Verified Official Expert badge for social media and blogs

- I feel I'm giving back to a community that helped me a lot when I started learning digital art, because I'm helping in improving Clip Studio Paint.

Lennybunny : Freelance artist

- Being an Official Expert allows me to have more in-depth and first-hand understanding of the software and make suggestions on how features can be improved. It also puts me in a room with other like-minded people, and it is eye opening to see differently the software can be used.

TheOneWithBear : Artist

- As an official expert I have the opportunity to follow the software updates directly from the developers and sometimes contribute with suggestions for usability improvements and new features.
The fact that there's no pressure to promote and over-sell the software on my social media keeps me wanting to contribute to the Official Expert program, recommending the product as long as I really enjoy using it.
