    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.

    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).
