Benefits and struggles of Paintool SAI

Pros

Great variety of tools and modifiers to each allows you to customize your brushes, erasers, etc to your liking. Paintool SAI has a more lightweight feel compared to other painting softwares, allowing you to have a more fluid workflow

Cons

Lacks the variety of tools other softwares in the industry have. Its interface looks a little outdated, despite its tools being a good match against other softwares.

Reasons for switching to PaintTool SAI

Its one-time payment makes it a lot more affordable than the industry standard

An Introductory Software

I learned so much using this program, and it worked well with multiple drawing peripherals. But at it's current price point, I cannot recommend it over other options.

Pros

The basic tools in SAI are intuitive and easy to use out of the box. It is a great way to learn the basics of digital art.

Cons

The software has some clever tools and features, but isn't as robust as a program like Clip Studio Paint. Anymore, I'd recommend GIMP as an introductory software. GIMP's open source model really broadens the capabilities and versatility of an ever changing art scape.
