Let’s face it: Technology makes life a lot easier, doesn’t it? With a few swipes and taps, you can do just about anything from hailing a cab, to meeting romantic suitors, to ordering a heaping plate of lo mein straight to your doorstep.
However, one of the (very) few things technology can’t simplify is art. Sure, there are a ton of apps that’ll turn your ho-hum snapshot into an Insta-worthy, filtered-to-perfection masterpiece. But creating something from scratch? You’ll need to learn a bunch of coding languages, programs, and shortcuts.
Clip Studio Paint Pro is an all-inclusive software meant to make it easier to draw and paint on your computer or tablet. Once you download the software, you’ll have access to over 10,000 downloadable brushes as well as a handful of 3D models and figurines. If you’re looking to create art inspired by the real world, you can also sync Clip Studio Paint Pro with PhotoShop.
Normally, it costs $60, but for the next few days Clip Studio Paint Pro is half off. If you’re looking to break into the illustrating biz, create your own comic, or fine-tune your drawing skills, this program could get you started.
