:bulletpurple: This is a given, but do please follow the regulations and ToS of deviantART; you can find the Help and FAQ here and the Terms of Service here
:bulletpurple: This is a given as well, but please be nice, polite and respectful to each other; the last thing we want is a heated argument

:bulletpurple: I have the right to add more rules if it's needed


Submission Rules and Guidelines

:bulletpink: Works that can be submitted here were either done with CSP alone or at least 50% of them. Mention in the Description or the Tags that you used Clip Studio Paint for the drawing you want to submit.
:bulletpink: Please do not submit deviations that do not belong to you; refer to FAQ #8, FAQ #304 and FAQ #572
:bulletpink: Please submit your deviations to the correct folders. If you're not sure where to submit it feel free to contact the Group Admins via a Note and we we'll help.
:bulletpink: The 'Mature' folder can be used to deviations containing mature contents, but please keep in mind that you are not allowed to submit any pornographic works; refer to FAQ #565
:bulletpink: If your artwork got declined, please do not take it personally and get sad or angry. We will try and notify you about the mistake so you can resubmit you're art as soon as possible.
:bulletpink: There is no limit on uploading your drawings to the Group but keep in mind that we (the Admins) have to look at every single peace and accept it so it may take a while.
:bulletpink: If you have questions feel free to send a note to the group.


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. :)
Hey guys how are ya doin? :)

So this is a more of personal entry and has nothing to do the official Staff of CSP or their company!
I just wanted to announce here too that I'm going to make a Stream soon, maybe at the End of March or somewhere in April.

I just recently got myself a microphone so that I'll be able to make some voice-overs for drawing videos and CSP tutorials.
The Theme is simply going to be just me testing my mic + CLIP STUDIO PAINT cause I thought it'd be nice to talk about some tricks and answer some questions! :)

So if you have any questions regarding CSP feel free to comment them down below and I'll answer them in the stream (you can also ask about other things) ♥
You can also suggest where you want to watch the stream: Twitch, Picarto, Youtube or Facebook.

As soon as I know when I'll have time for the stream I'll announce in a journal entry on my private account! :) (if you want I can also tag you so that you don't miss it, just mention it in your comment! you don't have to give me a watch or anything) ♥

As said, I usually don't want to post such personal stuff but I noticed that some people do have questions and maybe seeing it live would be helpful. If you want me to announce such things in the future too just let me know.

No Preview
 I've been using clip studio paint and I tried to submit on my but for some reason the preview wouldn't show, is there a way how you can make it show because I might be unable to submit the full artwork in the future, pls anyone help 
Katarina-Kirishiki Featured By Owner Dec 22, 2018  Hobbyist General Artist
thats because dA can't see what the .clip file looks like. The preview image always has to be a .jpeg or .png or just a normal image file!
if you upload your art use one of this types: .jpg, .png
