For a while I've been struggling with finding a program I could easily draw with. I like the curves and smoothing flash does, but there's no flexibilty with brush size. Photoshop has brush size but no smoothing as far as I knew. Illustrator isn't all that free-draw friendly, and Toon Boom has a strange set for the brush look (essentials at least).
While in a 3-D class i took for the sake of review, I saw an amazing looking animation, and heard it was Clip Studio Paint. A few days later there was a 63% off sale. What luck!
I'm not sure if I will be focusing on digital paint, or what exactly my next focus will be, but if I ever plan on doing a digital drawing, Clip Studio Paint is what I'm using.
They even have cool backgrounds!
This program is more so for manga artists it seems, but I like flexibilty in my drawings, and I do draw from time to time. I just wouldn't as much because of frustration with the way lines would look. Again, depending on what I focus on, we might see more...
My hair's not that spiky. If you're gonna do a cartoon, you gotta exaggerate!
