This workshop will focus on the technical uses of Clip Studio Paint as an Illustration & Comics Program. Students can expect a basic introduction to the program’s User Interface & hotkeys and will learn to utilize layers, brushes, built in 3D models, and comic creation features to develop their own illustrations and short comics. This intensive two week workshop will focus on Clip Studio Paint Pro though accommodations for those who own EX can be made, provided they inform the workshop coordinator (email@example.com) in advance. Please note that this workshop will focus on CSP for comic and illustration applications, NOT animation.
This workshop runs from Monday to Friday for two weeks, with homework assigned between sessions. While completion of these assignments are not mandatory, feedback will be provided for those who submit work and are interested in receiving such.
This workshop requires Internet Access and will take place via Google Hangouts/Meetings. Sessions will be recorded and provided to students. Students will be required to use their web camera or phone during the stream to share work if they would like to receive feedback or direction with their life drawing.
