Best book illustration design software

GIMP book illustration software

Closing our list is probably what many of you already know as an entry-level graphics design tool. This tool can be downloaded freely and it is also open source.

These two make it an excellent choice for those that are just starting their journey into the world of creating book illustrations, or any other kind of digital art for that matter.

More so, the fact that it is open-source means that it is also constantly updated with new features, without straying away from the original intent of creating the perfect beginner’s tool.

However, if book illustrations are all that concern you, then GIMP should be on your priority list.

Here are some of GIMP’s main features:

  • Completely free
  • Open-source
  • Constant updates
  • Intuitive design
  • Entry-level software

Art is art, and with sufficient talent, you could probably get away with creating superb images using programs like Microsoft Paint.

However, not everyone is born with that talent, so having a good third-party graphics design tool can greatly reduce the burden of creation, allowing you to create illustrations that will definitely bring joy and awe to your readers.
