Linear Shading Brushes Materials・The Making of Wall’s Shadow





Although necessary are showed in the video, we will explain more details in the text below.
Linear shading have a 2 type of brushes.
One is “Hatching”, one is “Crosshatching”.


Hatching brush can hatching freely with the following strokes.
There are three types of brush and each type have included different density.





So now add a shadow to the corner of the wall with a hatching brush.

Take a selection area of the surface with “auto-selection” tool,
make strokes by aligning the direction of the brush to the angle of the wall.





Also add shadows of the ceiling as well.
Changing the direction of the brush is somehow troublesome,
so try to practice to do the same angle at once.





Then make hatching shadow on the left side of the wall and also the ceiling which have same angle.
With two strokes, you can easily draw a crosshatching shadow with higher density.





Change the direction of the brush to the right and left walls and stroke with hatching brush.





Create a new layer (optional), then add dirt on the wall.





Scrape the left shadow with transparent color so it is differentiated from the right side.



Put a gradation tone on the right wall then completed!





However, changing the direction of the brush at Clip Studio Paint is troublesome.
In this case, use crosshatching brush for shading.





Make a new layer and stamp it moderately.





Click into Edit tab, then select free transform to adjust according to the angle of the wall.





Cut out the unnecessary parts.





If the shape is not good,
sharpen the shape by scraping with transparent color hatching brush.





Create a new layer and stamp the crosshatching on the ceiling.
To differentiate it from the shadow on the right side,
Use a coarse crosshatching brush.





Just like before, cut it according to the perspective with free transformation.





Create a new layer and repeat the same step for left wall.





Now the shading of the wall’s corner is completed!



In this way, the linear shading brushes can easily draws shadow.
The linear shading hard to sketch one by one, but digital make your work extremely easy.

Please give it a try.
