Thanks. It was very helpful, especially where to cut and not to cut the character.
I live in India, Here we don't really have stores where we can buy manga supplies. Can you please tell me an online store where i can get manga supplies at low cost?

I have a question~What's the difference between Manga Studio 4/5 and Manga Studio EX4/5?

:iconeverglaves:
Everglaves Featured By Owner Feb 22, 2014  Professional Digital Artist
EX are the professional versions of the software and have more power and come complete with allot of resoures etc.  The regular 4 and 5 
are the basic versions of EX and would be great as a starting program.  I only just recently got Manga Studio 5EX myself.

I think I have a question :) When you print your books, do you always choose black and white option? ( I'm asking because one of the printing companies had a very confusing FAQ, they stated that using something else than black counts as using a color and I was wondering how the grey tones are treated) I have already contacted the company to ask but I was still wondering if you print yours as black and white :) :hug:

It's always b/w, yes. Grey tones are printed with black ink, only lighter. ^^b
Are you planning a doujinshi, per chance? *3*;

larienne Featured By Owner Jan 19, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
uhh the fandom is not something super popular at the moment I guess... LOTR ArwenxAragorn cross... (I just love them so much and they don't get enough appreciation I think.. and it's something to celebrate my thesis since it was on LOTR and elves. I have 45 pages planned so far, longer than I planned XD) I would love to do Bleach too in the future if this goes good ; o ;  There will also be a short Chobits doujin since I agreed to join in with some friends : D

I'm also in the middle of planning out a new story, although I still need to work around some plotholes. Why do I need to come up with such complicated stories..?? orz *headdesk*

awwwww ; o ; I will try, I will do my best! I understand you now, working on script can be a pain in the neck XD but your stories are beautiful ; o ; I only have UlquiHime book but I bet they are all wonderful!!!


Actually, I was planning to ask you to do a guest art for this LOTR story, but I don't think you would have time or if this is anything you like :( (I always like unpopular or dead fnadoms ORZ) This would be a dream come true to be in the same book with you like that and it would mean more than even making any profit out of it. I was planning to ask you since last year but I was too shy and I'm nowhere near your level. Feel invited dear but if you are busy or don't feel like it that's absolutely fine and I understand :) I feel honored that you speak to me at all ; o ; <3 this already made my year XD

Awesome job, this is really helpful!  And I liked the touch-line rule thing you mentioned, I actually learned about that the other day (I think the term they used was "visual tangent") and I've been trying hard to avoid it.

Actually this is VERY useful to anyone up to the level of moderate experince in drawing comics. Some of these things I knew and a few I didn't. Most of the things I knew I learned because "it felt right/wrong" and applied those principles in my process.

Very great mini-guide! I'd recommend it all comic artists.
