Clip Studio Paint is powerful art software that can help you create artistic work with its in-built material organizer, 3D integration, and group work features.

You’ll then create reusable changeable scenes and a 3D human character in Blender before exploring concept art, illustrations, comics, and how to create your own portfolio. The book features a glossary with brief explanations of all the main CSP functions.
