Amazing Penciling and Inking Tools

Manga Studio offers more versatility and flexibility than any other application when drawing, penciling and inking. It is the standard tool for graphic illustrators as well as comic and manga artists. Create original sketches using your mouse or draw naturally with a Pen Tablet. Use scans of your existing paper artwork or import images or photos for use creations. Draw using a suite of familiar tools including pens, pencils, brushes and selection tools. With vector mapping technology and smart pen pressure sensing, Manga Studio gives you incredible sensation of drawing on paper – no other tool can imitate this realistic sensation. Manga Studio also allows you to work on vector layers to create resolution independent images.

Set up a Personal Work Flow

Manga Studio was written with artists' workflow at the very top of the priority list. All of the most used tools - pens, pencils, erasers, rulers, pattern brushes and selection tools are all right at your fingertips. Customize your own brush shapes, canvas textures, paint expressions and more and then save those as your personal settings.

Color your Artwork

Manga Studio is your all in one graphic illustration creation solution. Save time and money by no longer having to use other applications to professionally color your artwork.

Blend colors naturally as if you were mixing them with your own fingers using the color blend options.
