Manga Studio EX Tutorial: From Sketch to FinishFull page tutorial for a very lovely friend :iconjennycah:. I feel terribly guilty for not being around lately and for not being around to teach her the ropes of this wonderful program. I am going to use bullet points T3T<3 Make it easier if I have to refer back in the tutorial.
The set up. Click the sideways arrow and hide the beginners assistant. If you want this program to work it's best you'll have to use it the way it's meant to be used. The beginners assistant is fine when you are beginning but when you want to get more serious then this is the tutorial you need. Image below shows where said arrow is.
With this closed now go to window as marked in red.
Below are the windows you will need opened. So in the window tab enable, Tool Options, Navigator, Colour and Layers.
I already have my story prepared but I will walk through it anyway. Go to File>>

This tutorial set will cover text and how to do comic style wavy text with a white outline. Panels dones with the panel ruler so when you draw in the panel nothing goes outside said panel without the need for selection tool. Screentones, custom tones and other ways to tone. Inking if I get far enough. And 3D materials for setting up scenes.
FIRST STEP: MAKE YOUR DPI 1200!!! You can change those at any point using layers alone! I'll elaborate more later.
In the below image. Hide beginners mode. Open the Navigation window, Colour, Layers and Tool Options in the Window Tab.
Where I have marked red go to the tab called Rulers. Left click and the option shown will appear. Choose Panel Ruler Layer.
In the image below, use the two tools pointed to, to cut and adjust your panels.

An excellent set of Manga Studio 4 tutorials, ranging from the Debut to the EX version. Brought to you by Doug Hills in conjunction with Smith Micro. Bookmark on YouTube.
This series is good because the speaker is articulate, and the actions on the screen follow commands. It is difficult to find quality tutorials that are not merely process pieces or showcasing artwork, but this set goes above and beyond -- it actually focuses on the tools of the program and illustrates how they can be applied! Enjoy, and make sure to thank him on his video pages!

Carring on from yesterdays tutorial with panelling.
In the panel you intend to use for you building or 3D object use the tool shown in the red square. Options will appear though I hid mine for now to show you what the 3D plane looks like. When you select the tool click and drag to the borders of your panel.
Now the properties panel will open for what you wish to put in this area. This can range from guns to motor bikes to housing and city scapes. The best part however is that you can build your OWN 3D objects to place in here. I'm going to show you how to arrange in perspective, change to line art only or line art and toning. Before I go on this is for any trolls:
I am not endorsing cutting corners or showing how to be lazy. Manga studio allows you to be a one artist team. This is go
Hosting Your Own WebcomicWhat is Web HostingHosting Your Own Webcomic3 months ago in Personal More Like This
With the previously discussed closure of InkBlazers, there are many authors looking for a new home to move to. While several are going to Tapastic, there are still some who may want to break free of reliance on communities for their primary source of income, and create their own websites.
Web Hosting is, in a nutshell, a service-based where you get space on someone else's server to display (host) your own website.
When you buy web hosting services from a company, you are essentially buying your own little piece of the Internet.
There are other ways to have a presence on the Internet, but having your own website allows you greater control over how things look and work.
Most paid web hosting offer things such as the following in their packages:
Space for your website*
Access to the website files using FTP
The ability to access your website using a domain name
The ability to utilize scripting languages such as PHP o

I will show you also how to auto screentone speech bubbles for that dark foreboding feeling.
Click on the text tool, it's the icon that looks like the letter A. Click on your art work in the panel area you wish to use text. The properties panel will appear as above. Where I have pointed out in red, tick for out line. Change the number up or down for the thickness of the white outline.
Tick and adjust the other options for other effects. Now for the speech bubble click where I marked in red the tab called Dialogue Balloon Settings.
Click generate Dialogue Balloon and a new window will appear

Looking for new team members + info EDIT SCROLLOkay guys, I know there was a journal before this and there was a misunderstanding, my apologies. Zing is not leaving the team, but Yuji is no longer part of this.Looking for new team members + info EDIT SCROLL3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Yuji has quit SSS Warriorcats so he is no longer working on it or part of it.
wanton-fox and me, Aluri are the new owners of it now, and we decided to look for new colorers, inbetweeners or animaters, as we're the only two left on the team.
I, Aluri am basically the director of SSS Warriorcats now. I am dealing with the files. When you finished an animated, colored or inbetweened scene you can send them to me and I will judge them and forward them to wanton-fox. I am basically the main animator now. I also deal with applications.
wanton-fox basically deals with the storyboard right now and he keeps -the- file. He also animates, colors and in-betweens.
Iron-Zing deals with the background characters and sometimes other stuff that still has to be don
Adoptables F.A.Q.Some info for who don't know about adoptables \;v;/ I hope it helps >v<Adoptables F.A.Q.1 year ago in Personal More Like This
What is Adoptable?
Adoptables are characters design made by an Artist that put them for sale and can be adopted by other people (with money or other type of offer ) as their personal Character. Then the new character's owner can create name , personality , background story and change a little the outfit as it's own character.
Why people buy Adoptables?People can do their personal character by themselves
Sometimes some people have a story or a character in mind and the only thing they need is something that figure out what thay have in mind and if they found a character made by other people , maybe can be what they search ;v;
Sure people can do the caracters by themselve ( and many many people do that >v< ) but sometimes one artist can do the exact thing they are looking for
But some adoptables are expensive more than n

ALSO DISCLAIMER; I have only been tabling for about 3 years, I am by no means a professional, or claim to know everything about tabling, or that my way of tabling is the only way. This is more of just to guide people who have never tabled before, or other people who table who would like to try different things!
PART ONE - APPLYING, PORTFOLIOS, AND PREPARATIONS
Alright! The first step of any artist who plans to sell is deciding to sell! Once you have chosen you would like to pursue tabling at a con, whether for fun, for profit, or both (lets hope for both!!), there are several steps you must take even before applying.

Manga Studio: Why Are my tones showing up gray?I had this problem for so long and the solution is so very simple. So below is what you see while you work but you zoom in and you see tones. You export and it's still grey right? Well there's only one small step to do.Manga Studio: Why Are my tones showing up gray?3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Go to the layers panel where the screentone layer is. Right click, go to rasterize and click. When it asks to keep original yes or no, select 'Yes' just in case you need to change the dot size. And you should then see this as a result and it should be the same when exporting.
I see this problem often on DA where everything else like materials is showing up screentone and the rest of the art seems to be greyscale painting and it looks odd. The solution is simple. Like photoshop all the layers need to be rasterized for export. I like to put my tones in a folder since it doubles up so much. There is also the method of using tones as a pen that I
Warrior Cats onlineI'm making quite some progress on my online game. But I need testers~Warrior Cats online3 years ago in Personal More Like This
My online game Warrior cats online is mostly Roleplay based- -of course. This is also what made me create it. There's not a lot to do; you just get to be a cat and design your own looks as cat.
You star off as a kitten. You get to choose where you're born- -A twoleg nest, somewhere as rogue, or inside one of the four clans.
As you're a kit though, you become an apprentice quite soon. You will get a mentor who will teach you all about the clan life, of as kittypet or rogue; you just grow up. XD
After like two weeks of REAL time, you get your test if you're good to be a warrior, and your leader will give you your warrior name.
Things may happen though, and you have to be careful, because if you die, you're dead. Obviously. Then you can choose to go to StarClan or create a new character.
The leader will receive nine lives. They can make up the warrior names, too. They can also choose to randomize the names, but

Resources/Advice-Stuff to Listen to While DrawingThis is a series of journals that I've wanted to make for a while, just to document all the things that have been of use to me and might be of use to others. No one has to read these, though! These can just sit here for future reference if anyone needs them.Resources/Advice-Stuff to Listen to While Drawing2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Audio Books: Audio books are one of my favorite things to listen to while drawing! They are several hours long and—if the book is interesting—they will keep you motivated and focused for long periods of times.
My favorite Audio versions of books are: 1) ANYTHING by Jon Acuff because he is a hilarious person and he reads the books himself, 2) The Lunar Chronicles, 3) The Hunger Games, 4) The Everlasting Man (Narrator: John Robbins), 5) Orthodoxy (Narrator: Simon Vance), and 5) Mere Christianity (Narrator: Geoffrey Howard).
Those are my favorite audio versions of books. I like their readers a lot. There are other books I like that didn't have great adaptations (Cheesy 90's background music! ) or that I can't listen to f
