CSP is really remarkable for inking and coloring my works!

Monica Galentino (Italy)

CSP is a fantastic digital painting software with a powerful brush customization system and color palette management. It is so easy to create and personalize tools with lots of options for shading, blurring, smoothing and texturing, like the most famous programs of the same type, but with a so tiny price!

Melanie Schober (Austria)

I absolutely adore the natural feeling while coloring in CSP! Blending colors is so easy, just like real brushes on real paper. Also I got very quick in filling lineart with the bucket tool. Close gap is a VERY nice feature.

CLP is the best in lineart and your tools are fun for coloring.
