Submission Guidelines

This group is for artists who use CLIP STUDIO PAINT (Manga Studio) software only.

We welcome and encourage you to submit to our gallery. Please be sure that your work meets the following guidelines:

Your work MUST be created in CLIP STUDIO PAINT (Manga Studio) or use our software as part of your creation process.

You must state that your work was created in either Manga Studio or Clip Studio Paint, or that it was used in your process, in your artist’s notes. If your image doesn’t mention this it will not be accepted.

Our group is for members of all ages. For that reason images containing nudity, graphic violence, adult language, or the use of drugs will not be accepted.

You can submit work of any style as long as it was created using our software.

If your work is declined do not be offended, it is because it does not meet the submission guidelines.
We have a new blog series starting on the Smith Micro blog. We sat down with world-renowned comic book artist and Official Influencer David Gibbons, to discuss some of his latest and greatest projects. In this three part blog series, Dave describes how CLIP STUDIO PAINT played a pivotal role in creating pages in the 2000th issue of 2000AD, the cover for the Dan Dare book, (a collection of his 2000AD strips) as well as pages in the 500th issue of Doctor Who Magazine. He explains what his creative process was like.

Artist Opportunity:

Looking for a Manga artist to work on a webcomic for mobile release and later for print publication.

This will be a contract work with planning involved etc. It will be handle through Rising Sun Comics as part of Plunge Comics, NZ

Please note we are an Independent Comic Publisher creating original characters and titles.

This specific series is an Isekai style story set in a fantasy world. So, if you are interested you need to know how to draw mythological creatures and life forms and be flexible and willing to let loose with drawing actions scenes.

As I am the writer on the project I can ley you know that Re: Zero is one my favourite Manga and I like supernatural creatures and elements so be aware that these and magic will be part of the world that the story is set in as well as the modern.

Please contact HR at with sample works and let them know I sent you.
