For years i used "paint shop pro version 6" (1999). And before that I think I used earlier versions of the same thing. The thing I liked about it was that rather than thinking in inches, it did everything in pixels.

Eventually, I tinkered a little with the animation thing. Like the little bunkhouse with the smoke at the bottom. And the fly on the moose.

I'm able to cobble things together with paint. But I liked paint shop pro 6 better. I once bought paint shop pro 10 and spent several months tinkering with it - but that got really complicated. I really liked version 6 better.

I tried GIMP for a while. I didn't quite get the hang of it.

Anybody have any suggestions for something that might be good for simple drawings that are pixel based - and has some animation stuff too?

Have you tried Paint.Net (http://www.getpaint.net/)? It has a ton of plugins, one might help do what you need.

Nope. Have you tried a few and found getpaint is the best?

I've been looking at pencil ...

Photoshop Elements? (I use full Photoshop, so I don't know if the Elements subset has everything you need. But something to look at)
