photoshop
however it should work for most other art programs…I suggest gimp if you don't have photoshop <33

eeer I do not completely know for sure because I have Windows 8.1, but here is a list of really fantastic apps that are free and are good for looking into
Paint.net/ My personal favorite 
FireAlpaca/ Pretty good, is a good source 
Twistedbrush/ I do not have and doesn't work for my laptop so this may work for you, but I do not know for sure...
serif/In the process of getting it now
Inkscape/ I don't know much about but I am interested in getting this, and I believe they have it for all laptop/computer types including yours
gimp/ but if you're anything like me you'll hate the setup, or if you're used to a different program you'll still hate it... but who know you might find a likings to it

ok so thats pretty much all that I really know or trust, but the two that I really recommend are the two first ones, I love these two to pieces and they are really simple and allow layers,shading,editing,and awesome stuff like that so just check those two out and mess around to get a feeling to them.
Hope this helps XOXO X3

how big is it when you first start it?
is it 50X50 from the very beginning or do you start bigger and end up residing it to be smaller?
