Hmmm... I'm not sure what do mean by "better?"
If by "better" you mean "easier," there are a ton of professional vector and paint programs out there that make certain tasks less complicated. ArcadEd mentioned a couple popular ones.
There's also Flash, CorelDraw, Painter, Inkscape, Sketchbook Pro, iDraw, DrawPlus... to name a few more. There's also a ton of tutorials online if you want to teach yourself how to better use the software. Try DeviantArt or Tuts+.
