I highly reccomend you guys to buy this program! my.smithmicro.com/manga-studio…
Manga Studio (MS) - alias Clip Studio Paint Pro - beats Photoshop (PS) in many aspects and the few options what you are missing you can still get from the now free PS CS2
I rarely advertise things but I think it's a great deal! This price is ridiculously low for such a good program (especially if you compare to Adobe ones). I know many people can just "download
" programs from the net, but you should seriously consider to actually buy a very useful program instead of... "getting it for free", when it's so cheap and extremely worth its price! Companies need income to keep running the business, you know.
MS5 compared to MS5 Ex only lacks the ability to handle multipage projects (aka full comic stories), but for drawing it's great! The lineart is flawless, the blending options are really smooth, the brush options are very versatile , it has many additional options for comic making like frames, speedlines ect. It's vector layer options means you can draw, paint, work on it while it will keep it all as a vector you can tweak any time, it's amazing! I've been using it instead of Photoshop for months now and no regrets. ^^
Go and support a good company by buying their product for a very reasonable price. ^^
P.S: Dunno why the different name, At the company we have Clip Studio, at home I have Manga Studio 5 Ex, it's the same thing really.
