Messing with Clip Studio

I’ll always prefer “real” analogue pens, pencils and paper, but I gave Clip Studio another go at the weekend along with my Huion GT-220 v2 tablet monitor and I ended up enjoying myself. This is a very early work-in-progress from something I’ve been thinking about while I work on freelance gigs.

Clip Studio’s drawing tools are second to none I’d say, and I particularly like the vector ink pen(s). The pencil tools have a very authentic feel and behaviour. As for the Huion, I bought it for a job and when that was done I stored it away for a while, but I’m glad to re-visit. If you’re looking at a good, value-for-money alternative to a Wacom Cintiq then I’d recommend it. The pen stylus isn’t the greatest quality, but the display itself is very good inded. Considering the GT-220 cost less than half of the equivalent Wacom, I’d recommend it for anyone who doesn’t want to spend too much on a first drawing monitor. Obviously, you could argue that an iPad Pro would be a better choice (and Clip Studio has a reportedly great version available for iOS), but personally I like having my work tools on a “proper”operating system such as Windows or MacOS (as far as I’m aware there is no Linux support from Clip Studio or Huion)

    1. Thanks Cath. I always go for cheaper 😉 I haven’t used Pshop in such a long time, so can’t compere notes. I use Clip studio with the monitor, and no complaints so far. Are you using yours with TV Paint at all?
