This was fun. I finally upgraded to Manga Studio 5 EX today so I can start getting a feel for it, and was told that I needed to get the Frenden brushes immediately. I did a quick version of The Crippler from my thesis project from CCS using the Frenden Manga Studio 5 Pencilling, Inking, & Painting Brushes and his Manga Studio 5 Wash Brushes, along with my new Monoprice Display Tablet. Not horrible for my first time! It does have a natural feel to it also, which I appreciate.
I have so many projects backed up that I think I’m going to have to go back to digital for awhile so I can get them all done. This took me less than an hour to do despite never having used any of the above tools before, so I think this will help tremendously.
