real gpen or any kind of brush pen from clip assets
>>
>>3922611
It reduces the minimum pen sensitivity so that lines won't get overly thin from a light stroke. It also lets me draw with less force to make a regular line.
>>
>>3922709
any textured or gpen set to large size
>>
>>3922709
Like the other guys said, real gpen. But the secret to get this mood isn't the brush, it's the red blur effect around it coupled with the color choices, granular effect and overall oldschool anime style. Also it's just great line control.

>>
>>3923318
>>3922709

seems like it's just a textured brush. The reddish blur surrounding the lineart could very well just be a duplicated layer of the lineart underneath the lineart layer and color adjusted to be red (a small gaussian blur + deformation to make it stick out a little underneath), and then the layer's blend mode was possibly changed to hard light.
>>
>>3923590
a big eye opener for me was that a lot of inking is done at fixed width with no pressure sensitivity because inking digitally is so hard. in csp we're blessed with https://www.clip-studio.com/site/gd_en/csp/toolguide/csp_toolguide/100_reference/100_reference_startingandending.htm which is really awesome. just as with inking with pressure sensitivity, you want to set the minimum to something that you can pick up a line with to continute and it won't be noticeable that it's made of two strokes. even in analog, back in the day some would ink everything at one width and then adjust the weight around the image as need be. this lets you be a lot faster at cranking things out than if you try to ink everything with weight the first time through. that's where the vector layer stuff really comes into play. it can be hard to think about the lighting and shadow while you're inking.

>>3923612
>fixed width with no pressure sensitivity
o wow, yea! I'm just trying this now, it genuinely feels a lot better to ink like this. thanks so much!!
>>
>>3923623
yeah, it's an eye opener. make sure though that you use something like the size palette in cps when inking. try to keep the size of the brush consistent by using only a few (such as ~3) settings. consistent lines will look much better than resizing as you work around the piece.

I use a cintiq, and most of the time when I try to open a window it opens it off of the monitor in 4k (which is massive on my other shitty monitors), sometimes the window doesn't appear on any monitor at all. Does anyone know how to keep new CSP windows within the same screen as the main app?

It's one of the default inking brushes called "textured pen". Looks like the hardness is set to low to allow for transparency
>>
>>3923612

I personally don't use vector layers any more for inking. You get editing abilities in post, but the actual strokes you lay down are *less* precise. I prefer the added precision of working on regular raster layers and making the lines work from the start.

Ever since the update to mac OS Mojave, this program has ran like shit on my computer. It freezes my computer when opening or closing the program, it freezes my computer when saving, it freezes my computer when doing file operations such as browsing a folder and opening/closing a file.

>>
>>3926176

I get the feeling you don't actually know what a strawman is.

Explain to me the logical difference between x tool being cheating and y tool not being.

Is using a ruler cheating? Is using a wooden mannekin cheating? Is measuring with your pencil cheating? What about using a grid? Is using a color picker cheating? Is using a reference cheating?

It's almost like it's not the tool that's the problem but how you use it, imagine that.

MY CSP is veeeery slow any suggestions?

>>3926186
You misrepresenting my argument and "arguing" with that instead of actually trying to understand what i'm saying, you dumb reddirtspacer.
That's the fucking definition of the strawman in my book.
>Explain to me the logical difference between x tool being cheating and y tool not being.
Consider difference between "being able to do it without tool if you want to" and "unable to do it without the tool at all".
Master wouldn't be asking "is it ok to use tool x to save time?", i doubt he would even save anything with such gimmicks like using 3d models to get proportions of the figure.
It's obvious who are the people which ask such questions, and they for sure shouldn't be using such tools.
That is if they actually want to become good artists, not some shitty version of the printer.

What OS?

Mojave user here. Experiencing the same issue, thought it was just me. This is probably an issue with the OS and not the program; everything seemed to run faster on High Sierra. I get the feeling that the macOS dev team is shrinking more and more. With each new OS version, macOS just gets worse. My recommendation is to roll back to High Sierra, which is my plan.

Honest question, I really want to use clip paint studio, but I always got this problem with brushes leaving a "trail" of circles whenever I use them with a larger size. I've managed to lessen this by reducing the spacing of every fucking brush I use, but it's still shit, so I'm stuck with sai and photoshop.

Is this a problem with CSP, or related to something else? Tablet drivers? Ram?
>>
>>3926945
Sort of works, the fill is still on it's own raster layer though.

Thanks anyway.

Sure, brushes are okay until I make them larger than 100~120, at this size they start to leave a faint but noticeable trail.
Really weird, since I use photoshop, painter, krita and sai, and never had this problem, just tested and even retarded sizes like 2000 leave no trails in those other programs. It doesn't look bad at first, but whenever I try to paint at a high resolution using larger brushes, it's very noticeable.
Reducing the spacing kinda fix it partially, but ruins some brushes. Maybe it's more related to my hardware, have 8gb of ram, but maybe my cpu or whatever is crap.

tl;dr: CSP's brush engine works differently compared to PS. You either need to reduce the hardness so it looks smooth or you just need to deal with it.

the long explanation is that CSP applies each shape during a stroke in accordance to whatever your pressure/speed/etc. is if you have dynamics enabled for any setting. You'll get those circles if you have even one slider that affects the color/opacity of the stroke with dynamics enabled. You'll even get those circles if you disabled the dynamics for all the sliders and just lowered the Brush Density slider and dragged your mouse across the canvas. You can also reproduce this in Photoshop but PS can reduce the spacing for their brushes without the program taking a shit on you unlike CSP, who can't even produce a stroke at large sizes without turning into a slideshow if your PC isn't able to handle it.

If you want to reduce the possibility of those circle things happening then you'll have to disable color mixing and enable the option in pic related so the stroke at least comes out relatively smooth throughout. If your brush hardness is too high this will only mitigate the problem not completely solve it.
>>
>>3927744
you do realize theres opacity in csp right which does the same thing as that
>>
>>3922405
Krita's stabilizer is horrible. SAI/CSP's are infinitely better.
but honestly, if Krita had the same stabilizer, I'd use it over CSP. it just feels better.
>>
>>3926191
Same problem it fucking lags like hell at it hogs 2.5gb of RAM with one file open. I think there's a memory leak in the latest version.
>>
>>3926908

You cannot use fill on the vector layer. What you are supposed to do is setting the vector layer as a reference layer, then use fill tool with refer to other on a separate layer. More accurate than magic wand, plus you can drag + fill.
>>
>>3926180
it's great, use it
it's more precise than using pressure settings and it can help when you're making many small tight lines
>>
Open mesh transformation, pull the number of segments of the image to the max, ok now you have liquify
>>
>>3927940
I might change my whole lineart workflow to this with vector layers, truly a blessed thread.
>>
Here's something important every CSP user needs to know:

If you do not exit the program normally (i.e. force quit on a freeze, automatic windows update etc.) any changes to materials or new brushes created etc. will NOT be saved. Make it a habit to always quit and restart the program after you have created a new brush or material.

I made this brush and drawing with it is smooth until I hit ~140 px brush size. At that point I get bad delay in every stroke. Anybody know why that could be? It's a simple brush with no ground mixing, no anti-aliasing, and also wide spacing. Feels like brush performance in CSP is bad overall, even if I use a basic hard round I get lots of delay once I get to ~250 px. Is there anybody on this board who can use >500 px brushes without difficulty in CSP? Could it be a driver issue? My CPU is a 1800X so it should be fine I think
>>
>>3928385
why would u ever want to go past 50px just why
>>
>>3927744
Thank you anon, but I have already done all of this before, and it's still terrible, even with 0 gap option. Reducing the hardness would ruin brushes. All other programs give me absolutely no issues, I think CSP must either be terrible optimized or like other anon said, a memory leak. Even stuff like after effects doesn't lag as much as CSP in my notebook.

A thing I like doing is making a new layer, bucket fill it with black, set it on top and color blend mode. You can switch black & white and color view by turning it on and off. It's good for checking values.

It's not necessary to use vectors, you can use starting and ending with raster normally.

maybe I didn't understand, but what I said is that if you set a color blend layer on top of all the other layers, it turns the whole image black and white. I don't think you can change the expression color of all the layers at once and in any case it's clunkier than just clicking on the eye symbol.

i'm kinda overwhelmed still after buying it. the process of adding brushes and removing them in ps and csp is so clunky that i almost rather not even bother sometimes. takes a while on my computer to drop in a whole pack. i've spent hours just going through one set of tools which is a net negative on my art compared to just picking something and going. i think the default settings are really bad on a lot of them too which compounds the problem in terms of size jitter and whatever.

it's almost as if building your own custom brushes will always be infinitely better than using someone else's custom brushes because everyone paints differently

Clip Studio can't handle high-polygons though, so don't expect to import hi-poly models and draw without your program turning into a flipbook

Some rulers have an option called "scale" that you can set to "equal division".
Not optimal, but it's still something.

You can also save the divided frame as template material.
This way you can use it directly when you create a new file.

1. try uninstalling and reinstalling the latest version of CSP.
2. if Windows files got corrupted then open Command Prompt as Administrator and type in "sfc /scannow" then hit Enter and let is scan your pc for corrupted windows files.
3. update video card drivers?

If neither of those things work then I don't know what to do.

CSP. I've been using SAI for years and now it's really hard to migrate, cause SAI has the best line control.
But it's not worth it, CSP has way more options and resources, as well as good brush settings.

Only use SAI if you do nothing but linework. But even then you'll miss some CSP features like 3D posing, layout editing, (decent) text tools, etc.

I just started digital illustration and I was wondering whether there's any use for stabilization, or if it's just a crutch for people that are bad at drawing

Stabilization is one of the most important improvements that has come to digital painting since it's infancy.
It compensates for the decrease in friction and tactile feedback you get from working with a brush or pencil with traditional media. Moreover, in older versions of photoshop for instance it was actually not possible to make certain smooth curves or in your brush strokes due to software limitations. Long sharp tapering brush strokes was also difficult if not impossible to achieve. It had nothing to do with skill. So no, it is not just a crutch, although like anything else it can be abused.

I like to keep the settings low. If you have it cranked up too high you are unable to do sensitive and spontaneous lines and all marks start to look the same.
For Clip Studio brushes that simulate traditional brushes, I usually have it around 8-10 and the "brush stroke" setting up to 3. Your tablet and personal preference might be different though. The latter setting not only corrects the lines but the ends aswell which is great when you want to do several brush strokes in quick succession with tapering ends, like working with a traditional sable brush.

>>
>>3933480
sold, thanks frenn
>>
>>3933525
if you took raw input from a tablet it'd be unusable. the tablet already has drivers that do various amounts of stabilization to make them usable, stabilization in program is just an extension of that and in no way a crutch. it's one of those "no rules just tools", stabilization will make your lines smoother but won't make them "better"

How often do you guys actually blend colors with your brushes? I feel like I'm battling against the brush more often than having it do what I want or get the shapes I want. It frustrated me to the point where I completely disabled the mix ground color section and just relied solely on the brush density and opacity and I never looked back.

I have mix ground bound to a key so I can turn it off if an asset brush came with it on. I don't find it useful at all either. I have some brush called acryllic gouache 02 and wet gouache 01 that're actually very good brush/blender combos with curves that I got from clip assets. I usually blend by color picking from the painting or manually. Lately I've come around to the blending brushes in the program. Blur with running color has no character whatsoever but blends, soothing watercolor is nice, running color on fiber (mine is set to blending) also gives nice texture.

https://assets.clip-studio.com/en-us/detail?id=1433807
>>
>>3934380
The blending mode has this thing where if you pick alpha as your color to erase on the canvas, it likes to pick up colors of pixels around the brush radius so you end up coloring with a slight off-color with a tiny bit of opacity instead of getting a clean erase.

You don’t get this issue with running color but then you get a laggy brush. I wish CSP’s brush engine was more optimized
>>
>>3933830
This, the "stabilization crutch" meme is one of the most retarded things /ic/ has come up with.
You want to know what digital art is without stabilization? Use one of the old signature imput things banks had before smarthphones. Those were made by Wacom too and had more pressure sensitivity than the bamboo.
>>
>>3934427

Oh yeah I also do that. I have Mix Ground on a key and basically what I did to all my brushes is if I want to blend then I just turn on mix ground and it turns whatever brush I have selected into a pure mixing brush. I don't use the blending options for anything else.

If I want controlled strokes then I have mix ground disabled and then when I want to start blending colors together I enable mix ground and my brushes start blending, it's really nice. You have to make the settings so that amount/density of paint is set to 0 so all you have is color stretch.
>>
>>3934595
>You have to make the settings so that amount/density of paint is set to 0 so all you have is color stretch.
yeah when I made that image I realized that the brushes I liked the most for that were 0/0/25-30 for the paint loading and color stretch. Blur is 0/0/0 and I limit use because it can look too digital usually but is the right tool for some gradients. Speaking of what you said, I need to convert more of my painting brushes to blending so I can free up the blending tool hotkey.

The mix ground hotkey is a lifesaver, somewhat similar to C transparency. I didn't paint digitally for a while and couldn't figure out why all my erasers sucked on E when I came back to CSP after PS. Then I remembered I just had my brushes do the erasing.

>>3935618
csp has a setting in brush size iirc that's like "brush velocity" that'll help you get an effect similar to this, basically slower you draw causes larger brush, mimicking pen bleed. obviously still have pen pressure on size too if you can but this setting can help you achieve that fatter tip at beginning and/or end of stroke look that this pic seems to have in some spots

You really only need EX if you are making a comic/manga
The majority of features that Pro lacks are centered around making, managing and exporting a multipage comic, also you cant export animation as an opentoonz file in Pro.
The new janky pose scanner, auto colorize AI, 3D object conversion to 2D lines/tones are also only in EX.

Wait for a sale, make sure to sign up to their newsletter as sometimes its a promo code.

The other day i was doing a recolor, i used giant masks and changed the layers to "color" 3 layers of doing that and it would randomly crash, CSP autosaves every 15min (changed it to 8min) so it wasnt that big of a deal but it was still annoying as there wasn't any lag to show something was wrong.

HOLY FUCKING SHIT

Why can't CSP's line flow be 100% like Paint Tool SAI?
I've drawn an entire piece on it today, 4 figures and all, and all I could think of the whole time was "I want to go back to SAI."

There are no rules, neither tools.

Am I too intoxicated after 9 years of SAI?
Took me a bit above 5 minutes to manage to make a face's contour that looked like what I had in mind and not Wojak's face.

I'm probably fucking up some setting, where are more pen setings then what I have under the tools Stabilization, Anti-alias etc.?
>>
>>3937390
>line flow

explain
>>
>>3937397
SAI's stabilizer feels more helpful.
At 0 stabilization, SAI's lines are perfectly controllable, just a bit jagged.
At 0 stabilization, CSP's lines are still unresponsive and hard to land on the right spots.

It's the same reason why I never used Phososhop, although CSP is way better than PS in this regard.

You CAN use vectors ONLY when you need a precise work or when you have to draw something proportional, precise, or "patterned"

https://assets.clip-studio.com/en-us/search?order=dl
Here is an excellent quality of brushes (I have tried many of them), they will not do magic for you, but I recommend experimenting and even customize to your taste to get something "unique". One of the big differences between a professional and an amateur is the freedom you take to make the lineart.
There is no specific brush for lineart, yes, they are appropriate but you can use ANYTHING do it
>>
>>3938808
>>3938126
Most people don't draw with vectors. If you're concerned with quality loss, just work at higher resolutions than needed so that any eventual scale won't affect your image much.
>>
>>3938962

Vector layers actually makes your lines LESS precise, stroke by stroke, since they are not capable of representing the full range of bitmap based brushes, especially when smudge and color mixing is present. They do offer more flexibility after the stroke is layed down, ofcourse.

If you want to animate, it's great. The pro version has basically just a trial where your can only animate 1 second.
Also I've used the multi-page comic tools for a thing and they're a lot more useful than I thought. I'll definitely use them for longer comics.
The other tools that use machine learning or converting photos in screentones seem to be very hit or miss but I never really cared about learning to use them.

I like these next methods for max control.
Make Lineart layer, black lines only, set to "reference layer"

-Clipping Method-
Create new folder and 2 new layers inside it,
Drag and drop Texture/cross hatching in the top layer, resize how you want.
"Clip at Layer below"
at layer below paint in with white to reveal texture from the clipping layer.
make sure to disable anti-aliasing as this creates fuzzy value varied edges.

-MASK METHOD-
Create new layer & "Lock Transparent Pixel" this will prevent accidentally painting in the layer when switching between them (you can still accidentally erase the hidden texture).
Drag and drop a "Monochromatic" - "Cross-Hatching" or "Texture" from "Materials", adjust size (less white space between pattern = denser darker looking tone, be sure to zoom out).
Create "Mask" and "Mask Outside Selection", this should hide the texture. (unlink mask if you want to resize texture. save first cuz could crash/freeze)
Click on the "Mask" in the Layer thumbnail (Should be a black box with a check mark to the left of it linking it to the layer),
Now when you paint in the mask it reveals the texture.
Use "Tone Scraper" from "Airbrush" tool on Lower Density for lighter areas and transparent color to erase, (check "Do not exceed line of reference layer" so no bleed beyond lineart), you can paint in the mask with anything.

You can change the level of Grey by using the Layer Color effect and changing the main color,

you can make the textures literally only 2 tones with the "expression color" "monochrome" layer effect but its a pain and should only be done after because trying to change things once those effects are applied is like baking a cake with a blindfold on. the effects change the pattern a little too as it is deciding which values to discard.

Why is there no brushes that mimmick the default photoshop brush?
Ive tried making it soft and turning up the Anti aliasing but everything still has this sharp eye hurting look on it, custom brush shapes also dont do shit.
The brush work is overall just ugly to look at compared to PS but its so much easier to draw with CSP.
If i could just have a brush that looks 100% like a PS brush i would never touch PS again.

The default is literally just a black circle, not hard to find since you seem to know what it looks like anyway.
