      Ummm.. First of all, It is for windows!!! It really does have some similarities and outrages features compared with procreate... One of the best open-source software too...

      it's a very vast illustration program with great tools and is easy to use, a program from the comunity to the comunity, it's open source and the (in my opinion) the best the digital illustration world can offer.

      You can do almost everything with it that you'd do with Procreate. However shading is a little harder, but you can do it after some practice.

      uhada You get a classic interface with a lot of the painting and editing tools you know from Photoshop. Some limitations, but it's free (with a few ads in the menu). Personally I use Affinity Designer and Photo that are not free, but very powerful!

      Medibang has very limited brushed and other ways to draw and I find it quite clunky.

      For me great set of brushes, easy to use, cool tools like joining layers etc. And also beautiful and very readable design of the whole software makes it really easy to learn.

      I've tried Medibang, but it's just not as good because it doesn't have very good brushes.

      Because it is almost identical to procreate and it has so much brushes and you can also watch an ad to unlock the brushes that you have to pay for 18 hours! Amazing! <3

      I like Ibis as an alternative because I have an android tablet and Procreate is unsupported. I don't want to get an Ipad because of the great features android comes with.

      Infinite Painter can do basically everything that Procreate can. But it's more affordable. It has a large variety of brushes. I think it is a really great alternative.
