NOTE: We are not employees of Clip Studio so we don't know about upcoming sales, events etc. before the official CSP Sites post it. Please keep this in mind.

Some of the following information are from CSP's official website and other sources.

:bulletblue: What is Clip Studio Paint?
    Clip Studio Paint is a software application for Microsoft Windows and Mac OS X. It is a paint tool developed by Celsys used for the digital creation of illustrations, comics, manga and so on. It is often confused with Paint Tool SAI, but it is a different software.
    You can visit their official website here.

:bulletblue: What are PRO, EX and DEBUT?
    Those are the names of the 3 models for CSP.

:bulletblue: What is the difference between PRO, EX and DEBUT?
    PRO: Professional edition equipped with all the functions required for manga drawing
    EX: Top edition incorporating premium functions for manga drawing such as page management
    DEBUT: Basic edition complete with the standard functions for manga drawing, though it is not sold separately
    For more information and functions about the versions click here

:bulletblue: Is there a trial version?
    Yes, there is. The trial version is downloadable here. However, you cannot save your works with the trial version.

If you want to know more about Clip Studio Paint, visit their Support page. :)
Hi Everyone,
Just an update/reminder on submissions to the group.
At this point All Submissions are ACCEPTED, but only through the "SUBMISSIONS 2: ALL Clip Studio Paint Welcomed" folder. The Admins will then move submissions into appropriate Gallery categories after review. The only exception to this are submissions to the "Tutorials, tips, etc" folder, which also remain opens to everyone's submissions directly.
And remember, the group is for ANY work created using Clip Studio Paint or Manga Studio 50% or more. Any version, any portion of art.
Also each image MUST mention in the Description or the Tags that you used Clip Studio Paint or Manga Studio creating the art you submit. PLEASE Check your art to make sure you've mentioned in the Description or the Tags that it was made with CSP or MS. We don't want to remove any art from the galleries.
We use to inform people of removals but there are simply to many submissions and not enough admins so we we simple DELETE art from the galleries that do not mention Clip Studio Paint or Manga Studio in the Description and/or the Tags. So please check that your submissions are OK.
Looking to forward to seeing more art!
and all the best

Hi , can you answer a question for me? I have clip studio ex for my PC  but for some reason , I have "buy paint: in my menu. it is also giving me payment optioons , Is clip studio making me do a monthly subscription?

Do I have to do this to keep clip studio?
JuliaMersmann Featured By Owner Edited Apr 7, 2021  Professional Traditional Artist
Clipstudio has basically two kind of money: GOLD and Clippies.

You can buy GOLD with real money... it's a one-time-purchase. No monthly subscription

You can buy around 1500 Clippies for 200 Gold, but only once per month. If you have GOLD left on your account this subscription will automatically commence the other month, but if you dont have any gold it is cancelled automatically.

With Gold and Clippies you can buy materials and copyrighted stuff on "Clip Studio Assets". 
Additional brushes, 3DMaterials etc.... they come in handy at times, but they are not necessary.

Also you can earn Clippies by having a shop and selling material to the other users, so you don't have to spend money for this either.

This is a long answer to your question but: No. You don*t have to do a monthly subscription for ClipStudio. They just decided to have a kind of complicated system for their shop using two different fantasy-currencies. :-P

Where do you use it on (iPad or PC?) and where did you buy CSP from.
as far as I know you should not have to switch to a subscription plan if you have bought the program via the official website and have got a code. 
Untraceablemystic Featured By Owner Apr 15, 2020  Student Traditional Artist
I bought it from the official site and have it on PC.
