Update: the finished article for this is now published.
I’ve been driving myself a bit mad by painting the same parrot over and over again in the different painting software I’ve got. Spoiler alert, Krita is still my favorite overall, but I was pleasantly surprised by Realistic Paint Studio.
I might re-visit Clip Studio to try out some custom brush sets as well.
I’ll be writing up my thoughts on this when I finish a few more studies because I decided to add ArtRage and Paintstorm Studio to the mix.
