Recently I’ve been looking into digital illustration along with painting and other forms of composition. Traditional A4/pencil work is still the go-to solution for any illustrator. But digital work is often quicker and easier to clean up – if you work in the right software. Nowadays there are many more expensive solutions but you don’t need to feel shackled into using a single program.
To help newer creative artists I’ve put together this small collection of programs for drawing and illustrating. You can get work done using a mouse and keyboard, but the digital tablets are much easier and better-suited for drawing. In the past we’ve written about drawing apps for iPad and these desktop programs are the perfect extension for your artwork.
