I have a 10 year old niece that is really good on Procreate and looking to go to the next best thing. Her dad doesn’t want to do a subscription to adobe photoshop/illustrator, but looking for a program he can purchase out right. Any suggestions?

In all honesty, procreate is somewhat a pro tool as is. It’s simple but effective if she’s looking to go into digital painting/illustration, but there’s also Corel draw and paint that you can buy outright

Honestly, Procreate is already a professional tool, especially for digital illustrators (that don't work with vector). I currently am using in on a children's book that will go into publication. Don't let the pricetag fool you. Otherwise, for ipad and no subscription, I would say Affinity Designer and Photo are your next best bets.

Look up Inkscape as an alternative to adobe illustrator and Pixlr as an alternative to photoshop. May be worth a try.

There’s affinity designer, but there is a learning curve. I think you can purchase outright. Canva would be a great free tool for a 10 year old to play around on.

Affinity Photo and Designer are probably the closest to what photoshop and illustrator offer but depending on what your niece decides to create her dad might have to shell out for a basic pen and drawing tablet.

Depends on what she is creating really, but I found figma has been great for my niece to build her skills up in.

Photoshop and Lightroom are $9.99/month. I would re-think that decision. That's the deal of the century.

Pirating it isn't that difficult but ethically questionable 😅

As a concept artist on the side, I do everything on procreate and most of my concept artist friends have moved to it too. Other okay products are Affinity Pro and Clip Studio Paint
