Popular art sharing site also launches English-language Twitter account

This week, the Japanese art site launched an official English-language Twitter account and an English-language encyclopedia, which explains some of the characters and memes that often appear on the site. The encyclopedia is user-edited, allowing English-speaking browsers of the pixiv site to contribute. The entries also feature artwork from the site's users.

The encyclopedia features an English-language version of the Japanese version's tool ranking, whose top ten results are as follows:

  1. Photoshop
  2. PaintTool Sai
  3. IllustStudio
  4. Mechanical Pencils
  5. Pixia
  6. Pencil
  7. ComicStudio
  8. Colored Pencil
  9. The Tegaki Blog website
  10. AzPainter2

The list includes 72 entries; the ComiPo! manga-creation software is #49 on the list.
