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!

1) The process of creating an illustration.

This video will demonstrate how to create an illustration on Clip Studio Paint from sketching to coloring.

2) Creating a new canvas, drafts and sketches

In this lesson, Caterina shows how to set up Clip Studio paint to create a canvas, start a sketch and then edit it until you are satisfied.

3) Inking

This part demonstrates how to add line art to a sketch, changing the brush settings and using different layers.

4) Colouring basics: Basic anime-style painting

In this video, Caterina explains how to color the illustration in a basic anime-style.

5) Coloring variations: Matte
