Standard Character Design Template for Clip Studio Paint

This is a package of ten quality-made, high resolution (600dpi) template files for digital comic book and concept artists of all skill levels to use with Clip Studio Paint (Pro/EX).

The templates provide a measured work-space to create characters, vehicles, buildings, or anything else that requires a scaled unit of measurement. The templates use the imperial system of measurement (inches, feet), with the exception of the "Custom" template that allows you to write in your own scale and unit of measurement.

Here's a brief example of how the scales work: For the 1:12 Scale template, 1 inch on the page represents 12 inches (1 foot) in actual size. In this scale, a character that is 6 feet tall in real life will be represented as 6 inches tall on the page.

Changeable background colour

The background is on a separate color block layer, and can be changed to any color you require with a couple of clicks.

Changeable color and opacity for template information and markings

  • Template Markings Color: The template elements (Creator info, page info, crop marks etc.) are on one separate layer (with a transparent background) that can be changed in a couple of clicks.
  • Template Markings Opacity: If you require the template elements to be less or more prominent, change the opacity of the template element layers: they can be found within the “Page Template” layer.
