How to draw Manga This time, I'll be presenting how to draw comics in ibisPaint! From the “+” in the lower left of My Gallery, create a new canvas.
Scroll to the bottom and tap “A4 150dpi”.
From the “Material Tool” on the upper right, select a “Paper Template”.
Configure it as “Comic Manuscript Paper A4 (300dpi)”.
Although it's a little tricky, if you tap the perspective or mesh deformation, it will be the perfect size.
How to use comic manuscript paper This is where I start drawing comics.
This is where I start drawing comics.
Here is something important to note when using comic manuscript paper! Up to here is the range that will be printed.
The red portion won't be printed! So make sure you don't draw anything or write any dialogue there! Although this is within the range that will be printed, this part will eventually be cut off.
The interior lines are “Cut Off Lines”, and the exterior lines are “Borders”.
If you fill in the space between the cut off lines and the borders halfway, there will be places that were not filled in when it is bound, so make sure you fill in the space between the cut off lines and the borders! The spots there were not filled in will not be visible when it is bound.
This is called the “Binding”.
This is also within the range that will be printed, but it will be hidden, so be careful! If you draw anything or write dialogue in the binding, it will be hard to see once you open it after it's bound.
In the case of it being on the outside on this page, you can clearly read the lines, so there's no problem with this layout! The binding on a left page is on the right, and the binding on a right page is on the left, so make sure you remember that! In general, for anything important in the story, go with this frame! Open the “Layer window”, and draw a rough sketch on a separate layer from the manuscript paper.
Based on what I noted before about manuscript paper, draw a simple sketch! The rough sketch is done! Open the Layer window, and lower the “Layer Opacity”.
Add a new layer, and draw a more detailed sketch! Carefully draw in the character's facial expression here! The sketch is done! It's a comic, so draw the expression more lively than normal.
It looks strange only for this face! Just as before, lower the opacity of the sketch layer, and ink over the lines of the sketch! From the “Tool Selection window”, open the “Frame Divider tool”.
Tap inside the canvas and make a panel.
With the slider on the bottom, you can change the size and thickness of the entire panel.
I'll explain how to make panels that are easy to read.
If you stretch out the vertical spaces, and make the horizontal spaces narrower than the vertical spaces, it will make it easier to read.
Open “Frame Divider setting”.
Use the slider on the bottom to increase the “Vertical Interval”.
You can easily create a clean panel layout! Once you have made the panels, open the Layer window, add a new layer below the panel layout layer, and ink over the characters.
Use the “Dip Pen (Hard)” brush.
Carefully draw it in! Once you have inked it over, now you fill it in.
Open the Layer window, and hide the sketch layer.
Add a fill layer.
For places you want filled in, draw them with the pen and fill them in with the “Fill tool”.
I'll apply screentones.
Open the Layer window, and add a layer.
Open the Blending Mode, and change it to “Screentone”.
This time, I selected “Dot L6”.
There are tons of other screentones in addition to Dot L6! If the brush is colored black, the screentone's pattern won't show through, so open the “Color window”, and change it from black to gray.
If you do that, the screentone will show through! Depending on how light or dark the color is will affect how strong the screentones become.
I'll fill in the shadows.
With physical screentones, this would end up very expensive, but you can use as many screentones as you want with ibisPaint! And you don't have to use a cutting tool, so you don't have to worry about hurting yourself! You can take care of applying screentones so easily! Next, I'll create a gradation for the screentones.
Open the Layer window, and add a new screentone layer.
Using the Fill tool, you can fill in the screentones so easily! With the exchange button, switch over from the Brush tool to the Eraser tool.
Open the Brush window, and select “Airbrush (Particle)”.
Shave off the screentones.
You can easily create gradations for the screentones! I'll make the background.
When representing a character's emotions, instead of just with their facial expression, the background is also important.
If the background matches the facial expression, it will make it easier to convey the emotion, but if they are mismatched, it will totally ruin it, so be careful of that! Select background area from the “Magic Wand tool” option in the Tool Selection window.
Once selected, select the “Emotion Backgrounds (Gray)” folder and select the “Black spot fog” with Material tool.
Once configured, tap “Remove Selection”.
Change the background layer to a screentone.
Once changed to a screentone layer, the pattern for the screentone will be modified.
Next, add scenery to the character's background! By adding scenery, that will increase the amount of information and improve the persuasiveness of the story, so the scenery fulfills an important role.
Don't worry even if you're bad at drawing scenery! With these sorts of resources and pictures of scenery, you can process them to look like a monochromatic comic style! I'm also not really that good at drawing scenery, so I love this feature! As with before, select background area with the Magic Wand tool.
With the Material tool, select the “Background Anime (color)” folder and select “Shopping District”.
Once configured, tap “Remove Selection”.
Open the Tool Selection window, and select the “Filter”.
From “Artistic”, select the “Manga Background” filter.
Adjust it with the slider.
If you use the Manga Background, you can easily create scenery that goes with a monochromatic illustration! Next, let's make radial lines for some intensity! From the Tool Selection window, choose Magic Wand tool.
Open the Settings window, and on the bottom, select “Specific Layer” at “Reference Layer”.
Tap Specific Layer, and select the layer with the panel layout.
Once that is done, only the range within the panels will be selected.
Add a new layer below the panel layout layer, and set the Blending Mode to “Invert”.
With the Filter, select “Radial Line” from “Draw”.
Move it into position with the center button, and adjust it with the slider on the bottom.
Now you can easily create radial lines! Next, I'll create speech bubbles for the character's all important dialogue! Open the Layer window, and add a new layer above the panel layer.
Open the Brush window, and select the “Outline”.
Tap the “Type” from “Brush Parameters”.
Turn on “Absolute Shadow Size”.
For the size of the edges, you can change that with the “Shadow Size” slider.
Now you can easily create speech bubbles with the Outline pen! There are also speech bubble materials in the Material tool's “Comic Effects (Gray)” folder, so try using that, too! Now to add the dialogue! From the Tool Selection window, select the “Text tool”.
Tap the canvas, and add in the text.
You can change the typeface from the Font button.
This time, I'm inputting the text with “GenEi Late Min v2”.
If you change the typeface to match the ambiance of the art, that will make it easier to convey the comic's story.
Select “Minamoji” from the Font List window.
Next, I'll add sound effects to enhance the comic.
Open the Material Tool, and select “Japanese (Gray)”.
Add sound effects that match the illustration! Readers are particularly sensitive towards sounds, so add sound effects to make the story easier to convey! done! thank you for your Watching!!.
