Manga Studio EX 4 Tutorials
Manga Studio allows you to sketch digitally using your mouse or tablet or you can scan in existing artwork using your scanner.
To get started, open a new page. Go to File - New - Page and select a page template. You can sketch digitally with your mouse or tablet. You can also scan in a sketch you've drawn. If you want to import your drawing using your scanner, go to File- Import - Twain.
In this case, we're going to sketch digitally. To get started, open a new page. Go to File - New - Page and select a page template. Then add a new layer. Rename the layer to Sketch layer so you can later easily identify it. Select the Color Model - Gray (8bits) and set the Output Attributes to 'Sketch'. Then hit 'OK'.
Go to Window - Tools to select the Toolbar. Then select the pencil tool. To access the pencil tool options, double click on the tool.
You can also access the different sketching tools through the Sketch tab in the Beginner's Assistant interface. To launch the Beginner's Assistant, go to Window - Beginner's Assistant or hit the F10 shortcut key. Go to Layer - New Layer and add a new Raster layer as described above and then select your sketch tool from the Sketch tab.
