Using Manga Studio to create comics is an enriching experience. Instead of using graphite and ink, Manga Studio artists can get creative with digital marking tools. When users have got to grips with the basic use of these tools, creating comics digitally is just as expressive and fun as creating them on paper.

Manga Studio 5 Beginner's Guide is a hands-on-guide, and a very effective tool for the newbie Manga Studio users, to create amazing characters with ease. The book delves into the methods of creating a comic, from idea, character, script, and rough layouts, all the way to the finished art.

Manga Studio 5 Beginner's Guide shows readers enhanced lettering and 3D objects created by Manga studio with the help of some complementary programs. It also shows readers how to call up reference images easier than using a web browser. This practical book follows a step-by-step approach that will lead the reader through the process of building up complex, multi-page comic/Manga art, along with industry insights along the way.

Chapter 1: Installing and Setting up Manga Studio 5
