I’m experimenting with Manga Studio. It has some cool and handy features in it, like setting certain layers up as references and IGNORING the other layers. This is very handy for doing a cel style. It’s actually something I WISHED Photoshop had for years, so when I figured it out in MS, I’ve been all over it. It’s so much EASIER to do now, although still easy for me to lose time and overdraw things, because I’m using the same tools I use to INK with!
I’ve also begun creating props. Props are items I store in Manga Studio as a material that I can drop into a scene for added elements when there’s a large empty area. I think I’m going to redo my bush prop, but the half a dozen rocks I drew and flat colored, they come out SO awesome, as you can see. I can reuse that rock in combination with the other rocks and they’ll rarely look the same and can be adjusted to any size I need. I like my rocks!
