DRAW a romantic scene with the 3D Figures


Hi! In this article I will teach you how to draw with 3D poses in Clip Studio PAINT, achieving a romantic scene between 2 characters.

I'm going to show you how simple it can be to draw good poses for our characters using Clip Studio Paint's 3D Figures, even more so, with poses that you can download for free and use however you want.

What we will do:

You can see all this and more below:

Remember to activate the subtitles in your language, you will surely find it :)
If not, leave me a comment with the language you speak and I will gladly add it;)

What do you think about the video?
We saw in detail how to achieve a great illustration with the help of 3D Figures.

Step by step to know how to Draw with 3D poses in Clip Studio PAINT

Now, I want us to go through all the steps so that you understand it even better, let's get to it:

1. Project creation

File - New, in Type of Work we choose Illustration and in Canvas we leave it in 4,000 x 4,000 pixels, in 600 resolution.

2. 3D materials

We activate the option of Materials (3D) on the right side.

We go to Body Type where we can take and drag both the female and male body.

We take the 3D Figures by dragging them to the project

With the Operation tool in Object Sub-tool, when you click on one of the 3D Figures at the bottom, arrows appear where we can move them.

3. 3D sizes and shapes

At the bottom when selecting a 3D Figure we have the last option called: Sub-tool detail, where we can edit the shape of the body, we do that in: Body Shape, we can edit the height and proportion of the body.

4. Creation of the 3D poses

With the Operation tool, in the Object sub-tool, when we click on one of the 3D models we can move and rotate them, with the axes that appear at the bottom, the entire 3D Figure moves.

With the same Operation tool in Object Sub-tool we can click on any part of the body and start creating a pose.

With the first 3 options that appear that correspond to the camera, we can find the best angle for our scene:

- The first option is to rotate the camera.
- The second option is camera shake.
- The third option is to zoom in or out. (Zoom in and Zoom out)

5. Use already created poses

In the Assets page of Clip Studio PAINT you find a lot of resources and 3D poses are no exception, for the same reason I share the ones that I used in this TIP.


Thanks to the person who created these poses and many more :)


Continuing with the tutorial and after downloading the poses we take one of them leaving them on the male and female body.

With the camera tools you can find a better angle for your drawing.

6. Edit the light source of the 3D Figures

With the Object sub-tool Operation tool we select one of the 3D Figures and go to the last option at the bottom, called Sub-tool Detail and go to Light Source.

And in the 3D sphere we can edit the location of the light source.

We can also deactivate the Apply Light Source option making the 3D Figures look like this, in my case I will leave them with shadow.

7. Hand poses

By clicking with the Operation tool in the hand of one of the 3D Figures and if we go to the Sub-Tool Detail option in the Pose menu, we can configure a pose for the hand, with the hand open or closed.

8. Drawing based on a 3D Figure

Now we will start to draw, the raster layer that comes by default when creating the project we take it and leave it above the 3D layer, to which we lower the opacity to 50% or 25% to be able to draw on it more comfortable.

We change the name of the raster layer to STRUCTURE and with the pencil tool we are going to draw the outline of the pose, with a red color.

Then in a new layer we can make the layers of the sketch, adding the details of our characters, in my case, they are the protagonists of an Animation that I am creating which is located in the Italian Renaissance.

To later do the inking process.

And the next step is to add the base colors:

And the shadows of the characters:

And in a simple way we add a background, which Clip Studio Paint brings, in addition to adding lights and shadows to our illustration.

9. Final Illustration

To finally use the Gradient Maps achieving the following result:

I hope this article has been very useful to you.

I leave you a greeting, that you are very well and see you in the next TIP :)
