Paint Tool Sai: Your go to program for digital drawing

By Gfx Syne

On Thursday, January 7, 2016

Paint Tool Sai is a simple, fast and user friendly drawing tool that is quite popular among digital artists especially those that are into drawing manga and animes. It is fairly compact and is not too expensive. As opposed to image editing programs like Photoshop or vector images programs like Illustrator, Paint Tool Sai is not only easy to use but it is especially amazing for line drawings. Paint Tool Sai is more for digital artists looking to create vector line drawings with clean and smooth strokes, paint their drawings, and fill line drawings with color. It’s a lot more easy to use than other programs but it may become exhaustive if artists are looking for more features. A plus point for Paint Tool Sai is that it can be used with graphic tablets such as Wacom easily. It is fairly lightweight as compared to other programs and works faster.
