Clip Studio Paint is quickly becoming the standard software for comics, manga, and illustration! Whether you want to enhance your pen-and-paper drawings or are a digital artist already, Clip Studio Paint is the ultimate 2D drawing software on the market. 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.

About The Author

Liz Staley is a writer and artist currently living in western Pennsylvania, USA. When she isn't working on comics, she can be found watching crime shows and cartoons, reading comics and novels, or outdoors with her horse. She graduated with a bachelor's degree in media arts and animation in 2004. She has been working on her current web-published comic, Adrastus, since 2010.

She started using Manga Studio for her drawing in 2011 and hasn't looked back since. Liz was involved in Smith Micro's beta test for Manga Studio 5 soon after she started using Manga Studio 4, and she has been talking about its benefits for artists ever since.

Mastering Manga Studio 5, Packt Publishing, was her first software book, released in 2013. After a warm reception from the Manga Studio artist community, she came back to write Manga Studio EX 5 Cookbook in 2015. In addition to these two titles, she has also self-published two comic collections and a novel.
