I use 3D S Max and Photoshop for mostly everything. I really need to learn how to use GIMP. I think I did try it once.....many many years ago :p. Will definitely try some of the 2D and other software recommended here.

I use Sumopaint or inkscape for the stand-in graphics then move to blender for production graphics, Here are a couple of examples

I use Illustrator and Photoshop most of the time. The great feature of Smart-Objects makes it incredibly great to work cross-over.

I've used quite a few through my rpg maker and 001 engine project days, but mainly :

*Gimp (Powerful 2d image manipulation)
*Spriter (Added benefit of having a Construct 2 plugin)
*Spritesheet maker
*Glue It

For Music/Sounds

*Magix

Hey all! I'm thinking about getting into graphic arts and graphic design but not sure where to start. I feel like I have creativity in me but suck at traditional media, so I think graphics might be fun. Can anyone recommend some software for starting graphic artists that include a stylus and tablet or anything else that might be useful? Thanks in advance!

Use the programs people have mentioned in this thread. Gimp and Inkscape are the best free tools available: Gimp is for raster (pixel) graphics and Inkscape is for vectors. Or if you want to use the industry standard tools, get Adobe Creative Suite and use Photoshop and Illustrator.

And yes you should 100% use a graphics tablet. I use a Wacom tablet for all my graphics work.
