April 6, 2018

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

Using a previously inked illustration, in this lesson Caterina demonstrates how to use different brushes to achieve a matte-like effect.

6) Coloring variations: Watercolor

This lesson explains how to use tools in Clip Studio Paint to achieve a watercolor-like painting style.

A magical midnight forest... 🌲🌙🦉🎨🖌️⁣
That's what @yingshiart was conjuring in this amazing piece #MadeWithWacom. Tayler loves using color to evoke emotion and fullness in her paintings, and liberally uses adjustment layers, filters, and gradient maps. She trusts the creative process and lets go, allowing the subconscious to put one hand on the wheel instead of micromanaging every detail. ⁣
