Wonder Woman – New Suit Design

Do you want to try your hand at drawing a new suit design for Wonder Woman? Just download the image below and see what you can come up with.

There has been a variety of styles to this iconic character over the years.  This can be a fun exercise to do and a great way to try new things with the look of your character designs.

By using a pre-drawn pose like this one you can spend more time focusing on the details of the suit.  So when you are in the mood to draw poses make sure to save them to reference later.  This can be a huge time saver when a deadline is looming over your head!

Here is the Pose Reference Sheet – https://gum.co/YqUIG

Digital Painting in Manga Studio 5 – Character Design

I am currently working on my next lesson for drawing and painting in Manga Studio 5 / Clip Studio Paint.  This fantasy art piece will be what I demonstrate from start to finish while explaining the tools I use within Manga Studio 5.

In these lessons you will learn how I draw out a concept like this one and continue to make changes until I am satisfied. Then we will move to applying the paint effects. You will learn how I use layers and groups, combine modes, custom brushes, quick masks, mesh transformation, and pretty much everything it takes to bring this artwork to completion. You will even learn some cool post processing techniques that I use to get my artwork ready for the old portfolio!

You will also get some cool custom brushes to work along with as well as a copy of the art file.

I will keep everyone posted on the release of this next lesson so be sure to follow me on my Gumroad here –

Digital Painting in Manga Studio 5 – Working in Perspective

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. ( Scroll to the next slide to see the entire picture. ) 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 – Manga Studio 5 Format ( You can also request a PSD )

-Custom brushes that I used in this course

Like any other products you get from me on my Gumroad 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!

Dragon Scale Brushes for Clip Studio Paint / Manga Studio 5

Clip Studio Paint / Manga Studio 5 Custom Brush Demonstration

Dragon Scales and Spikes Brush Test
Dragon Scales and Spikes Brush Test

Here is a sample from the new brushes that I created for Clip Studio Paint Pro / Manga Studio 5. These are some of the Dragon Scales and Spike brushes. This little mess you see here was created in about 15 minutes so don’t judge me yet!  I just want to test them out and see what I can create with them.  Like anything else, the more that I use them the better I will get.  I hope anyways!  I actually don’t think this came out too bad for just playing around.  Imagine if I actually started with a good sketch.

So I just wanted to give you a quick demonstration of these brushes and let you know how they work if you decide to try them or already have them.  Basically they are a two tone effect. The brighter side of the effect will be your foreground color and the darker side will be the background color. ( The swatch that you see in Black is the background color in this example. )

Then once you put down enough of the texture to create your effect, you need to bring it out further with things like a soft brush set to “Linear Burn” for shadows and “Glow Dodge” for highlights.  This will help to bring out the effects without covering up the details like “Normal” mode will.  You can also add shadow colors with “Multiply” as well for a nice effect.

The Spike brush goes with the push of the pen so keep that in mind for getting them in the right place. The brushes used in this demonstration are here –

019 Dragon Scales

020 Dragon Skin

021 Spike Brush

022 Dragon Scale Trim Brush

And a Soft Airbrush
