Currently I do a lot of traditional drawing and hand cartooning, but not much in the way of digital. I recently picked up a Surface and have been doing some drawing and painting with Art Rage.
I'm interested in creating art (strictly 2D) for games and I'm wondering what software packages are good for doing drawings and animations for in games and what some of the benefits/tradeoffs of the different options are?
I do have a license to Spriter Pro, but I haven't used it at all, it came with a Steam bundle of some other software I was purchasing. Is this good for creating game animations?
