View Full Version : Robust Drawing Tool
March 22nd, 2012, 08:01 PM
Okay so I'm going to make a web comic as a project using free and/or opensource. To prove that paying isn't always something you have to do!
So, for drawing and doing a webcomic style, are there any recommendation as to what is pretty decent. Typical to have gimp installed and such, and also looked in the ubuntu software center.

GIMP is a good program and has all kinds of nice effects.
It has never crashed on me and I haven't had any problems....only good results.
Inkscape is good also but not sure if it meets comic standards.

You might like the latest Krita ..... check the templates ..... not sure how many exist now.
But this looks like a good feature for many comic type ideas .....
Just had a quick look .... at the Manga Template .... and layers .....
Try a search on speech bubbles too .... always come in handy ..... LINK (https://www.google.com/search?client=ubuntu&channel=fs&q=gimp+speech+bubbles&oe=utf-8&um=1&ie=UTF-8&hl=en&tbm=isch&source=og&sa=N&tab=wi&ei=7nprT96uOeX80QXA_anNBg&biw=1089&bih=513&sei=83prT9ikGqOt0QWH58m0Bg)

MyPaint may be of help to you.

not sure if i know what your looking for, but i like inkscape a lot, which is in the repositories, and a vector editor. for raster editing, aside from gimp, i like pinta, which is a clone of paint.net.
