EDIT: `Charlie-Bowater Also provides this PERFECT brush for Photoshop. Best I've ever used, and it creates a painterly look without having to take so much time with flow and opacity. Here it is: [link] USE IT!


So obviously this is a big file.
As a request from my good friend ~ziggyfish, I made a quick tutorial on my painting technique. As I'm still figuring things out, I'm sure there is a better way, but here's mine.

What can I use instead of smudge tool in ClipStudio Paint ? Does blend tool or waterbrush work the same way ? Great tutorial btw :)

Link to brush is broken :C  

Btw, nice tutorial, well explained!!Clap

Ah! Well, the brush isn't really needed.  The important part is using any brush with Opacity and Flow jitters set to pen pressure (In the transfer tab in the brush editor)

You do some amazing work. Thank you for the tutorial. I was having a hard time comprehending how this "painting" goes on Manga Studio, but this made it easier to understand thanks again.

Thanks! And I've never used Manga Studio but hopefully the same principles apply :)

Some of the options seem to be the same, so I am making okay progress.
