I'm trying to develop a game for smart phones. If I want to easily animate characters and output character-sheets. What's a good tool to use? There is so much software and I can't test all of them.

I don't want to use Photoshop because it is an indirect app to do that. My priorities are free & friendly-user software.

I'm not going to use Aseprite because this uses low-resolution window frames and fonts. Opinions vary on whether this sets the mood or gets in the way. Pixel-styled interface can be jarring.

spriting : create retro-style sprites for games

pixelart : create crazy/pretty pixelart animations for fun !
