Has a pretty garbage licensing scheme, limiting you to 2 installs per license. It's fine for people who only have a single machine they dual boot on or have two separate devices, but anyone who runs multiple dual-boot systems are in a heap of trouble with the licensing scheme due to the limits on deactivations.

Although Clip Studio Paint, or CSP, was originally targeted towards manga and comic artists, it has many features that are just as good or even better than popular competitors like Photoshop, SAI or Krita. For one the brush engine is great, has a big library of stock brushes and the big advantage that you can create vector strokes with any brush and any texture. This makes retroactive corrections pretty easy (NOTE: vector strokes are stil rasterized!).
What sold me was the incredibly natural feel of the brushes and blending functions. It works realisticly, actually blending the strokes and not just overlaying it, like in many other softwares. This makes painting really fun and the only programs I encountered, that did this better were Corel Painter and Paintstorm Studio.

So don't be fooled by it's label as "manga studio", it is high level software for illustration, sketching, concept art and even traditional frame by frame animation.

Thanks for sharing the Alternativea. It's really good to have medibang. It's awesome. I have Clip Studio in my PC, I was finding a similar app for android and I found your blog. It really helps me a lot.

I love the responsiveness of the program - it's easily the BEST drawing tool I've ever used! The interface is clean and streamlined. The inking engine is FABULOUS. I literally yelled "WOW!!!" when I started using it. (I have never done that before with any software I've used.) You have a winner here!
