Yups,
Rotate = R
Brush Size = ctrl+alt + drag your stylus
but I believe you can set any key binding you want.


I hope we can change the rotation key, pressing R is not very practical but glad they implemented live brush resize. If SAI doesn't get updated I'll probably move on to this. The inking pen response on the videos seems to be on par with SAI and with a perpective tool it couldn't possibly be more practical.


Yeah the selection tools in IllustStudio were the first thing that trully impressed me, it's like these guys came from the future and are showing us how programs will be like.

paint tool sai still has a lead on this in one aspect, i think- the  lineart layer..Either i can't get a hang of the line tools, or sai's tracing system is easier and more effective..

I need a lot of time to get to know it- its way more complex than sai.

Still this application outweights sai in features,gui customisation,and some other things..

From the future? More like picking out the best from the past, looks familiar? MS EX4 ^^

Yes they picked some of the past and added some of the future ;)


Anyone managed to load 3D objects? The Open box is always grayed out even after I open a new 3D layer.

The auto translation broke the file extensions in the open dialog, oops. :)

Anyway to hot fix it?


I haven't been able to find where or how to use the pen correction feature either, the one that mimics SAI inking layer. So far I'm liking both the brush and pen tools, both have a pressure curve that you can edit freely and also change the shape of the brush tip.

This program is really something, so many features. Better start saving for it, 'bout time someone stepped up since SAI has been in hiatus for so long.

You can buy it trough CELSYS Direct store, using a credit card, but the website forces you to enter a Japanese address. It's possible to force the registration forms, though, but I don't recommend doing that. They also sell the software boxed (it's on amazon.co.jp, but they don't ship software products outside of Japan), so your best bet would be to find someway to have a boxed version imported.

Getting an item through Belgian customs from Japan / US = paying 1/4 extra, plus they are unbelievably slow, been there done that, ...  rather just have an  online download somehow...  bleh... :<

Maybe some import store like Archonia might bother to stock some boxes if you ask them.

Email me too, curious how the 3D stuff is handled.


As for buying it, I'm just going to wait for the English version, maybe by then we have an even more solid version or maybe SAI gets updated with real features that make Illuststudio redundant.


Got it thanks! In a way it's like poser, excellent if you want to try out different angles before drawing.


Just managed to try the vector layer, doesn't seem as easy to use as the one in SAI.
