Clip Studio Paint PRO/EX

I’ve used Clip Studio Paint since 2017, and before that, I used Adobe Photoshop to create my anime drawings. I can only say that I have not found a better art software to draw anime art. I just haven’t. Procreate is probably the next best thing (though it’s only available for iPad) when it comes to drawing anime art. Otherwise, it’s Clip Studio Paint, and that’s it.


Copywriting, blogging, digital product descriptions, emails, etc., are just a few of the use cases where I use Grammarly. Grammarly is one of those tools I use daily and couldn’t do my online business without. I like how it suggests corrections and improves the overall sentence structure. Even though you feel like you wouldn’t write anything and art is your main thing. I can only say that I use Grammarly even for YouTube descriptions. So yeah, it’s a must tool.


For the longest time, I used Google Docs, Google Sheets, Google Slides, and whatnot to manage my online business, as well as YouTube scripts, content creation, and art ideas. Thankfully, I stumbled upon Notion, and at first, I was a bit confused about it, but slowly and steadily, it’s become an irreplaceable tool to run my creative online business and even my art creation. Notion is hands-down the best small creative business management tool ever created.
