gimp is pretty good if you're more into editing rather then fresh drawing/painting, otherwise you should check out the 'light' version of Paint Tool SAI ( it's called "Easy Paint Tool SAI" as far as I remember <.<)

I would still recommend firealpaca, lol. To each their own it seems.

MyPaint is pretty good. It doesn't have a select tool, but it's got an infinite canvas, can be controlled entirely through hotkeys, a wide array of brush customizability, and some basic layer support. I find it's best for doing character design. Customizing brushes takes forever though - it's a REALLY wide array.

GIMP and Firealpaca are pretty impressive. SAI is pretty cheap, and that blows the competition out of the water by far.

Gimp. add on Gimp Paint Studio and you're dealing with a powerhouse relative to Photoshop.

Here guys, this is the first digital media I made using FireAlpaca. I'd recommend using it.

Krita is probably the best out there [link], this is some artwork created with it [link]

In a way, the word best is that there isn't such a thing, because we don't know what preferences you want.

Try them out and see what you like

It used to be Paint.Net but I don't believe they support tablet pen pressure anymore.

I've really liked MyPaint and occasionally use it to work on sketches/concepts/ideas because it has an infinite canvas. Other than that I don't use any other free programs although I've tried many.

Maybe Gimp will work for you? I've never liked it, but maybe it's better these days, it is the most advanced (more tools).

FireAlpaca is great. Paint tool sai is by far my favorite although it sin't free, but still a world cheaper than PS. Gimp is decent but a tad confusing sometimes.

For global production, probably GIMP. For digital drawing/painting, I'd go for FireAlpaca.
