How to Color ● Full Digital Art Shading Process – Tutorial [Clip Studio Paint 2023]


In this video I am showing you my entire shading/colouring process for my anime art in Clip Studio Paint. You can follow along! All information and resources are mentioned here~

Also, this is just my preferred way of colouring for my stylized art, so it’s not meant to reflect realism 🙂

  1. Thank you for doing this tutorial, I just finished my line art of a oc then I was desperate to find a helpful Shading & Coloring tutorial, It really helped me and the other viewiers.

    Keep up the good work, but make sure to rest and take care of yourself.

    I'm a type of person who usually don't understand things I'm not good at, but I quite understand this.😅

  2. You are literally my inspiration. I follow on Instagram as well 👏. Keep up the good work and I hope to post art just like you 🥹

  3. this is a really nice tutorial it seems so simple and looks extremely good ! but by any chance would you know what ur artstyle is called? I've seen many people with a similar style and wanted to study it but idk what its called ..

  4. I learn so much from your video thank you!!
    I'm still a beginner and struggling with all the tools, this was a huge help.
    How did you separate your hair for coloring from all the other part in 4:23 ?

  5. The idea of making a messy color in for shadows, then make new separate layers, then duplicate and clip the messy color to those cleaner outlines is a very clever idea. I've done messy coloring for a practice shadow but would then make silhouettes of stuff for each layer and couldn't recreate that nice look I like in the other one. That's very clever.

  6. Thank you for the video ,the coloring tutorial was very good. I'm going to use the tips and the tools to make my art, because my line art sometimes sucks so as rendering ,and I really didn't like my art but I think with your tips and a bit of improvement I'm sure I will get better!! , and love your art style!!! again thank you for this video i really needed it!!<3333

  7. Thank you so much for this video!! I've been wondering how to shading like this and you explain it in very easy way I can understand it. Thank you so much!

    And you also draw giyuu! for this,thank you!! <3

  8. Thank you for uploading your rendering techniques! I've been really wanting to branch away from cel shading and into the more painterly side of digital art but have always found it rather difficult. Do you have any tips when it comes down to blending away colors without having them become muddy? I always seem to struggle with soft shadows the most because if you go too far, you'll lose the shape of the form that you're trying to create.

  9. I didnt have the "flacher marker" in my default brushes but i had "flat marker". Asking if this is the correct brush (since kuroshiro has csp in a other language)
