Book Description

In Detail

Using Manga Studio for creating comics is an enriching experience. Instead of using graphite and ink, we can get creative with digital marking tools. Once you've got to grips with the basic use of these tools, creating comics digitally is just as expressive and fun as creating them on paper.

"Manga Studio Beginner's Guide" is for beginner comic artists and for experienced artists who are new to Manga Studio. The book delves into the methods of creating a comic, from idea, character, script, and rough layouts, all the way to the finished art.

We start with a blank screen. Then, after making some rough sketches and adding finer details to the art, we will achieve a finished page of our comic.

Learn how to leverage the features of Manga Studio to create your best work. When Manga Studio falters, you will learn various work-arounds to overcome them. Find out how to enhance lettering and 3-D objects created by Manga studio with the help of some complementing programs. Learn how to call up reference images easier than using a web browser.

No matter what character you are creating - superheroes, sci-fi, fantasy, real-world, or Manga - "Manga Studio Beginner's Guide" will be your go-to book for creating comics.


Using a step-by-step approach, this book will lead you through the process of building up complex, multi-page comic/Manga art, along with industry insights along the way.
