If you don't have Photoshop, there are free alternatives that I have listed below in no particular order.
You will have an easier time if you own a graphic tablet (plugs in to your PC), as opposed to drawing with your mouse.


Alpaca
http://firealpaca.com/en
(recommended by Luna)
"Fire Alpaca is good for art too, it's pretty easy to get used to" - Luna.


Pixlr
https://pixlr.com/editor/
Online (no need to download) and very similar to Photoshop, but with fewer functions. Fast & convenient.


Krita
https://krita.org/en/
Krita, a popular choice for artists.


Gimp
https://www.gimp.org/
A very respected free opensource software. I don't like it, but many do.



MediBang Paint
https://medibangpaint.com/en/
(recommended by Luna)
"MediBang Paint is also a nice program and it's available for iPhone, iPad and Android devices". - Luna.

You're welcome, I'll let you know if I think of anymore. I've tried my fair share of art programs, haha.

An app I would like to suggest is ibisPaintx. It's free and really good for drawing and editing photos (if you like to edit them "artistically"), and there is a full version of it called ibisPaint (which costs money).
