  • aseprite

    Animated sprite editor & pixel art tool (Windows, macOS, Linux)

    I have also seen Aseprite being recommended. It looks nice and I'm sure it works well, but it is not open source unfortunately. There is an open source alternative called LibreSprite, which seems to mimic Aseprite quite closely.

  • Pixelorama

    A free & open-source 2D sprite editor, made with the Godot Engine! Available on Windows, Linux, macOS and the Web!

    I'm not too sure about a pen that would work nicely, but I do like Pixelorama. It allows you to make pixel art and includes layering/animation. On top of that, it's open source (I'm a big fan of that).

  • Scout APM

    Less time debugging, more time building. Scout APM allows you to find and fix performance issues with no hassle. Now with error monitoring and external services monitoring, Scout is a developer's best friend when it comes to application development.

  • LibreSprite

    Animated sprite editor & pixel art tool -- Fork of the last GPLv2 commit of Aseprite

    I have also seen Aseprite being recommended. It looks nice and I'm sure it works well, but it is not open source unfortunately. There is an open source alternative called LibreSprite, which seems to mimic Aseprite quite closely.

NOTE: The number of mentions on this list indicates mentions on common posts plus user suggested alternatives. Hence, a higher number means a more popular project.
