im surprised to see so many kidpix! i'd never heard of that program as a child. actually, i don't think i was aware of any drawing program outside of photoshop.

my first art program has to be photofiltre studio. it's not a drawing program! at least i dont think so? i was using it for photomanipulation, that's how i expressed myself. with warrior cats RP banners and profile pictures. with the whimsical stamps, the blurred transitions from pictures of cats to pictures of forests and vague textures... was this a thing in the american mid/2000s warrior cat rp forum scene at all? actually this might be outside of this thread's jurisdiction. maybe i'll make a thread about that later. or find the appropriate thread for it!

Good old boring MS Paint.

And a new discovery was made! A bug in Paint triggers a superzoom, particularly useful for pixeling. Usually, there is only 8x scaling available. But if you pixel-perfect click below "8x" (green arrow on the image in the attachments), then another zoom step is made. Wow! A program, that has few functions by itself, even has more functions behind bugs.

Either Kid Pix Studio Deluxe or MS Paint. I still have one of my MS Paint drawings from back then around somewhere.

The first program I used to draw (if you don't count the couple of cbeebies flash games that you could draw pictures in) was GIMP. In elementary school I was signed up for an extracurricular to learn how to use it  :ok:

Then when I got a wacom tablet I got a CLIP STUDIO PAINT license, so I started using that.

As a child I doodled a lot in Art Academy (y'know, that DS game that's designed to teach you realism?) but as for "Proper Art" (Aka not kid scribbles) it was Autodesk Sketchbook, I think. Not very many features and I haven't used it in who knows how long but it was my first introduction into digital art. Then I moved to Krita (both of those I used on my phone) which I still ocasionally use to this day. Now, though I use Krita on my laptop with a drawing tablet. It's just the easiest for me.

My first art program was Tux Paint! I used it exclusively at school after completing assignments for our computer science class. I did not make any crazy art in there as I mostly messed around to kill time. I only started making less random drawings by moving straight into Photoshop. I also recall using Adobe Sketch for a good while until the software was discontinued from support.

i think my first dedicated art program except for ye olde ms paint must have been flipnote studio on my dsi, except i didn't know how to animate lol. i never used the hatena thing much but i do distinctly remember using it once and finding a really cool sonic the hedgehog animation.

Hmm.......does Pictochat count? I remember I had a friend who lived in the apartment beneath ours as a kid, and she had a DSi so she was able to write with the rainbow pen...I, a lowly proletariat was stuck with the DSLite (which I still adore, don't get me wrong!), and I was so jealous!
