With built-in print-ready screentones, perspective rulers, word balloons, and even integrated 3D models, this software helps streamline the digital artist's workflow with incredible tools.
In this course, we'll cover the aspects of page creation, page management, and text creation. Starting off, we'll learn how to make custom paper sizes and page templates by creating some standard American comic book pages. We will also learn how to use the Page Manager to create files with multiple pages within it. After this, we'll teach you about creating comic panels and customizing them to meet the needs of their story. This course will also provide a comprehensive lesson on using several ways of adding text and word balloons to a comic story. We'll learn how to use Clip Studio Paint Pro's Page Manager to rearrange and delete pages within a story. Finally, we'll see how to export our illustrations for print and the web.
