For more info my tablet, it's the Intuos size M which you can find here. (sometimes it's called Manga, sometimes just Pen & Touch...they're the same product!)

As an awkward novice, sometimes I need someone to hold my hand through the process. And this tutorial is wonderful. Thanks!

Hey, ich hätte ein paar Fragen. :)

Du hast früher ja Sai benutzt, nicht wahr? Ich finde die Strichstärke in dem Tutorialbild sehr schön, aber bei Sai ist es ja so, dass man den Druck selbst auch nochmal einstellen kann. (Ganz unten bei den Einstellungen, wo 200 bedeutet, dass der Pinsel schon bei leichtem Druck sehr stark ausfächert, während man bei 1 praktisch ins Tablet ritzen muss, damit sich die Pinseldicke etwas verändert.) Gibt es ein entsprechendes Feature in Clip Studio Paint bzw. falls du es abschätzen kannst, welcher Druckeinstellung "entspricht" der Pinsel in Clip Studio Paint ungefähr? Darüber hinaus würde ich gerne wissen, ob der Pinsel an sich vergleichpar ist mit dem normalen Pen aus Sai oder ob er etwas Struktur bzw. andere Eigenschaften hat, denn das kann ich durch die ganz leichte Pixelung im Bild nicht richtig zuordnen, und wie viel Stabilizer du benutzt.

Würdest du generell eher Sai empfehlen oder ist der Wechsel zu CPS deiner Meinung nach sinnvoller?

Entschuldigung für die vielen Fragen und viele Grüße!

Hallo,
in Clip kann man Stich- und druckstärke ebenfalls einstellen. welcher Pinsel welchem entpricht habe ich nicht untersucht, Clip hat aber mehr Auswahl imo.
Ein Wechsel habe ich nur gemacht, weil mein Wacom öfters keine drucksensibilität in Sai mehr hatte und es mir auf den Keks ging die Treiber immer zu reinstallieren.

Clip hat allerdings viele Features die einfach für Mangazeichner sehr nützlich sind.
Jeder muss das selber sehen, ob es was für sie ist. (z.B. durch ein trial)

Hoffe das hilft.

Miki, can you tell me how to scan a sketch into a drawing app??? Is there any type of software you need or hardware?

:iconzombiesmile:
Zombiesmile Featured By Owner Mar 27, 2016  Professional
um... I don't use an app since I work on a PC. You need a scanner and the scanner comes with scan software.

Does the program you use has a "Line Stabilization/Balance" option?

Try to also use different brushes, some people like using the "airbrush" one for line art.

This tutorial was amazing. Thanks for sharing!

When using "darker pencil" how do you keep smooth lines with any kind of texture? Because mine leaves the marks of well... a pencil and it's kind of annoying when I try to make the object "pop".

um, I don't know if I understand. what texture are you talking about?

I was using manga studio and the tool "darker pencil" came with a lighter texture. I tried it on clip studio and I had the results as you showed in the tutorial. Thank you for answering  though. 

You have a great gallery by the way :)

I always ink on Photoshop on one layer. Do stabilizers make that much of a difference?

Then I guess I'll have to look into a program just for inking. Either that or keep using Photoshop and hope my lines get good enough to not need it. XD
