      GIMP vs FireAlpaca opinions
      This alternative is disputed. GIMP is still a legitimate alternative to FireAlpaca, but it might have issues that some users think are important.

      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.
