Ideal program for artists who are used to traditional media

If you are an artist who is used to traditional media, but you want to try digital, then MyPaint is for you. The brushes simulate traditional media very well, and the interface is clean and simple. The whole program emphasizes real media so there are no tools such as straight line, box, circle, etc. However, this is not really a drawback because if these were included, the program would become very complicated very fast, and then you could just get Gimp or Photoshop. I would not recommend doing heavy-duty photo editing with this, but for drawing, this program is ideal.
