Coloring your Lineart in Clip Studio Paint

General / 22 February 2019

I got a new tutorial up on YouTube, it’s about how I color my lineart in Clip Studio Paint. The intro is a bit silly and has terrible audio but the actual tutorial is pretty watchable.

One thing I forgot to show in the tutorial is the topmost layer: I always have a Hue/Saturation/Luminosity layer set to -100 Saturation on top. That way I can turn it on and off to check if my values are working.

Because if the values don’t work the colors will never look quite right! That’s why when you’re very new to color and light it’s highly recommended you practice in grayscale first.  And I still always like to check, and I usually find my contrast could use a little push.
