“Sketchpad is a great start for beginners; succinct and practical in its offerings. When teamed with the freeware GIMP you almost have a full suite (sans the complex timeline tools) as you can export as gif into GIMP for finer details, adjustments and effects. Perfect for quickly whipping up comic ideas and gifs to share in social media or on Youtube while, at the same time, the learning curve can be managed by an Eight-Year-Old”
