Inking using vector layers on manga studio 5 by martinacecilia Inking using vector layers on manga studio 5 by martinacecilia

Celsys expanded vector layers SO MUCH from the previous version of the software (manga studio EX4 or comic studio). It's now an incredibly helpful and powerful tool.

I'm using the japanese version of manga studio 5 (called Clip studio paint) with a fan translation so tools could have different names but everything should be fairly the same barren some personal settings.

I heard that Celsys rolled out the Japanese version CSP 1.5 now, which has an animation editor. Do you know of any fan translation for this new version? The English version 1.5 has no release date scheduled yet. BTW I like the art you make with CSP. I find those Japanese sex dolls that most manga artists do somehow pervert and bad for kids.

The only thing I dislike with video tutorials is if you only need one small bit of info you forgot, you may have to sit through the whole video for that one little detail you need. This is why I like written tutorials over video, easier to find just the part you need, and not sit through it. Worse when you sitting waiting for it then find that it never covered what you needed or was about something else and the title misled you.
"What was that one option I forgot?"
*sits through 20 minutes of other stuff, find oiut it don't cover that bit you need.. sighs and moves onto yet another tut*

LOVE Vector Layers! That's always how I ink realistic comics work, but they may be even MORE valuable if you do cartoons with the app.

Thank you. This vid has answered so many questions for me. I've been playing around with MS5 since I purchased it and I've been looking for some decent tutorials. I actually thought that the vector tools were somewhat limited, but you have pleasantly proved me wrong. ;)

Manga 5 vectors do not seem to have a function to change line colour - the only method I have discovered is by using the vector magnet to cover one line with another of a different colour. Does Clip Studio offer an alternative?
martinacecilia Featured By Owner Mar 5, 2013  Professional General Artist
uhm, actually my version of MS5 does. but not with the eyedropper, you have to select it with the tool that resembles a little cube (operation-->object). Once you've selected the line (or multiple lines holding shift key) you change the color in the tool property tab. or in any of the color tabs (color slider or color set etc etc). that eyedropper thing is really annoying tho. I really hope they'll fix it.

well u can get the english version now... so u wont have to have a fan translation.
martinacecilia Featured By Owner Feb 21, 2013  Professional General Artist
yeah I know, except this works perfectly fine, I'm not that willing to pay twice for the same product if it already works well
Vertous Featured By Owner Feb 21, 2013  Student Artist
yeah ik what u mean.
