      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.

      I have been using Autodesk for over 2 years and it is literally the BEST free drawing app i have found. There is literally barely anything you can't do with this app.

      It is SO easy to navigate and has so many different brushes and tools! It's somewhat similar to Ibis Paint X and Procreate, but it's definitely easier to use, as someone who has tried all three apps. I would definitely recommend Autodesk SketchBook to anyone, beginner or expert.

      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.

      *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.
