Searching for new software
Hi, I've been into digital art for a few years now, started off using Sketchbook Pro, moved on to photoshop and manga studio, and now I'm using Clip Studio Paint. I really liked manga studio as my goal is to make comic books, however that program is no longer available and has been replaced with Clip Studio Paint. I figured it would be a good program as it is basically just an update on MS, however the program itself has been giving me a lot of trouble. It was really expensive (and I got the paired down version) and it constantly has massive lag, it freezes, and oftentimes crashes, leaving me with lost work. There have been plenty of other issues as well. I'm running it on a pc with windows attached to a wacom cintiq, both of which work fine. The cintiq is brandnew and the computer has just been rebuilt and has plenty of processing power and whatever.
Does anyone have any suggestions on programs I can use for this sort of thing? I didn't really like photoshop all that much, and adobe suite was also super expensive. Sketchbook Pro is fun but it doesn't give me nice, crisp, professional-looking lines. CSP really seems like the most popular, and I'm still trying to troubleshoot to see if the issues can be solved, but I really want to get to work and draw. All of these issues make it incredibly difficult to finish any good work.
Thanks in advance,
