Why I Stopped Using Photoshop

Spilling the tea on why I stopped using Adobe Photoshop as my main art software AND why I now use Clip Studio Paint. Apologies for the weird editing—I paused a lot while talking...I’m improving a lot!


NOTE: I forgot to mention that Photoshop recently added line stabilization but it's still not as good as Clip Studio's. //
