  • Tip 1: Use premade 3D models for your backgrounds. Not only will this save you time, but it will also make it easier to create professional-looking backgrounds. The 3D models also come with a snap to feature for the perspective rule, and a feature to customize and save the body size for future use. This is especially helpful if you’re not confident in your drawing skills or have trouble with angles.
  • Tip 2: Use Clip Studio Paint’s camera preset angles. This feature allows you to quickly find the perfect angle for your 3D model, saving you time and energy compared to trying to position it manually.
  • Tip 3: Use the multiple and overlay/screen layer setting for coloring shadows and highlights. This technique allows you to create more dynamic lighting effects with a simple grey color instead of having to go back and forth between different colors on the color wheel.
  • Tip 4: Use the frame border folder to create webtoon panels. This layer mask will hide any lines that go outside the panel, and allow you to easily change the size and shape of the panel without having to redraw it.
  • Tip 5: Use Clip Studio Paint’s Story Edit feature to add dialogue to all of your pages at once. This will save you time and prevent confusion from trying to remember which page you added text to.
