Manga Studio for Dummies by Doug HillsI am an idiot. I bought this book without first checking to see that the version(s) of Manga Studio this book covers was the same version of Manga Studio I bought. It wasnt. This book deals with Manga Studio Debut and Manga Studio EX. I bought Manga Studio 5; a much more recent iteration. As I said, I am an idiot.
Still, once Id realised my mistake, I carried on reading anyway. After all, I thought, the software cant have changed that much, surely? There must be plenty of crossover, right?
Wrong! Between EX and 5 the software has changed almost completely. There is some crossover but only about 20%, maybe. As I said, though, I should have checked. Its not the authors fault.
Having now finished the book I can honestly say that I did get something out of it, albeit not as much as Id hoped. There is advice in here that applies to all artists, whether theyre working digitally or more traditionally. The book is clearly written in an easy-to-understand conversational style and is even quite funny in places.
I did have to raise an eyebrow, though, as the author comes right out and says a few times that he doesnt understand the purpose of some features. Maybe, if youre writing a book about it, you might want to find out? Just a thought...
If you have the right bit of software, this book is probably worth four stars. If, like me, you dont, then its probably only worth about two. Ive averaged these scores out to give it a three star rating, largely because most people going out and buying a copy of this software will buy the most recent version (like I did) which limits the usefulness of this book going forward. If they released a revised version, Id buy it in a heartbeat.
How To Quickly Import Multiple Brushes Into Manga Studio 5 (Clip Studio Paint)
Installation to Start-up
Manga Studio 5, a new upgrade, promises an even greater degree of creativity and functionality. Users can scan existing artwork or they can draw from scratch using a mouse or preferably a pen and tablet. Manga Studio 5 is a bit application with multi-core CPU support, which means it can handle high-definition and multi-layered art projects more smoothly than previous versions. Its interface overhaul and new graphics engine lets artists draw and paint more naturally, the company says. A new, customizeable interface lets artists set up a personal workflow that best fits their projects. Users can set their own brush shapes, canvas textures, and paint expressions, and save them as personal settings. With this new version, and for the first time, users can incorporate color into their projects, so they no longer need to rely on other drawing and painting programs to professionally color their work.
With Smith Micro offering support and download versions of Clip Studio Paint next week, it becomes unclear what will happen with Celsys' English language site clipstudio. Manga Studio and Clip Studio Paint are the exact same applications. Clip Studio Paint will simply be the digital download version of Manga Studio. The Manga Studio website and branding will remain the same and we will continue to promote the Manga Studio brand for both the DVD and download versions. We will also be receiving updates sooner and will release updates for both Manga Studio and Clip Studio Paint at the same time. It's good to see that Japanese developer Celsys and Smith Micro have reached an agreement to settle what has been one of the oddest episodes in consumer software sales that I've ever witnessed. The lack of a download version of Manga Studio has no doubt dampened sales since Celsys decided to self-market the English language downloadable version of its popular art program Clip Studio Paint.
Clip Studio Paint being the digital version and Manga Studio the physical version. Not to mention: you can just download the installer on the celsys website. The heck. So you can just download it from there and update it as normal? That's pretty misleading that they'd even offer the EDS at all then.
