    Normally I would suggest photoshop, but for anime, you might be better off using a vector-based program such as Adobe Illustrator, which lets you create geometrical shapes, and fill them with textures or gradients. It can be a little hard to get used to, but it would work really well with what you're trying to do. If you don't already have it, or it's out of your price range, there are some free alternatives, such as inkscape, which you can download online.

    Adobe Flash

  • Well, you say youve already used it, but id say photoshop.

    It does SEEM to have its limits, but it can do so much, alot of people do alot of drawing in a huge amount of styles with it, i also recomend getting a pc tablet pen thing. lol.

    I have one, got it for a good price, and its very good for what i do.

    "genius pensketch 9x12"

    And for tips on getting the most out of photoshop and tutorials on drawing with it, just google it, because there are so many helpful pages and videos for this kinda thing.

    FLASH for sure

    I have taken many art computer program classes and what you're describing is definitely flash. If you learn to use it well, you can make a cartoon in like 5 minutes. I've seen people do it and it's incredibly easy looking.

    Look up flash! good luck!

    Source(s): you could also try adobe illustrator, but that's more just creating art and cartoon stills instead of animation took computer focused classes for 8 years*

    Illustrator ... unlike photoshop, this program is meant for illustrating

    unless you scan your hand drawings in, photoshop is always the best

    Adobe Illustrator is an awesome tool to learn. You can scale your drawings without loss of quality and they look really sharp. You can scan your doodles and trace them in illustrator to clean them up and add color.

    GIMP is good. You can animate too, to an extent. And It's free and legal to download online.
