Arachnid finished colors

arachnidFinalColors

Okay so… I finished this guy’s colors up in Manga Studio.  I hadn’t used MS much for coloring, this was my first real test and I enjoyed it.  It works much the same way that Photoshop does minus a few things that aren’t there or I haven’t figured out yet. For example in Photoshop if you create a mask, you can use your brush tool to work directly on that channel.  In Manga Studios you use the eraser tool instead.  Does pretty much the same thing just messed with my head a bit because my go to was the brush tool and that just wasn’t working.  Another thing that bugged me was the radial gradient tool it just seems wanky compared to Photoshops.  Probably just need to get use to it.  Other than that I really dug it and plan on doing more coloring in MS.  If you were curious about the app… I’d give it a shot.

Oh and what exactly is the Unbroken Seal?  It’s a personal just-for-fun project that I hope to start developing, as a web comic, in the very near future.  Of course, that means all other work will come first, so it may be a bit sporadic with updates.  Wish me luck.

HulkOut

During my down time for the past couple of days, I have been doing some digital inking in Manga Studio 5.  I really like this program specifically for inking, (I haven’t yet completed any color work inside this program) It’s really smooth and the pressure sensitivity in conjunction with my Cintiq is pretty impressive. It feels natural, but allows me multiple undos for the multiple mistakes I regularly make. That is a requirement. Anyway, for this exercise I worked up a previous sketch I had done of the Thing and worked up a new Hulk.  Once I finished the Hulk I had to add some color to him, I did that in Adobe Photoshop.
