Today we’re going to dive into how I create a digital illustration using the Microsoft Surface Pro 6 and Clip Studio Paint Ex.

But first don’t forget to sign up for the newsletter (on the right side of this article) to do not miss anything!

Here is my process:

  • Using the G-Pen Brush of Clip Studio Paint I trace the outline in black on a vector layer
  • I create a new raster layer and, using the vector layer as a reference layer, I start adding flat colors.
  • I create a new raster layer for the lights and using the white I start adding them.
  • I create a new raster layer and set it as “multiply”. This one is for the shadows and using a violet dark tone I start adding them.
  • I add some white elements with the G-Pen.
  • Using the Rough Wash brush I add the red color splash around the illustration
  • I add on top of all the layers the paper texture in overlay
