    Lots of people use GIMP for photo editing, and it's not the best alternative to Krita for digital drawing/painting but you can definitely use GIMP for drawing and painting and not only to edit photos.

    GIMP is a great application, but not comparable to Krita, because it is not centered around drawing.

    This is NOT a good drawing program. Its more of a Photoshop. I am looking for something closer to Adobe Illustrator, Krita, etc.

    Default brushes in MediBang cannot be compared to Krita’s engine. MediBang may be a nice tool for manga creation but it cannot compete relative to digital painting with Krita.

    I know it's proprietary, but unlike Krita, it has instant support for pen pressure on Android tablets like the Tab S6 Lite. You can also remove internet permissions on LineageOS, so for me, it checks all the boxes.
