    Question Is there Redundancy between ArtRage and Clip Studio Paint?

    Hello World!

    Starting off, I do not know how to use Adobe Photoshop, however, I am experienced in using GIMP.
    In May 2015, I got ArtRage 4.5 for Windows.
    In March 2016, I bought ArtRage for Android (for my Samsung Galaxy Tab 3) and Clip Studio Paint Pro.

    I am still a complete newbie (new user) at creating digital art, or art in general.

    I have been noticing Clip Studio Paint Pro (formerly Manga Studio) has lots of stuff (a.k.a. features) that exist in ArtRage 4.

    ArtRage compares itself to Adobe Photoshop. Clip Studio Paint compares itself to Adobe Photoshop.

    Is there redundancy between ArtRage and Clip Studio Paint since both are compared to Adobe Photoshop?

    Hmm… I’m not sure I would ever compare ArtRage to Photoshop. Two very different animals. Clip Studio i’ve never used.
    But as they all allow you to “paint” then some overlap of features is inevitable I suppose.

    ArtRage’s prime objective was/is to emulate traditional painting media like Oils, Watercolours, etc… in the digital environment and do it in a very user friendly way. In this I think it has succeeded admirably so far and will continue to do so.

    Many people now seem to want one program to do all things. Coming from the “traditional” world of working by hand I’m a big fan of using specific tools for specific requirements and view the digital world in very much the same way. Use each program for what it’s really good at, if it gives you what you need.
    They are all just our “tools” to fashion our ideas into the art we want to make.

    Clip Studio is a graphics suite from Celsys in Japan. Clip Studio paint is or was known as Manga Studio outside of Japan, and also emulates traditional painting media like oils, watercolours, etc. in a digital environment.

    For the past few days, I have been working Clip Studio Paint in making 3D Comics, but have used some of the skills I have learned from ArtRage. Though I am still new at drawing and painting by hand, it seems (to me) that most features of ArtRage are a subset in Clip Studio Paint.

    Thanks for your input.
