If I described the production of Dreamside's art as "time-consuming," it would be quite an understatement. Every so often, when I'm working on repetitive tasks, I look for ways to cut down on the production time through automation. Luckily, working digitally has such advantages.
Nothing has taken more drawing time than the Dream Girl's rainbow hair. It's complex for many reasons. So, I naturally examined Clip Studio's capable brush system to see if I could use it to speed up the drawing process while maintaining the hair design's iconic and decorative beauty.
Sure enough, after about a week or two of experiments, I found a solution I think works pretty well! Check out the video to learn more about it.
