Free Art Programs for you to use!
« on: May 15, 2017, 10:24:46 pm »
Couldn't find a thread like this so I made one.
 
To prevent piracy here's a list of great free art programs you can use at the cost of $0.00'

For Vector graphics I hear really good things about Inkscape, it's an open source 'Professional'  vector graphics editor.
Here's their website https://inkscape.org/en/

The GNU Image Manipulation Program (Gimp) is an open source FREE photoshop alternative and is really good and has a lot of plugins available.
You can find the Gimp website here https://www.gimp.org/

FireAlpaca and MediBang Paint Pro, since these are both by the same developer I'm putting them together, FireAlpaca and MediBang Paint Pro are amazing programs if you are on a budget of Free and I'd highly recommend them.
Here is the website link to FireAlpaca and MediBang Paint Pro.
FireAlpaca
MediBang

All of these programs are great in their own way and I'd recommend trying multiples out and choosing the one you like!

Feel free to add to my list.

^^^ you can actually get adobe photoshop cs2 for free.
it may not run correctly on certain computers though, hence why adobe has it available for free. i think the most it's compatible with is windows 7? i had a windows 8 (i since then upgraded to 10 but) and if i recall correctly, cs2 acted funny.
HOWEVERRR you can still give it a shot.
i highly recommend using photoshop if you ever intend on pursuing art professionally!!

"Pixel Art Maker" is a free pixel art app in the App Store (idk about other devices). It's simple but works well, I've used it to make quite a few emotes including :rainbow: :cookie: and :unicorn:
