Joint development for exclusive font “Clip Studio Comic” for Clip Studio Paint For richer dialogue expression

(March 2024)

Clip Studio Paint Ver. 3.0, which was released in March 2024, includes Clip Studio Comic, an exclusive font for Clip Studio Paint, that was developed in collaboration with IWATA CORPORATION.

Clip Studio Comic has a handwritten feel to appeal to comic creators, and includes four randomly appearing alternate contextual glyphs for each character. The ability to reproduce text as if it were handwritten allows for richer dialogue expression in comics, providing users with a wider range of expressive capabilities for their comic projects. This comic font can be used commercially for published comics, and is compatible with 27* languages.

Features of Clip Studio Comic
■ Based on characters drawn with Clip Studio Paint brushes, the font balances a handwritten look with readability

■ Includes randomized alternate contextual glyphs

■ Automatically changes the single capital “I” to a crossbar I
