This is a class about the ultimate digital drawing and painting tool -- Clip Studio Paint (1.6.2), formerly Manga Studio 5.
Have a need to draw scenes including complex figure posing? How about a need to draw accurate hands?
In this course I'll show you how to use one or more pose-able 3D drawing models to either draw over or set to the side as references. We'll even look at zooming in on hands which are always difficult to draw well.
What about the actual sketching of your figure?
In the next lecture I'll show you how to make crude sketches based on the 3D pose-able figures you previously positioned in your scene.
What about inking?
In the final lecture I'll demonstrate inking your sketch using smooth vector lines that can be contoured, shaped and moved to your liking until you accurately portray the sketch beneath.
Learn to use Clip Studio Paint (formerly Manga Studio 5) to produce stunning figure drawings.
I'll see you in the classroom,
Born in Los Angeles, California, in the middle of the last century, I have always wanted to be a writer. After twenty-five some odd years spent working in the computer industry in the heart of the Silicon Valley, first for Lockheed as a Systems Programmer and later for Cisco Systems as a test tool developer, I managed to retire early and begin my next career as a self-published author.
Along with writing and publishing my own novels I also publish the works of my wife, Melanie Jackson. During the past four years I’ve published well over 100 books in paperback and eBook formats. Oddly enough this includes eBooks on how to self-publish books and how to create professional looking book covers using the GIMP. I’ve also recorded and distributed a pair of audiobooks available for purchase on Amazon and Audible. Finally, I spend a portion of my time maintaining both my website and my wife’s website, which was developed using WordPress.
My latest endeavor, begun in July of 2014, is to record training courses for distribution via Udemy. My goal is to provide low cost high quality screen cast based educational material focusing on my area of expertise; namely, self-publishing and book cover design using the GIMP. As time permits, I plan to expand my catalog to cover Web page development and Udemy course preparation.
I currently live in the beautiful California wine country with my lovely wife, published author Melanie Jackson, and Butterscotch the cat.
