Inkscape would be a good program for you to start with, primarily because it’s free and will get you introduced to vectors. CorelDraw and Adobe Illustrator (which is the industry standard) will be of more interest to you after you’ve gotten a good grasp on how vectors work.

Have fun and enjoy your new tablet!

Corel is amazing. It is very easy to use, and effective.

Than you! I will try the ones out! Already got myself CorelDraw and it is really great!

I’m a big fan of Corel Painter – with a Wacom tablet (ideally the Citique, but it’s pricey).

You can try Painter here:

I used to own photoshop, but I can no longer afford the new versions. So then in pursuit of a new program I encountered, which for me works just fine. It’s free and pretty easy to use. I have no personal experience with corel, but from what I have heard from my friends they are satisfied with its capabilities and greatly enjoy it.

If you’d like to pay for it, Adobe Illustrator is fantastic.
