[1] Pen settings

I’ll add some more details to solidify my concept.


I want to draw freely on top of the rough sketch, so I don’t change the layer or add new layers.

Up to now I’ve been using the [G-pen] sub tool, but I’ll switch to the [Textured pen] sub tool, also under the [Pen] tool.


I turned [Anti-aliasing] off and set [Stabilization] to zero.


[2]Adjusting the overall composition

I’m going to add some variation to the shapes by adding thick lines in places.


Unlike the [G-pen], the [Textured pen] has a rough and interesting texture.

It looks a bit more traditional and responds well to pen pressure to add some individuality to the lines.

I repeatedly draw the lines and shave them off with white.

I don’t use the [Eraser] tool, but instead use the [Eyedropper] tool to pick up the white color of the canvas, then change the drawing color to white and shave off parts of the black lines.


HINT:

In Clip Studio Paint, you can hold down the Option key on Mac or the Alt key on Windows to temporarily switch to the [Eyedropper] tool.


Then when I draw the black lines, I pick up the black color from the canvas and draw with that.


This creates a rough effect and allows me to draw quickly and intuitively.

Now I’ve finished adjusting the shapes.


[3] Drawing the details

In this next stage, I’ll draw in some detailed lines while making slight adjustments to the shapes.


I use the [G-pen] again and set stabilization to zero like I did in part one.


In the [Tool Property] palette, I go to [Brush Size] and click the [Effect source settings] button to open the dialog box.

Here, I check the box for [Random] to randomize the brush size and create rough-looking strokes.


I check that this setting creates a natural effect, then decide to use this.

In this next stage I’m going to draw and shave the lines repeatedly again. As I mentioned in part one, I think this shaved effect adds a unique flavor to the illustration.


I draw the lines roughly like I did with the [Textured pen].

I love this effect because it looks like ink on paper.


I also paint the black fill areas with the [G-pen] and shave them off a little.


By drawing with a lot of energy and shaving parts of the lines off, I can create an effect like a real paint brush.


Now I’ve finished the line art.


In the next part, I’ll explain how I add the colors.
