If you already use both, why can't you decide for yourself, since we don't know which style you're working in?

I've tried Krita , it's very nice. However , as a rule I prefer to work as much as possible within the same application , so my answer would be TVPaint.

But this is sort of like the old question : which pencil is best -- Tombow 2B or Blackwing 602 ? (to name just two of the many options) but the answer is always the same: the "best" pencil is the one that you prefer to draw with.

Ever considered using Corel Painter or Artrage?

I don't understand the issue...you should paint in whichever program or medium your most comfortable in. You can import background images created in other programs, or scan or photograph practical art, so it really doesn't matter much where you create them.

TVPaint has a lot of very nice tools and if you like painting with it, that's obviously the most convenient option. If you like Krita, another excellent paint program, you should use that.

In my case, these days I do a lot of my painting in Procreate on an iPad because 1.) I like the program's gesture-based UI a lot, and 2.) painting on the iPad is more convenient for me when I'm away from my desk. When I'm done, I send the final image to dropbox so it will be waiting for me (and TVPaint) when I get home, I may do some additional touchups or processing in TVPaint or another paint program before importing it to TVP, depending on what the image needs.

So use what you like, not what somebody tells you to use. (Well, unless it's a job requirement, of course.) :)

That's a weird question. Can't you figure out playing around yourself? :p haha

I want to not love my iPad as much as I do, but I do my backgrounds in procreate, and if I'm just trying to figure something out or test something, I will use rough animator, because well TVpaint isn't out on it.
