    Are you sure? It doesn't look really... good?

    I use GIMP. It's a bit confusing, but it's mainly what I'm used to. You could try Krita, but it never worked for me because I don't have a drawing pad

    GIMP because Stockholm Syndrome.
    Krita because you're too lazy to pirate photoshop.
    Photoshop because it's what everyone else was using.
    Just try things off those lists until something clicks.


    They're pretty cheap, good options under 100$. Wacom almost doubled in price since I bought mine, but they tend to last longer than most. You can get a used Wacom or an almost-new something else for pretty cheap too if you check craigslist/ebay.

    I mostly just do traditional artwork and do basic coloring over it in gimp. But you're right I should get one.
