Anything other than Adobe?


New Member
Hello! I'm new to the forums but also new to taking my illustrations to the 'next level' of trying to work semi professionally as an illustrator.

I have worked with Adobe in the past, and I know this is most probably the industry standard (with the little knowledge I have) BUT my computer with the Adobe suite buggered up and I cannot afford to buy such an expensive product right now.

I can only afford a hundred pounds tops.

So I would like to ask all of you lovely illustrators out there is there if there is any software which you work with or have worked with?
I do not need to create anything too fancy or visually complicated. My main requirements are to just scan the drawing through, neaten up line work, colour in (with a few brush options) and to format it accordingly to send it to a printers or client.

All pretty basic, is there really nothing else other than Adobe to do these things?

Big thanks
There's loads of stuff

Google Sketch Up
Serif Draw Plus Free
Affinity Designer

To name a few :) All free
