>>2336125 Pretty good considering it's free. Especially after the Kickstarter campaign.
I'm somewhat bummed out that the developers are strictly focusing their attention on developing animation tools. But it was part of their kickstarter so I can't complain. Hopefully they'll wrap it up soon and come back to polishing what they've already got.

>>2336346 Medibang Pro is the 'spiritual' successor to FireAlpaca, so it's like a free branch of OpenCanvas, albeit limited in some aspects. It's alright, it's sitting somewhere inbetween FireAlpaca and Manga Studio in features, is lightweight and it's got a free cloud service. For 'serious' desktop stuff it's a little too limited for me, but the android app is solid.
>>2336450 Speaking of Medibang and OpenCanvas, what is with this trend of watering down the watercolor tool from 3 to 2 parameters (from load/dilution/persistence to load/dilution alone) in some of these Japanese programs lately? What's the point?
Nowhere near as fully featured as many others but for illustration only it's really great, I started here than moved to others but this is still my preferred program if I'm just wipping up a quick sketch or painting. Also the freedom stuff is great, I've never tried it on windows but on both Debian and Arch it works great, I just use PS if I'm on windows.
>>2336575 This. Krita is a fantastic program, most of the people ITT likely haven't used it or didn't even spend two minutes to find out how it works. They've just come in here to shit in OP's cornflakes and act like fukken contrarian fagguts.
>>2336782 There is a weighted smoothing and stabilizer setting for the brush, not sure how good it is compared to the competition since I don't do lineart. It seems decent but is fairly basic compared to something like Lazy Nezumi Pro on PS.
Krita is basically the best option I've found, but it isn't without its issues.
Cons: Hotkeys are a bit of a mess (split into two places, some functions aren't changeable) Performance seems shoddy on windows (but fine on Linux) Transform tools can be a bit obnoxious (no simple four-corner deform, although there is a clever perspective deform) Lacks some really high end features regarding layers and filters
Pros: It has a stabilizer that rivals Sai Some great perspective drawing utilities Really nice brush engine (Lacks a pixelated brush though if that's important to you) Free, open source, in active development
On a personal level the main things that bug me about Krita are interface issues regarding hotkeys and how easy some tools are to use (I wish temporary constrained rulers were less clunky to place down and use, and some hotkeys for switching brushes and scaling things like opacity or softness would be great) and there are some minor features that would be nice (zoom-independent brush sizing, generally smoother performance on windows) but besides those, it really is kind of the best you're going to get for any kind of serious work unless you're really, REALLY keen on photoshop.
>>2340956 not that guy but you're a dipshit. something being free and open source is beneficial for obvious reasons, the fact that it's still in active development means that it isn't abandonware like sai and is therefore also a pro
