"The new cel animation features in Clip Studio Paint are surprisingly easy! I was able to grasp the capabilities rapidly despite never doing much in animation before. It’s a great addition to an already great product.” ~ PJ Holden, comic artist and contributor to British sci-fi comic 2000AD, with drawings such as Judge Dredd, Rogue Trooper and many others.
