idk whats the difference honestly, but clip paint is a state of art package (native 64 bit, 50k px dimensions for documents, 2k max brush size)
but the interface is quite ugly and it's Japanese only right now.
compared to painter it's also super fast, with better blending and you literally have pressure curves EVERYWHERE, for any mappable brush parameter, so awesome
I'm still curious about differences between CPL and illuststudio, but I really love that they made a mac version of CPL too.
if anyone here has a good handle of Japanese and has some spare time, I'd be really thankful for explaining differences between two.

The brush engine feels pretty similar though.
I never tried illuststudio myself, just seen trailers and promo stuff, so don't really know how it has more focus on painting than CPL. CPL is more complex and more sufficient for painting than sai already.
and yeah, I've been under impression they pushed IS back as well, but CPL is really more or less the same to me tbh, hoping for a proper Englsh release sometime.
(by the way, do you have any idea if it's possible to create custom brush dabs in either IS or CPL? it was a pain in sai and I never figured it out myself :(( )
