The "Border" frame border folder contains the layers on which the character and background of Frame 4 have been drawn. Create a layer for coloring in the [Frame Border folder] and color the frame.
Coloring the Character in Frame 4
1 Select the "Characters 2" layer in the "Border" folder on the [Layer] palette and click [New Raster Layer].
Change the layer name of the created layer to "Skin 2".
2 Drag the "Skin 2" layer so that it is immediately below the "Characters 2" layer.
·The "Characters 2" layer contains the main lines. Moving the “Layer 1" layer immediately below the "Characters 2" layer ensures that the content added with the [Fill] tool and [Pen] tool does not cover the line drawing.
· Move any layers by hovering the mouse cursor over the grip on the right side of the layer and move it when using the iPad version. For details, please refer to “Try Drawing an Illustration in CLIP STUDIO PAINT Basic Guide” → “Drawing the Fine Details” → “Tips: When unable to move layers on the iPad”. Please refer to these.
