There are dozens of ways to enjoy hand-drawn media such as manga and webcomics nowadays, and their rise in popularity has inspired hundreds of creators to draw their own comics and art. However, with hundreds of drawing apps available, it can be hard to choose the right one for you. If you’re looking for a popular, robust digital drawing tool, Clip Studio Paint has you covered with Pro and Ex editions for $29.99 and $109.99 respectively.
Clip Studio Paint is used by over 4 million artists around the world to bring their creative ideas to life. Clip Studio Paint Pro is the standard edition of the app, which includes over 10,000 free downloadable assets such as brushes, tones, 3D models, and more. Users can draw in vector format, create 3D models and drawings, and make moving illustrations and animations of up to 24 frames long. The Pro edition also comes with $5 credit for the clip asset store. The Ex edition provides all Pro edition features but also removes the short animation 24-frame limit.
Clip Studio Paint Pro and Ex are both on sale in the Macworld Shop. You can buy the Pro edition for $29.99 and the Ex edition for $109.99.
