For those who like to draw characters

The biggest trouble is after drawing the characters

I don’t know what to add to the entire blank background to make the whole picture look good.

Some people don’t know how to draw backgrounds

Some people can draw backgrounds, but their drawings are not as good as the characters.

Many people may just leave it alone without drawing the background...

The production principle of poster style illustrations

If you pay attention to many poster designs around you, or movie posters, you will find that many poster designs do not actually pay attention to perspective. This is why I say that making poster-style illustrations can save you the pain of drawing the background! So what does poster design generally focus on? It’s actually typesetting!

What exactly is typesetting doing?

Generally speaking, when we talk about typesetting, we think that we are editing magazines and books, but we are also designing posters for paper products. We can also say that it is typesetting, but what exactly is typesetting? If it is a general book, we will arrange the text and supporting pictures; if it is a poster, we will arrange the title or text, and photos or illustrations. For poster-style illustrations, the only main types of layout that need to be done are character illustrations and text! So we can now open Clip studio paint for editing and typesetting!

The text tools of Clip Studio Paint are very simple, and the functional area is as shown in the picture above. It is very easy to find and there are not too many complicated things, so it will be very convenient for you to edit text!

3 super simple layout techniques!

In fact, the field of poster design really requires in-depth study, and it has its own specialties. However, for those who just want to be relaxed, time-saving, and simply enrich the picture, unless you really consider specializing in this field, there is actually no need. Especially in-depth study of poster design. In addition, there are infinite forms of typography, and it is endless to learn. So in fact, as long as you learn a few skills and know how to draw inferences from one example, you will find the effects you can achieve. It can become infinite! So here we share with you three simple and quick poster layout techniques so that you can use them right away!

Add border: image and text + border

Adding a border is really a very versatile method. In addition, adding a little text in a relatively empty space next to the border will make the whole picture look more informative and rich! If you like lace, in addition to looking for related border materials in Clip studio assets, you can also design some patterns you like. But if you are an extremely lazy person, you can consider using a very simple style like the example. Use wind lines as borders, and you can even make some border templates directly. You can apply them directly to any pictures you draw in the future, which is very convenient!

Geometric typesetting: graphics + geometric blocks

The geometric blocks here are all in the form of relatively large color blocks, adding a rich feeling to the picture, so it is very suitable for illustrations that only draw simple characters and the background is empty! Simply putting a large color block may still be boring, so if you can add a large title to the color block or the blank space in the background, the picture will be much richer, and it will also look like a poster!

Geometric objects: pictures and text + geometric objects

This method may seem a little more complicated and difficult than the previous two methods, but I have to say that the overall poster effect is the best! The picture will also be much prettier! In fact, this technique is to frame the characters with geometric shapes, and then add some geometric shapes as embellishments in other blank spaces, and add titles, subtitles, and some decorative text. When arranging, you can appropriately tilt it in some places. , creating a little irregular appearance will also make people feel that the poster is a little lively!
