Next I will be doing the sketching,
which will be the base for the inking process. I create a new layer folder and move all layout sketches into it. After the roughly drawn first layout sketch,
I’m going to add more detailed parts to the sketch… …so that I can actually use it to place the lineart above it. I create a new layer and change the name to “Sketch”… …while also changing the expression color of it to [gray]. I continue drawing the sketch with the [Pencil] tool . Then I continue to draw,
using the [Navigator] palette rotating, … …zooming in and out,
and flipping the canvas back and forth. Using [Undo] and [Redo] a lot,
is really the key to creating a cleaner sketch. For parts, where it is difficult to make out
the sketch drawing from the underlying draft,… …it is best to lower the opacity of the layer beneath
in the [Layer] palette, to draw more easily. The sketch for the page is done. By the way, for the sketch of the two main characters, I used the CLIP STUDIO PAINT 3D models. I will explain to you how to use these in a different video.
