  • Inkscape

    An Open Source vector graphics editor, with capabilities similar to Illustrator, CorelDraw, or Xara X, using the W3C standard Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) file format. Inkscape supports many advanced SVG features (markers, clones, alpha blending, etc.) and great care is taken in designing a streamlined interface. It is very easy to edit nodes, perform complex path operations, trace bitmaps and much more.

    • inkscape is nothing like manga studio at all Guest • Sep 2017 • 21 agrees and 1 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Inkscape is primarily a a Vector Graphics Editor, not predominantly bitmap like Clip Studio Paint. While CSP does have "Vector Brushes" and uses a selection of vector objects to create speech and thought balloons, these are really ways of applying brush tips and shapes in a rescaleable way, and a full set of vector manipulation is not available. Inkscape is more an Alternative to Corel Draw and Adobe Illustrator, NOT Clip Studio Paint. lauraess1Jun 2018 • 2 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree

  • Verve Painter

    Verve (Dictionary: Energy and enthusiasm in the expression of ideas, especially in artistic performance or composition...) is the result of a curious idea I had to try using the graphics hardware to run a fluid dynamics simulation. Despite some little flaws, as you may observe at faster motions, it works astonishingly well across rather large resolutions. This permits highly detailed simulations of all kinds of liquids, and it screamed to be used for painting.
