Time saving fur & knit




Hello! This is Metosoi!

This time I will explain how to easily draw fur and knitwear for winter!


There are various types of fur, including long hair and short hair.

This time

・Boa fabric




This is a simple explanation.

boa fabric

Boa refers to fabric with short pile and brushed finish.



① Divide the shadow area

② Blur the edges with a semi-transparent brush

Trace the border between shadow and light with a brush to blur the border. You can see the surface changing softly.


The brushes I used are below.

Included in the default airbrush tools.

③ Add hair to the border

Use a thin, thin brush with a dropper of the shade color.

Included in the default Pencil tool.

By using a brush that is not too hard, you can create fine clumps of hair.

Add short hairs to the softened border. Make short strokes while paying attention to the direction of the surface.


The trick is to always stand back from the screen and check to make sure there are no unnecessary drawings.


The procedure is the same as for the boa fabric above, but there are some points to keep in mind.

  • Brush hardness

  • hair length

Increase the hardness of the soft pencil from earlier to express the long hair strands.



Compared to boa fabric, which is almost pointillist-like, long hair strands can be expressed by leaving a few strokes.

①Draw a sphere

Roughly draw around the shadow of the sphere.

② Add wool with a hard, thin brush

I used a hard pencil.

Included in the default Pencil tool.


Make the brush size as thin as a single piece of wool.



Add hair only to the border, keeping in mind that the wool is moving outward from the center.


Again, try to avoid unnecessary textures as much as possible.

If you pay attention to the sphere, you will notice that there are several yarns pointing towards you.


This can be expressed by creating a small shaded area and placing the brush dotted around it.

Separately, if there is no excess or deficiency, it is complete.


This illustration is mostly a bonus, but I'll also explain how to draw feathers because it can be applied to clothes.

① Separate boundaries

Separate the borders as you did for the boa and fur.

② Add feathers with a rough and thick brush

Here is the brush I used.

Included in the default Pencil tool.

Feathers are clumps of fine hair.

Unless it's a close-up illustration, I'll keep this level of detail.

By adding more blue to the soft border created by drawing, you can depict how the white feathers reflect the light of the sky.


It's hard to understand knits unless you draw the mesh, but it takes time to draw, so I make a brush.

Here we explain how to create a new brush, but the brushes used for this illustration can be downloaded, so if you know how to create brushes or are too lazy to make your own, please download from here!

① Make a brush

Let's prepare a tip image like this and create a brush.

Edit>Register material>Image material


Check Use as brush tip image in the material property menu.

Select the save destination file and press OK to complete the save.



If you have not created a save destination file,


Open the material window from

When the material window opens, select the icon with a + next to the file at the bottom left to create a new folder.

After saving the material, create a knit brush by customizing "Tyrolean Tape" from Clip Studio's default brushes.


Sub tools>Clothing

It can be accessed from.

Duplicate the Tyrolean tape brush from the sub tool duplication.

Select the spanner mark at the bottom right of the tool property.

Delete the image material used for the brush from the "Brush tip" item in the displayed sub tool details menu.

The image below shows the deleted state.

Click on the part where the tip shape was displayed and add the knit tip image you created.

Let's change the name of the completed brush material to make it easier to understand.

Right-click the brush and change the name from the sub tool settings.

As it is, the default setting is still Tyrolean tape, so if something goes wrong with the brush, if you return to the default setting, it will return to Tyrolean tape instead of knit brush.

To prevent this from happening, register it in the initial settings.

Click the three-line icon at the top left of the tool property to register it to the initial settings.

Once the initial settings have been registered, the knit brush is complete.

②Draw a mesh

Draw the mesh of the knit using the brush you created earlier.


Draw it while imagining the muffler wrapped around the neck.


Thanks to making a brush, I no longer have to draw each mesh one by one (;´・ω・)

At the end
