Top 3 Software for Illustration You Should Know About

Whether you want to take your illustration skills to the next level or are a fan of doodling, here is some illustration software that will help you make beautiful images, edit photos, and more.

1. Adobe Illustrator

Adobe Illustrator is the top choice for most Illustrators and graphic designers. It is packed full of all kinds of features anyone can think of. What makes Adobe Illustrator fun to explore is the vector graphics feature.

It is a learning curve to get used to the vector background and how it can be used to illustrate drawings. Still, once you get the hang of it, it’s compatible with both Windows and iOS, and it can be used to create any illustration, no matter how complicated it may seem. Some of the noteworthy features of Illustrator are:

  • Team collaboration and third-party involvement 
  • Real-time activity tracking  
  • Logo design 
  • CAD tools (great for designing engineering models and complex 3D illustrations) and much more

If you are serious about going deep into the illustrative world and want to give time to learn and master Abode Illustrator, then you can sign up for a 7-day free trial and subscribe to a standard $19.99/month payment plan.

2. Corel Painter

Corel Painter is a beautiful marriage between illustration software and photo editor so you can make and edit images in one place. It’s considered a great alternative to Adobe Photoshop, but with illustrative benefits as well.

Corel Painter can be accessed through a monthly subscription of $19.99 or buy the software for a lump sum of $429. Before committing to any payment plans, you can always play around with the free trial. Here are some very convincing features of Corel Painter:

  • Jitter-free illustration
  • Appropriate tools for blank canvas painting  
  • The abundance of tools for photo art and editing 
  • Integration with Photoshop 

Corel Painter is considered much pricier than other illustrative software, but it’s one of the most diverse and hands-on tools to make amazing graphics and edit photos.

3. Affinity Designer

If you’re looking for a memory-friendly alternative for illustration software, but want the same Abode experience, then Affinity Designer is the option. Unfortunately, it is only available for iOS and Windows and is not compatible with Android.

Still, on the flip side, you can use it on a laptop or tablet and illustrate anywhere and everywhere. You can access all the features with a lifetime subscription for Mac and Windows only for $54.99. Here are some attractive features of Affinity Designer:

  • Advanced layer technology for more in-depth illustrations 
  • Design management 
  • 2D drawings and vector graphics support
  • A plethora of brush designs and options 

Every digital Illustrator needs this software in their creative arsenal. Incorporating this software into your creative routine will give your images more flight, plus they’re way more fun than traditional pen and paper.
