      Not fun for drawing. Editing maybe, but not art.

      GIMP is way more oriented to image editing photoshop-style than to digital art.

      GIMP is a photo editor; it's possible to use it for digital drawing, but very complicated and not user-friendly.

      lian00 Krita is much more powerful than FireAlpaca for drawing and painting. There is no real comparison possible. FireAlpaca is a light/simple drawing software with poor brush engine and Krita is a complete drawing and painting solution (and manages animation too).

      It isn't a very good drawing app, FireAlpaca is much better but fades away over time.

      Adobe Photoshop vs FireAlpaca opinions
      Some users think Adobe Photoshop is a great alternative to FireAlpaca, some don't.
      though designed for photo editing it is a phenomenal drawing app the thing that can make fire alpaca seem better is how photoshop has more than one purpose and isn't laid out optimally for artists initially but you'll find layouts online if needed

    4. Paint.net is a free and very capable image editing software for Windows. Great alternative to Photoshop for people that do not need all the stuff PS offers.
      Paint.NET vs FireAlpaca opinions
      Most users think Paint.NET is a great alternative to FireAlpaca.
      TECHNICALLY freemium...you can download the 100% free version from the website, they only charge for the Windows Store version. Better Community and Developer support than any other option in this list INCLUDING GIMP.
