Welcome sir. Very nice Mint desktop. I have zero talent, so I wouldn't be the one to advise you on the software you need. We do however have a rather large number of very talented people on this forum that may be able to help you.
Try posting in the Art section, These guys are not only talented but very willing to be helpful and supportive.
Enjoy your stay.
PS: The sarcasm with the Windows desktop didn't go unnoticed.
