20 of the best Clip Studio Paint (Manga Studio 5) Features that make it better than Adobe Photo Shop

Here is the full Clip Studio Paint/Wacom webinar I did last week. We had connectivity issues, so the entire video has been re-edited so it is jitter free with a silk-smooth finish.
Thanks to CLIP STUDIO PAINT for inviting me to do this – and thanks to all who asked questions.
ANY OTHER QUESTIONS? I’d be happy to answer them here since the Q&A was a little short due to my rambling.

This is so cool – CampingBoxes in Airzona licensed my Tiki Totem skateboard design to sell on their hand-made storage units for outdoorsmen. This thing is huge! It printed beautifully, and it wraps nicely around the sides. So lucky to have my artwork on so many different things!….#art #originalartwork #mangastudio #clipstudiopaint #illustration #tikiart #tshirtart #hireanillustrator #freelanceartist #campingbox

Decided to spend some extra cash and get some wood-engraved business cards from @graffitipete for the Jack Herer Cup in Las Vegas I'll be attending next month. Figured it might not hurt to make a business card that people will hesitate to throw away!

Wu-Tang Clan Russ Bus Logo

Famous European military story C

Description:

Fun parody tribute to the Wu-Tang Clan rappers in a shoot-out. The design was for apparel and a vehicle wrap for the russefeiring tradition.  If you haven’t heard of it, basically russefeiring involves an entire class of Norwegian students renting a bus (a Russebuss), painting every inch of it with really cool street art, and then partying in it night and day for an entire month during graduation.  The different classes wear their designs ever where they go as they clash with rival classes.  I’ve done a bunch of these now, and really enjoy it.

Piece of fanart I created of the Mario bros. as gangsters, drawn in pen and ink with a pentel brush pen on bristol paper, and colored in Clip Studio Paint. Always fun to twist characters to the dark side a bit!….#art #mario #mariofanart #pentelbrushpen #mangastudio #clipstudiopaint #illustration #hireanillustrator #freelanceartist #wacomcintiq

This is one of the most unique projects I've had in a while: I've been comissioned by a private collector to transform this old Judge Dredd pinball playfield into an unofficial Breaking Bad theme! They mailed it over to me – I photographed it and digitized it, and I've been drawing characters from the show all over it. The final prodcut will be printed on vinyl and applied. I'm about half finished. Can't wait to share!#pinballart #pinballartwork #pinball #pinballmachine #playfield #backglass #freelanceart

Here's the character turnaround illustration I originally created for the Flyers that was sent to the costume company, Character Translations Inc to make Gritty into a the big ball of orange fur we all love or hate! I originally submitted 25 different 20-minute rough sketches of what the mascot could be, and the Art Directors picked something very similar to what Gritty looks like today. We went through many different variations (such as adding wings, a tail, different colors, teeth, etc) before arriving at this turnaround. **I will probably do a live dawing session Friday afternoon around 2pm EST on my YouTube channel and social media if you want to join, I'd be happy to answer any questions about the process.#philadelphiaflyers @grittynhl #nhl #hockey#mascot #characterdesign #characterdesigner #conceptartist #mascotdesign #characterart
