I’m just curious, are you laying down these screen tones by hand or are you using “Manga Studio” software or some such?
I’m using Manga Studio – but with the idea that I want it to look hand done… is it working? hopefully?
When I first started using Manga Studio I was definitely going overboard a lot. I’m now trying to use a more minimalistic or conservative approach (except maybe in that 3rd panel).
Well, since I had to ask I guess the screens must be looking like they could possibly be hand done. I am thinking of getting Manga Studio myself however I’m a computer illiterate and don’t even have Photo shop. Do you need Photo shop to use Manga Studio? I know this is a stupid question but just consider it’s source.
Not a stupid question at all. You don’t *need* to have photoshop to work in Manga Studio, but I find that having both helps a lot. I’m doing all my toning in Manga Studio then exporting the file to be imported into Photoshop for final lettering and getting it ready for web/print. I *think* you can do everything I’m doing in Photoshop in Manga Studio proper but this is the way I’m working. I may experiment with that, come to mention it. Just in case Manga Studio can do it better…
WOW, this is looking incredible, really! Someday I’ll learn to do a wee, wee bit of what you wizards can do…
aw, steve! you should save that comment for tomorrow’s page! this page is probably the WORST page i’ve done so far in this book. i’m not very happy with it. can you tell? LOL
actually this page is the one that “broke the camel’s back” so to speak. basically i’ve made a promise to myself to never make a page this horrible and boring again!
I don’t think it’s that horrible at all Cat! It does the job and I love that Jinn smashing through the roof, also sweatdrop!
