Clip Studio Paint Download Latest Version for Windows 10, 8, 7. This application is perfect for those of you who like manga (comics originating from Japan), it turns out that there are digital tools to produce these works. But there is other hardware that (maybe) is needed to support this software. One of them is a digital pen or pencil with its partner a digital canvas. It’s optional, we can also use the mouse.
This software was also known as Manga Studio. But rebranded so that it becomes what it is now. Software capable of creating digital works in the form of comics, illustrations, to 2-dimensional animation. It is certain that the features offered by this software will be of interest to the animators out there.
The basic things we should know when using Clip Studio Paint are:
- Pen Brush.
The Pen Brush consists of G-Pen, Mapping Pen, Turnip Pen, Caligraphy, For Effect Lines, and a textured Pen. You can change the pen size in the brush size section from 0.5 px to 1000 px.If when you first install Manga Studio or Clip Studio Paint, then you see that your pen doesn’t look smooth or looks jagged. Then the thing you have to do to fix it is by selecting Anti-aliasing to the far right.
Usually, I use it for a very smooth and neat pen texture, but you can use the second or third option according to your taste. Later the appearance of the pen (preview above the brush size) will also change according to the Anti-aliasing option you chose.
- Marquee Tool.
This tool is useful for selecting certain areas to make it easier for us to color or change. I prefer to use the selection pen and the clear selection pen because the selection method is like using a brush and is more accurate and fast too.
- Text and Balloon Tool.
This feature is very important for those of you who want to add text to your work in Manga Studio or Clip Studio Paint. This feature is very useful for those of you who are making digital comics because you can draw conversation balloons as you like.Ellipse balloon to add a conversation balloon that is in the shape of a perfect circle, while the curve balloon is to add a conversation balloon that is shaped according to taste even though it is still curved.
While the balloon tail functions to make the conversation tail with an upright shape. And thought balloon tail for speech balloon tails for characters who are talking in their hearts.
- Layer Menu.
The Manga Studio/Clip Studio Paint layer menu has various functions that can be used as a tool to simplify the drawing process in this software.
- Combine mode (1) functions to add various modes to the image you have created such as light mode, multiply, difference, and so on.
- Clipping mask (2) can be used so that the clipped layer can follow the selection on the previous layer. For example, we color the skin on layer 1, then we clip it on layer 2 to add a shade so that the shade follows the area on the base color on layer 1.
- Opacity (3) serves to disguise or reduce the brightness of the image or lineart on a layer. I often use this to smooth out lineart color fidelity or for tracing images.
- New Raster Layer (4) to add a new layer whose result will be a raster. If you enlarge and reduce the image, the quality of the image will change.
- New Vector Layer (5) is the opposite of the raster layer. Your work will be in the form of a vector and the object can be enlarged and reduced freely.
- New Layer Folder (6) is useful for creating a new folder in the form of a collection of layers so that they are not mixed and easy to edit. For example, the eye folder which consists of layers containing eyeballs, eyeshades, eye sparkles.
