About This Class


In this course I walk you through using the perspective tools inside of Manga Studio 5 / Clip Studio Paint. We first delve into the basics and the setup in one, two, and three point perspective. Then I walk you through the use of the  special rulers. A lot of students have expressed a certain confusion about these tools but the reason they are difficult to understand is because they have lots of options for controlling the perspective. 

I demonstrate these tools and show you how to make them much easier to work with. A few programs have now adopted perspective drawing tools but none of them are as functional and versatile as these are. The special rulers alone are huge time savers for comic book illustrators.

After I run through the basics I think take you through the entire process of creating the image you see above. The majority of this course is all in real time with only small amounts time lapsed in areas where I have already explained the process in real time and didn't want to bore you with repetition. 

I also teach you how to setup and edit your work efficiently by making proper use of the groups and layers. As well as give you a better understanding of the blending modes.

By the end of this 5 hour course you will have worked through the entire image with me and learned what techniques I use to create my digital paintings.

With this course you get -

-19 Step by Step Video Lessons ( 5 hours of Narrated Content )

-City Scape Art File - Jpeg to Study From

-Custom brushes that I used in this course 

Like any other classes you get from me I am here to help you with any questions you have. I appreciate your support so don't hesitate to ask, and giving me feedback for future lessons is greatly appreciated!

Good luck with your art!
