Illustrator = inkscape
PS = Krita/Gimp/PDN


Agree with the above and saying photoshop is the best.... again completely different from inkscape :/
Depends what you want to do bud sprites or vector images (Still sprites but not pixel)

About 90% of my sprites I have completed them with Inkscape, is a great vector tool. I might try Krita since seems to be a good software to use

I myself was quite impressed with Krita (the new 3.0 release). Very impressive brush settings, and my favorute so far: the drawing assistants. The more intriguing features I mentioned in a short article with videos (if it could be of any help):

Frankly I did not expect to find something so nicely developed from a free, open-source app. Thumbs up for their good work.

Affinity Designer is fantastic as well.

There's a free beta version for windows right now. But its been around for OSX for a while now. $50

That gives me 3 programs to learn.
Thanks for giving my thoughts some validity.

Great choices. Have you grabbed the latest Krita? It's amazing.

I am lucky enough to have Photoshop CS6 portable, and helps a lot for retouching already made drawings.
Adobe Flash has the best brush for mouse users, so its perfect for making the characters. Vector software is always recommended over raster software IF you have no drawing skills.

My advice - find the best vector program that you feel comfortable using. Animation can be done in pretty much every software that has layers.
