Standard Character Design Template for Procreate

This is a package of ten quality-made, high resolution (600dpi) template files for digital comic book and concept artists of all skill levels to use with Clip Studio Paint (Pro/EX).

The templates provide a measured work-space to create characters, vehicles, buildings, or anything else that requires a scaled unit of measurement. The templates use the imperial system of measurement (inches, feet), with the exception of the "Custom" template that allows you to write in your own scale and unit of measurement.

Here's a brief example of how the scales work: For the 1:12 Scale template, 1 inch on the page represents 12 inches (1 foot) in actual size. In this scale, a character that is 6 feet tall in real life will be represented as 6 inches tall on the page.

Features

Available In Two Print-Capable Resolutions

Included in the file package, are templates and brushes at print resolutions of 45DPI, and 300DPI.

Due to technical limitations, only the 12.9 inch iPad pro can use the 450DPI Files. The 300DPI files were created to be compatible with the 9.7 inch iPad pro.

Note: Using the 300DPI files on the 12.9inch iPad Pro allows for a greater number of layers to be used.

More Information about the two different resolutions

450DPI:
These files are the at the highest resolution currently possible for Procreate on the iPad Pro (12.9 inch model).

300DPI:
These files are for use in any of the following situations:

  • You are using the iPad Pro (9.7inch model)
  • You are using iPad Pro (12.9inch model), and you need the files to have a greater number of layers available.

A word or two about Print resolutions for Procreate files.

  • Due to Procreate file size limitations, 450DPI is currently the highest resolution possible. As trade off to having a print-resolution file, there are a maximum of 12 layers available to use in the single page template file.
  • In the 450DPI double page template file, the layer maximum is drastically reduced to 4 Layers. This is an unavoidable limitation imposed by Procreate on the iPad.

Changeable background colour

The background is on a separate color block layer, and can be changed to any color you require with a couple of clicks.

Changeable color and opacity for template information and markings

  • Template Markings Color: The template elements (Creator info, page info, crop marks etc.) are on one separate layer (with a transparent background) that can be changed in a couple of clicks.
  • Template Markings Opacity: If you require the template elements to be less or more prominent, change the opacity of the template element layers: they can be found within the “Page Template” layer.
