Staying Creative on a Budget

With the recent problems happening around the world regarding the coronavirus, lockdowns and job losses, many digital artists have been feeling the pinch lately, especially when it comes to affording the software they constantly need to keep paying for in order to continue to create art. I list my favorite alternatives to the big-boy software, and how you can keep creating awesome stuff on the cheap, whilst putting my money where my mouth is (heh) by showing the creation of a cartoon dinosaur with the very software I recommend.

    Thank goodness for Affinity.
