GIMP vs FireAlpaca opinions
GIMP is for photo editing mainly. I dont try to draw with it.
GIMP is way more oriented to image editing photoshop-style than to digital art.
its more for photo editing. firealpaca is for drawing
GIMP is a photo editor; it's possible to use it for digital drawing, but very complicated and not user-friendly.
Not fun for drawing. Editing maybe, but not art.
horrible for drawing from scratch
Gimp is just really bad, firealpaca is a lot better

Krita vs FireAlpaca opinions
My sister uses it and it is amazing for drawing if you have a drawing pad to connect to the computer.
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's very good for drawing!! You can do that cool selection coloring thing!
It isn't a very good drawing app, FireAlpaca is much better but fades away over time.
