My gallery is a weird hodgepodge characters and fandoms, from surly plantdragons to odd half-insectoid monstrosities. When it comes to fanart, I tend to stray from topic to topic in hopes that I don't bore people with random obsessions.

I hope to keep improving so don't be surprised if I do weird experiments with textures and colors and stuff like that in Photoshop.

Got Manga Studio 5!

Journal Entry: Tue Mar 31, 2015, 9:31 PM

Not an April Fool's journal, unfortunately, (I'm one of those people where I always feel bad after I prank someone, no matter how benign) but I just wanted everyone to know that I now have an art program that can do vector inks.

Look at this beautiful feature it can do. LOOK AT IT.

I love Photoshop CS5, I really do (well obviously since all of my work is colored with it now), and the fact that I have a physical copy of a non-subscription Photoshop is something I really enjoy. It's just that Photoshop reallllllly sucks when it comes to line making.

My digital pictures up until now have been inked with Photoshop brushes, and let me tell you, it takes a damn long time and slows down the art progress by a lot.

These two pictures were Photoshop inked and I am not exaggerating when I say that the lines alone took a good solid day. Several hours inking Ripper Roo's face alone. And I've downloaded ink brushes. Still no dice. You have to double back and erase so many of your marks and it's annoying to know that your inks are still in pixel format and resizing will kill the quality. (I work big thankfully BUT STILL)

The ultimate choice was between SAI and Manga Studio, but Best Buy sort of made the decision for me since they happened to have the physical copy of Manga Studio 5 on sale soooo...

I think the game plan is to use this for inks and use Photoshop for everything else. I am curious about the 3D and perspective features this software has though.

This will hopefully make my artwork go a lot faster.

Thanks for the watch, friend. I'd return the favor but it seems I already have a couple of years ago.
Turquoisephoenix Featured By Owner May 2, 2015  Student Filmographer
You're quite welcome!

To be honest, I thought I was watching you before, checked your page, and realized that I never did. So I fixed my mistake. =)

Do you take requests?
Turquoisephoenix Featured By Owner Apr 13, 2015  Student Filmographer
Unless if I'm good friends with you, no. I've had problems with requests in the past so now it's either via commission or if I know you well enough. =)
