Compatible with Clip Studio Paint Ver. 1.9.14
 Solid black fill and Tone
■1. Filling in with solid black
I continue by filling in solid black to the areas I want them to be.
(1) Using the [Object] tool I fill in areas with solid black.
(2) I click [New Raster Layer] from the [Layer] palette to make a new layer for the solid black fill. I change its name to “Fill”.
(3) Select [Fill] from the [Tool] palette then, select [Refer other layers] from the [Sub Tool] palette.
(4) Click on the bottom left of the [Color Wheel] palette's color field to set the drawing color to black.
(5) Click on the enclosed areas you want to color to fill them with solid black.
■2. Applying tone
I will use tone to express both the intermediate color and the shadows.
Just like when inking, you can work on one frame at a time, but this time we will work on four frames at once.
First, I’ll apply tone to the main character’s feet and umbrella.
(1) In order to work on all four frames at once, I click on the “Draft” layer in the [Layer] palette.
(2) Select the [Auto select] tool from the [Tool] palette then, select [Refer to all layers] from the [Sub Tool] palette.
(3) Click on the inside of the drawing's lines you wish to apply with tone.
(4) This creates a selection area by following along the black lines.
(5) Click [New Tone] from the [Selection Launcher] view that appears under the selection.
(6) The [Simple tone settings] dialog box is displayed. With this dialog box, you can set the number of screen frequency (tone dot size) and density. I set the number of screen frequency to [60.0] and the density to % and click OK.
(7) Tone is applied to the selected area.
“Fill 1” has been added to the [Layer] palette and a layer mask has been created in the shape of the selection.
(8) Tone is also applied to the other frames by selecting the [Fill] tool and clicking the other areas on the canvas you want to apply tone. Using this method, you can easily add more of the same tone to other areas.
Note: Adding screentones on the smartphone version
To paste screentones on smartphones in the same way as on the PC or tablet versions, we recommend customizing the Selection Launcher settings.
(1) The Selection Launcher can be displayed from [View] Menu > [Selection Launcher].
(2) To add a command to it, select [Layer] > [New Layer] > [Tone] and tap [Add].
Note: Be sure to select the Tone’s [Layer Mask].
If you go to apply tone to an area and the cursor displays cannot edit mark (red stop icon), select the [Layer mask] on top of the [Layer] palette.
For more information about applying tone, refer to the following article.
I will apply the same tone to all of the frames.
■3. Apply shadow with tone
Without being affected by the line drawing, I freely draw shapes to add tone to.
(1) Select the [Selection] tool from the [Tool] palette then, select the [Lasso] tool from the [Sub Tool] palette.
(2) Using the [Lasso] tool, click and drag to draw the general shape where you want the tone to be and when you let go, tone is applied inside the shape.
(3) Click [New Tone] from the [Selection Launcher].
(4) In the [Simple tone settings] dialog box, set the number of screen frequency to [60.0] and density to % and click [OK].
(5) Tone is applied to the selected area. “Fill 2” has been added to the [Layer] palette.
(6) Erase any out of place tone with the [Eraser] tool.
(7) If you erase too much, add tone back by using the [Pen] tool, etc.
The shadow tones are complete.
■4. Applying pattern tone
I will apply monotone patterned tone from the [Material] palette.
(1) Using the [Auto select] tool, I select the areas I wish to apply tone and click on the inside of the area to create a selection.
(2) Open the [Cross-hatching] folder from [Monotone pattern] in the [Material] palette.
(3) Select “Cross-hatching x1” from the displayed materials then, click the [Paste material].
(4) The tone was applied to the selection. “Cross-hatching x1” has been added to the [Layer] palette and a layer mask has been created in the shape of the selection.
(5) Tone is also applied to the other frames by selecting the [Fill] tool and clicking the other areas you wish to apply tone.
Tone has now been applied to each frame!
 Insert a Effect line
Manga adds effect lines to give a sense of presence in the images.
Some examples of effect lines are saturated lines, speed lines, etc. There are various ways to draw effect lines but this time we will use the [Saturated line] tool to draw saturated lines.
(1) Click the inside of the frame you wish to edit using the [Object] tool.
(2) Select the [Figure] tool from the [Tool] palette then, select [Scattered saturated line] from the [Saturated line] sub tool group in the [Sub Tool] palette.
(3) Click where you want the center of the saturated lines to be created from and drag into a circle. A preview of this circle will be displayed.
(4) Upon letting go, saturated lines will be created in the area which isn’t enclosed in the circle.
“Scattered saturated line” is added to the [Layer] palette.
Now, all of the comic’s images are complete! Next, I’ll add the speech and speech bubbles.
