    • Entirely free. Easier to use than Inkscape, better with vectors than Krita, and available on more platforms than Sketch. It's a little slow and gummy when you've made a very complicated picture, but it's honestly the best possible alternative I've found. Thank you, and thanks to Gravit. rvanarsdaleMay 2017 Disagree   Agree
    • It is a simple yet powerful vector editing program suitable for vector artists, web designers, publishers, logo designers, etc. It also features non-destructing boolean operations (better pathfinder), showcase mode, multiple strokes and fills, global palettes, and more, surprisingly without any clutter.

Still the best illustration app around

about Adobe Illustrator CC · ·

Despite the relatively high price, Illustrator is still the best and widely used illustration program on the market. After trying most of the alternatives listed, there's no way I could jump ship anytime soon.

I still cheer for an open source, free or lower-priced vector graphics editor to come by and usurp Adobe Illustrator, but for now it's the de facto standard. I like it very much, but the price (even if I skip a generation) can be a little tough to swallow.
