Drawing Tutorial Basics

I don’t know if I should call this a tutorial, because it’s more like a description/explanation of what I do and how I do it.

First, the Software.
I use Clip Studio Paint EX for the drawing, and a little Photoshop at the end for additional effects.

Some help for Clip Studio Paint:
Please see images for descriptions on the tools!

1: Basics (image)
New Canvas: my settings
Navigation Window: some useful tools

2: Layers Window

– Clipping
– New Layer
– New Group
– Merge Down
– Mask
– Delete
– Blending Mode
– Opacity
– Lock (I don’t use this one)

3: Other Useful Things (image)
– Transform
Selection: all the things I do with my selections
Correction Layers: like Adjustments Layers in Photoshop

Brushes
I only use a few brushes.
I use a brush called Lighter Pencil (bought in a pack, I don’t remember which one though) for the lineart and shading, G-Pen for flat colors and Airbrush for soft shading.

For blending colors I use Blend and Blur. Blend for color dragging and less smooth blending, and Blur for the smooth blending.
