How to draw a mandala in Clip Studio Paint

Click on this picture, to download a full-size .jpg you can print out and color.

Hello, everyone!

This afternoon, I was in the mood to draw a mandala, and I decided I would record my process as I worked.

Currently, I work almost entirely digitally, and when I create my mandalas, I use the super awesome art program, Clip Studio Paint.

Created for comic book and manga artists, the program is a joy to draw in, and has lots of time-saving tools, like the symmetry ruler, which you can see me using in the video.

Take a look at the video, and if you’d like to color the mandala I drew, you can download it as a free printable by clicking on the mandala image above.

Let me know what you think of the video and the mandala!

And now for something completely different…fan art!

Lately I’ve been trying to do warm-up drawings during the day—different fan art of characters that I enjoy. I have also been livestreaming the process over on my YouTube channel.

Here are the latest two, Salacious Crumb from Star Wars, and Lion-O, from the Thundercats.

 

If you like this sort of thing, please go follow me over on YouTube, and leave me a comment. I’d love to hear from you!

New coloring book for June: Easy Mandalas

New: Easy Mandala Coloring Book for Kids and Beginners

Well, it’s June 1, the school year is just about over here in my neck of the woods, and I have been looking toward summer. My son will be home, but I have plans to complete a few projects that I have in the works—despite the inevitable distractions my son will bring. 😀

One of those is a new coloring book. I am starting a new series of coloring books that will be geared toward colorists of all skill levels, from kids to seniors. The first one is almost ready to go. I just need to finish laying out the cover, and do a few last minute checks of the interior. Here’s the work-in-progress cover design so far.

What do you think?

Once it’s live, I’ll post a freebie coloring page for you from the book. Look for it to be available mid-June. But I’ll let you guys know. 😀

My latest coloring book, which will be available this month.

Celebrate Spring with a free coloring page

It’s April, and the daffodils, day lilies, and other early flowers are pushing their way up out of my garden. If only it was as warm as it looked out there! Despite the calendar, winter hasn’t quite given up and gone away yet. To cheer myself up, I made this coloring page yesterday, and I’d like to share it with you.

Earth Laughs in a Flower Coloring Page
Click on the image to grab this free coloring page as a printable .jpg or .pdf!

This coloring page features a lovely quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson, which reads, “Earth laughs in a flower.” I surrounded it by whimsical floral designs. If you’d like to color it, it’s available on my freebies page.

I’m also putting the finishing touches on a new mandala coloring book which will be available on Amazon this week. Stay tuned for the announcement!
