I love clip studio, I've used other programs but it is the best program for comics.

My process, I start with a series of sketches, generally one sketch per layer. If a sketch shows potential I will lower opacity and retrace on a new layer. If i dont like a sketch I will delete the layer which in the end produces a sort of digital sketchbook. I will look at the sketches and develop the better ones. If I like it enough i will cut and paste it into a new project and title it and produce a finished project. Even for a black and white project I create new layers in order to add to or change a drawing until I'm sure I like the changes. It can result in many layers which I may or may not flatten later.

Here are some examples of unused sketches, they have not been redrawn, some are basic and some are more developed.

Mignola is a guy I try to draw like, he does everything I like, great design ,high contrast lighting, moody tone and more. In my opinion, if you're going to draw like someone you have to understand what he is doing. I'm trying. I have been looking at the long Halloween lately tho.

Those sketches look quite finished.. But I guess if you developed them, you would gray them down and redraw over them on a new layer?
Thanks for sharing.

Yeah TimR, when I work on a sketch I may refine proportions, clean up lines, redraw some bits and more. With sketches I get the idea on virtual paper as fast as I can and go from there. Greying the first sketch makes the next step feel more like inking.

Mecha...dark mode



Still working on mechs. I wonder how Manga artists could draw mechs consistantly without a 3d model.

Thanks Metalni, may have to research the question. Before 3d models I'm betting they used model sheets but nowadays 3d programs once the character is built make it so easy.

Cool design on that latest one! I think the font is competing for attention a bit too much. Otherwise it is completely awesome energy

Wow, love this one for some reasons. I do loved all of your entries here. You said this was done in Clip Studio? My daughter loaded up the program for me but I haven't tried it yet. This looks good!
