Hey guys I need some help here, I'm trying to find an easy to use free drawing program. I will be doing drawings and such on the program and *not* photo editing. I've tried to use gimp, but it is far too complicated for me... and on the other hand programs like windows paint are children's programs. The art I wish to do is very simple, such as My Little Pony art and similar art. So long story short I need a free, simple to use, and virus free drawing program. I really would appreciate the help thanks!! :)

I suggest "Fire Alpaca" it is a new free program for PC and Mac. It is just like Sai but with less options,

Thanks, I faved Corel, Gimp, and Pain.NET on the spot. People make all kinds of tutorials out there but finding good ones are a challenge and this cuts down the time by loads. Plus, they are all in one place. Again, thank you very much. :D

Hey I don't see you have pixlr, which is an awesome free online program. I found this through sai too.

you really need to add this: [link]
MyPaint is a relatively new program for digital painting and I totally love it.
Pretty lightweight, fast and has tons of different brushes integrated.

Try it out!

Just to let you know, is now entirely free. [link]
Also, they've added a few programs since this was last updated. Including an audio editor. [link]
Great list.
