I'm using Photoshop CS3 for mine, but there are plenty of great free applications available. A few examples to get you started:

Graphics Gale is popular for pixel art. [url:2eu7hfpm]http://www.humanbalance.net/gale/us/[/url:2eu7hfpm]

GIMP is a popular Photoshop alternative. [url:2eu7hfpm]http://www.gimp.org/[/url:2eu7hfpm]

Krita is a popular and praised Photoshop alternative designed for the Linux OS. [url:2eu7hfpm]http://www.koffice.org/krita/[/url:2eu7hfpm]

Pixen is a popular artist's and animator's program for the Mac OS. [url:2eu7hfpm]http://opensword.org/Pixen/[/url:2eu7hfpm]

So whatever your OS of choice, there's plenty of options! A graphics tablet such as a Wacom also helps with image creation a lot, but I've still seen a lot of great work produced with a mouse and keyboard. Ultimately, it's all about your own artistic competence of course. These programs don't create the art for you. They're just another artist's medium.

Have fun!

But construct works only on Windows right? so I guess you won't reallybe looking for those other software. basically, it's Photoshop or GIMp. For Animation and pixelart, GraphicsGale.
