Chapter 3: Creating 3D Backgrounds in CSP

We have learned the basics of how to create brushes for our artistic needs. But there is something that is not discussed so much in the western market, which is using 3D in Clip Studio Paint (CSP).

From this chapter through to Chapter 6, Importing 3D Characters in CSP, we will learn how to use 3D to boost our speed and creativity and cover all the options for importing and creating assets and how to use them.

The chapters up to Chapter 6, Importing 3D Characters in CSP, are not strictly essential to use CSP; you can make beautiful drawings even without 3D. But 3D in CSP is a lesser-known feature that can give you a huge boost in your productivity.

This chapter will cover the following topics:

  • Working with 3D in CSP – pros and cons
  • How to create a 3D mesh
  • Adding 3D props to your CSP
