I finally broke the seal on Manga Studio and tried it out! It’s a very awesome program, like Photoshop and Sai’s very smart lovechild. While the brushes handle a lot like SAI, MS has Photoshop’s editing capabilities, not to mention much more in regard to, well, manga creating. It’s a very rich program, with tons of features. It will be a challenge getting used to how customizable the brushes are. I probably won’t do any “serious” art on it for a while, but it doesn’t have that much of a learning curve in regard to just illustrating.
I decided to test it out on new character: Zurak, the adopted son of my Blademaster Yoku and his mate, the Darkspear shaman Enoki (who belongs to gentlemancrow). He grew up among trolls as much as he did orcs, and I wanted his design to imply such. Mostly I just wanted to create a blonde bara orc so yeah I did.
Enoki knows his kid is the hottest of shit but he dares you to get past him to tap that :T
