How to create your first illustration in Clip Studio Paint

By Wacom |
Wacom teamed up Celsys, creators of Clip Studio Paint, to give you an insider’s view of manga comic creation from start to finish in this five-part video tutorial series. These videos are great for beginners who need help getting started, but the tutorial also works for a more advanced artist who wants to improve their comic drawing skills.

In this second part of the series, Caterina Rocchi – the principle of Lucca Manga School in Italy — will use Clip Studio Paint to demonstrate how to create an illustration, going from a basic sketch to a finished illustration in full color. She will also explain several different coloring styles and how to do them using the program. So, let´s get ready!
