Developed by artist Peter Blaskovic, Rebelle is another highly versatile drawing and painting application. Described as “one-of-a-kind paint software”, it’s been designed for creatives working on watercolor, acrylic, wet and dry media artwork. As a professional digital artist, I use Corel Painter for drawing and painting, and Adobe Photoshop for photo retouching, image adjustments, and making composites. I do not feel inconvenienced Minecraft moving from one program to the other.

I take issue with the statement that Sketch took on Adobe and lost. Sketch actually beat Adobe by creating a tool specifically for UI design and became the industry standard.
Maybe not all the talented folks out there can afford Illustrator for competing worldwide with their graphic design. This lack of competitors was bad also because all the well rated design marketplaces adopted Adobe standards and not all the folks could keep up with Adobe’s prices to compete on those markets. Adobe has been my longstanding tools of choice, and there was no other option … until now. It combines the vector tools of Adobe Illustrator with many of the painting features of Adobe Photoshop. The one drawback of this powerhouse is its intense learning curve.
Serif’s Affinity Designer is a professional graphic design software that claims to be the fastest and most precise vector graphic design software available. Most also offer basic typography and page layout capability for producing small documents. These advanced drawing tools are powerful enough for high-end professional design and business use. GIMPis a dedicated art program specifically built to run on Linux operating systems. While it may not be as powerful as some of the software listed, it makes a big effort to do a lot of things, from photo editing to sketching to design.
Illustrator is not a waste of money, but like you have said – It has a lot of useless features. For a newbie in Graphics it’s very hard to use and understand. When Adobe introduced Xd I hoped that it will replace Illustrator with a software more simpler and easier to use, but that’s what not they had in mind. Sincerely I was looking forward for a new competitor for Illustrator because all the industry standards were made by Illustrator and this, economically and technically is not right. This lack of a good competitor caused all the professional design creation standards to be set by Adobe and this was bad for the industry.

In no way is Sketch meant to compete directly with Illustrator in terms of drawing or illustration. I still draw and design icons in Illustrator, but when it’s time to lay out dozens of interface screens, Sketch is the “go to” tool. Adobe’s entry in the UI design market, XD, is a poor imitation of Sketch and they have a long way to go to catch up in this space.
