Brush settings

I will introduce the brush settings I use for illustrations.

I build up several layers of thin color using an “airbrush” for the character and a “dry brush” for backgrounds and objects.


Airbrush (エアブラシ)

This a simple brush without any textures or starting/ending effects.

Like a real airbrush, it has a strong blur when used at a large size with a low opacity. When used at a smaller size with a higher opacity, it appears sharper.

Color Mixer (色混ぜ)

I use this brush when I want to blend the colors more than the "Airbrush".

This is a customized version of the following brush that I downloaded from CLIP STUDIO ASSETS.

A texture is set to this brush, so it leaves a brush-like texture when it blends the colors.


Dry Brush (ドライブラシ)

This “Dry Brush" is the above “Airbrush” with a texture added.

I use this when I want to add a realistic texture to walls in the background and so on.

Fill Pen_QM (ベタ塗りペン_QM)

“Fill Pen _QM" is a brush that I use mainly to draw outlines on each layer before blocking in the colors.

Other brushes

I also use the following brushes when painting the background.

▼ I use this “Sponge PH” brush (スポンジPH) when I want to create a strong texture

▼ I use the “Wet Sponge PH” brush (もくもくスポンジPH) to create a softer feeling than the “Dry Brush”.
