It works very well and it’s an open-source program which means it’s completely free. The layout is really nice and easy to work with. It’s also comparable with any format and it’s a light program which means it doesn’t take much to run it and not much space to install it either. It’s an easy recommend especially for anyone new to digital art.

It was approachable and pretty full-featured in its design. The docking system is convenient and after a few basics I was able to get a good ways before really having to resort to online materials for extra help. The dock, tile, and brush system are all very solid and flexible. Although the layout is messy in some ways it keeps the main tasks fairly up-front and simple. They also seem to be constantly updating the program. While it doesn’t have touch controls, its support for my drawing tablet seemed to be pretty robust (full disclosure, there are so many tablets on the market that it’s hard to say whether my experience is representative).
