Digital art software has come on leaps and bounds in recent years, and none more so than Clip Studio Paint. The professional painting and drawing tool has been designed from the ground up with artists in mind, featuring a comprehensive toolset that means no more time wasted on manual, repetitive tasks, instead letting artists focus on what they do best: be creative.
No matter what your artistic discipline – illustration, comics, animation, concept art etc – Clip Studio Paint has everything you need to create show-stopping artwork, at a fraction of the price of its competitors.
Natural drawing experience
Unlike some other digital painting applications, there is no steep learning curve with Clip Studio Paint. Super-intuitive, its features have been designed specifically to help support and enhance artists’ workflow.
The software has multiple brush options, with a variety of opacities, blending and weights all easily accessible. Clip Studio Paint also has customisable brush capabilities that could rival that of Photoshop, with users able to not only change the shape of a brush, but also the gap, scattering, density, stroke direction and much more – the possibilities are endless.
Clip Studio Paint also includes a number of features that will save artists precious time, including a library of 3D models for characters and objects. Extracting line art is a cinch with the conversion function, and you’ll be amazed how much time you can save with easy fill tools that can reference other layers or even fill areas with gaps in the line art.
Clip Studio Paint is not only incredibly versatile, but accessible too. Available on iPhone, iPad, Windows and MacOS, the software has identical functionality across operating systems, and comes with full cloud integration. So no matter where you are, or what device you’re working on, you have access to your files and tools for whenever creativity strikes.
Should you want to share your brushes with other artists , the web service Clip Studio Assets offers the means for artists to easily share customised and original brushes, backgrounds, textures and even 3D models. More than 40,000 materials are available, including free and commercial-use assets.
