Brushes for Clip Studio Paint

Download for free on Cubebrush or Gumroad



Required: Clip Studio Paint 1.8.0 or later



1. Select the pencil tool in sidebar on the left
2. Right-click on any pencil brush (for example 'Rough Pencil')
3. Click 'Import sub tool ...'
4. Open the brush file at the location where you downloaded the file

Brush files for Clip Studio Paint and Manga Studio 5 have the file extension *.sut (for example 'Square.sut'). Please keep in mind, drag & drop doesn't work for importing brushes!

These are my custom brushes which I made for CSP but they should also work in Manga Studio 5. All these brushes are completely self-made! :D Btw the 'soft brush' is made from my pencil texture which I already uploaded here. I liked to work with them in photoshop so I converted them for CSP. (with some adaptions of course)
If you use them, a credit would be nice. ;) Besides it would be really cool, if you post your illustrations here in the comments when you actually used my brushes.  (would be interesting to see how others paint with them)
I posted some short descriptions for all brushes on tumblr!

Free for personal & commercial use!
Please don't reupload them or claim them as your own.

Hello you have the most impressive art using clip studio i've seen on the internet. I use csp (current) ex version so i downloaded these brushes. Not sure why so many people are having problems i just went to gumroad downloaded them extracted the file then opened csp. Then i simply drag and dropped them in one of the brush setting of my choosing. With that said i am a try beginner and hope to one day be on your level as an artist. If it doesn't take up to much of your time could you please explain which brush you use and for what task you most use them for so that in my drawing i will know ok this is best suited for this task etc. Also did you do the above paint using only these brushes if so amazing.

Hey, thanks a lot! This means a lot to me. Heart  Believe me, when you love drawing and keep at it, you'll accomplish a lot. :)

Honestly, this issue is very uncommon... my brushes have currently over 50k downloads and even if only 1% of the affected people leave a comment here, then not even 0.01% have this issue. And because I got no answers when I tried to help them, I assume they did something wrong or have an old csp version.

Anyway, I originally uploaded those brushes because I got asked about it on tumblr. You can find my original answer with a small 'how to' here: What brushes do you use in clip studio?
I update the brushes more or less frequently and the post describes the old set, but most of the brushes are still the same. So I hope that helps. On a side note, I made small tutorial where I describe the brushes I use and their purpose a bit: A litte walkthrough

Also, I have a lot more brushes than I uploaded on dA, but mostly I used those brushes to create that illustration, yes. :) My most used brushes atm are: the pencil brush, the acrylic brush (used to be called 'brush' lol), the soft brush and the hard round brush. My fav standard brush from csp is 'Paint and apply'. You can find it in the watercolor section. It's really good for smooth transitions.

Hey, thanks for you comment. I tried to replicate your problem, but importing the brushes works fine for me. I used the current version of Clip Studio 1.7.8 for Windows and Mac.

I'd like to help you import the brushes, therefore I'd like to ask you some questions: Does importing other brushes than mine work for you? What version of Clip Studio do you use? What operating system do you use (Windows/Mac) and from which platform did you download my brush set, gumroad or cubebrush? Did you unzipp the downloaded folder or just double click? And finally, did you use the method to import brushes that I described here to import the brushes? Because please keep in mind that Clip Studio doesn't support 'drag&drop' for brushes unfortunately. If you used the method I described and it didn't work for you, then would you mind providing me screenshots or video of the steps you took to install the brushes?

I tried the exact method, but I got "Failed to import subtool". I normally have no issues downloading brushes.

Can you provide me a video how you import the brushes? I still can not replicate the problem. Additionally, it would be helpful if you answer the questions above: Which OS do you use and what version of Clip Studio do you have installed? Did you download from gumroad or cubebrush and did you unzip the folder first?

I've used your square brush for a couple years I believe (I believe it was your brush). All my recent work has been mostly done by that square brush lol.
