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.Manga Studio EX Tutorial: From Sketch to Finish3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
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>>

I don't swim where I can't see the bottom.
This time we have a rather loose contest theme - as another Autumn approaches, and the rainy days with it, let's bring this water in. Whether it be salt water in an ocean or a massive wall of rain, your submission must have a huge amounts of water in it. Well, for a 2" tall fairy, a bowl of water might be a lot, if you think of it. But for a giant, ain't no little puddle going to work in this contest.
Obviously enough, since this group is called this and not that, and our mood is exactly what it is, you need to think about it, too.
Deadline: the 25th of October 2014.
Limit of submissions: one piece per member.
The entry must be prepared for the contest precisely.

So you want to be a CV...Sometimes I like to wander through the communityrelations group, and I always come across comments from people so willing to become volunteers, I constantly come across people who say "Applied for ___ gallery!", "I can't wait to be 18 to apply!", "I so want to be on the team!", there are some who list the complete CR roster in their personal profiles, who openly say in their tagline, signatures or devIDs "Hoping to be a CV one day", etc. This is specially evident in the The Community Relations Team journal, where the opening positions are listed.So you want to be a CV...3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
To those people: take this journal just as a personal opinion and a friendly advice from a fellow community member, someone who loves the community and is willing to contribute and give back the way one can. This comes from my personal experience, shouldn't be taken as the whole Community Relations nor deviantArt's official stance.

Hosting a contest on dA is a really fun way to inspire other artists and do something positive for the community.
