Clip Studio Paint Pro tutorial Part 3-12 | Decoration brushes


This time, I will be using decoration tools to add tones and patterns. Let’s start with the tones. Since this decoration brush uses anti-aliasing, I need to change the “Expression color” of the layer to “color” before drawing. I select the [Decoration] tool from the [Tool] palette and select “soft circles” in the [Effect] group. Further, I adjust the [Brush density], [Brush size] and [Particle size] in the [Tool property] palette, and start drawing near the feet of the characters. As this material is not “monochrome”, I have to use the [Tone] function in the [Layer Property] palette to change it into a monochrome tone. Next, I will draw the clothes’ patterns using another decoration brush. I create a new layer and change the expression color to “Color” once again. Then I choose the [Auto select] tool and [Refer other layers to select]. In the [Layer property] palette I activate [Select additionally] and select the different parts of the skirt. From the [Decoration] tools in the [Tool] palette, I use the [Water lily] in the [Flower] group. I draw these inside the selected area. After that, I change the Expression color of the layer back to “Monochrome”. I adjust the lines with the “Color threshold” slider and finish the skirt pattern. Next, I want to use a decoration brush that really pops. Again, I create a new layer. Then I select the [Ruler] tool and the [Special ruler] from the tool palette. From the available rulers I pick the [Focus line] ruler and place it approrpiately. I use the [Star] brush from the [Pattern] group of the [Decoration] tools. These stars are created by moving the pen along the ruler while adjusting the brush size at the same time. brush size at the same time
