Thumbs up Should I use a windows emulator for digital art software or find a Linux replacement?


I couldn't figure out if I should find a way to get Clip Studio Paint to work in an emulator for my digital art or find a replacement. More research into it led me to the decision that I will use both Krita and, if possible, Clip Studio Paint. I have only seen that older versions of the program are stable to use on Linux but that is fine with me. With all of that I am now in a comfortable position to completely switch to Linux!

Tealthecolor, welcome. Why don't you tell us what you found with your research and what you decided to do in the end? It could well be of interest to others.

Thank you! That's a good idea and I never would have thought of that. I will be more careful in the future.

Thanks for the info, Tealthecolor! Glad to hear that you've been able to completely switch - you're one step ahead of me. :-) Let us know if you have any problems or questions.

I don't think anything can top Clip Paint Studio in image size and perspective tools. MyPaint (custom color gamut masks/scratchpad), Gimp, and Krita are nice. I'm still waiting for something that allows me to do raster images of 50,000 by 50,000 pixels like Clip Paint Studio without breaking a sweat. Its sweet having a big page to draw in without worrying about edges.

Its a work in progress in wine. 1.4.1 supposedly works pretty good in wine. You'd have to use winetricks/playonlinux to set up probably.
