Uh, I'm finding it hard to stay active. Nowadays, there's hardly anything I can post a reply on. Mostly issues other people have. I don't really know a lot about these issues unlike other people.
With that out of the way, what Linux art app do you prefer?
- Something else
I voted GIMP...
Inkscape, too. they have different applicability, so cannot really be voted against each other.
And I am just generally unhappy with GIMP over-all these days. It is chock full of bugs that persist.
It breaks workflow and makes it difficult to just do your work without having to reinitialize often.
I don't have sophisticated graphics requirements, so I went with something as Paint-like as I could find:
sudo apt show drawing

Description: simple drawing application for the GNOME desktop
Drawing is a simple image editor similar to MS Paint and designed
for the GNOME desktop environment. It includes a set of image
manipulation tools for every day basic image editing needs.
Voted inkscape for vector graphic, but I use Gimp as well for ordinary things.
I'm terrible at these things but I'm more used to Gimp than any other options, so I voted for it.
Gimp is best suited for my purpose. I don't use it professionally and don't really know its full potential or limitations.
I am shocked that Krita is so low. It is the 3rd best overall art application period imo
(Photoshop > Affinity Photo > Krita)
Kinda a different style of art than what you are talking about I think. But Aseprite is amazing for a lot of stuff I do.
That's what I use. Not to be biased or anything.
I also really like the newest Pinta.
I think it is because Krita is a KDE app and therefor, does not match other desktops. KDE users would be the most familiar with it; and Zorin OS does not come with KDE desktop.
On a Kubuntu Forum, it would likely have Much Higher standing.
I like that Pinta looks and functions a lot like Paint in Windows, but man... 27 dependencies! I'll stick with Drawing.

I was thinking this myself. But Krita has found a pretty large audience even outside the KDE space. Either way as long as people are happy using what they are using lol.
I did this in Pinta, quick and sloppy. My neighbor put modern brick on a colonial so I fixed it. Got rid of the shutters that don't fit.
Another neighbor put brick on the bottom of his house. I would have used it to demarcate the odd garage.
