Adjust your pens and brushes to produce the line quality you desire





Let's adjust the pen pressure and brush settings to draw the kinds of lines you prefer with Clip Studio Paint.


The initial settings are ready-made to draw with as they are, but by adjusting your pens and brushes, you can find the settings that suit you best. Since pen pressure and touch preferences vary from person to person, it is a good idea to adjust them several times until you are completely satisfied.
