FireAlpaca by KaceyMeg FireAlpaca by KaceyMeg
I don't actually use this program! I just gave it a test run. Any questions asked will be left unanswered as I just don't know the answer! My apoloigies you will have to find a tutorial/figure it out on your own

HEY SO I saw a new program floating around and thought I'd give it a test run.
FIRE ALPACA
Its a free image editing program that acts similar to SAI.

Line Smoothing much like the stabiliser in SAI. For those who would like smoother lines but havenít quite got a steady enough hand

Layer modes and opacity like Photoshop and SAI. Not quite as much options as PS but enough for those who enjoy multiply shading (like myself hahaha) and could be used for applying textures

Clipping groups and Transparency lock (called clipping and protect alpha) another like PS and SAI. I use these when blocking in colours and shading. One locks the alpha as it says, so you only can colour on the pixels youíve already drawn. The other does the same without editing the previous layer in any way. (wow me good at explaining)

PSD compatible wow how awesome is this, like SAI you can save your file as a PSD! For those who like to draw in one program then edit it, texture it, add text to it etc in photoshop (also something I do)

Brush options I havenít tested any others. The pen tool is quite like SAIís as it is smooth and crisp. However the pressure sensitivity is a little odd? Itís sensitive to change, but the pixels donít reach 0 quite as smooth.. if that makes sense? Itís more like photoshops size change than SAIs.

Itís rather easy to use!

Perfect for those of you who have MACs and want something similar to SAI (or just a nice easy art program), those who donít like the pirate programs but canít afford any and just people who like free stuff WHO DOESNíT LIKE FREE STUFF.

ALSO THE NAME IS REALLY CUTE HAHAHA

You have lovely style! And thanks for explaining, I had absolutely no idea what clipping/transparency lock is...
I just downloaded it yesterday, seems quite simple to learn even for a newbie...
