Girl Time

After using Photoshop for years, recently I rediscovered Manga Studio again. Tried it a few years ago, but couldn't get used to the interface being different than Photoshop. I did loved the linework though.

But recently some fellow cartoonists switched to Manga Studio and that triggered my curiosity. So I decided I would give it a decent try.

So the last couple of comics I drew in Manga Studio. The previous comic I still drew the borders and text in Photoshop, but for this comic I only colored in Photoshop. I do love the lines, I love all the brushes Manga Studio has, but their support for text is still sh*t.

So now I sketch and ink in Manga Studio, switch to Photoshop to do the texts, switch back to Manga Studio to hand-letter the texts and switch back to Photoshop to finally color the whole piece.
It's probably something I'll have to get used to.

I also wasn't a huge fan about how this comic turned out. It's a weird mixture in my head with "yes, I like how it looks" and "damn, I still can't draw humans for shit".
There is still a huge learning I'll have to do, before I'm able to draw humans in an easy and solid way.

*sigh*

    Which version of Manga Studio are you using? I haven’t seen any particular problems with doing text. I’m using the same font I had under gimp.

    At least you don’t have the quirks I’m working around trying to use MS under wine on linux.

    I think you’re being a bit tough on yourself. I like the look of this strip.
