    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.

    Procreate is just the same as Ibispaint but I saw all over the internet that procreate has more brush(s) than Ibispaint and I hope that you will add a bit more brush:>

    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.

    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.

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

    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!

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

    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.

    In my opinion, clip studio has amazing preformance even with my low amounts of RAM. brushes are extremely customizable and its really easy to learn, especially for a professional program. I would highly recommend if you're in need of a simple yet capable drawing or animating tool on any platform.

    *Full desktop version IS available in ArtRage (and also offers lighter versions for iPad and other tablets, and phones). *Richness of textures: even if printed in flat 2D, gives a sense of thickness of oils and other media, and grain. *Affordable, and no need to renew licence yearly: lifetime full ownership.

    Concepts is the closest alternative to Procreate, it allows fluid and intuitive workflow. It's intended for pen devices like Surface Pro or iPad, and is crossplatform.
