The holiday madness is upon us once again. One trip to the mall is enough to remind me that I have Amazon Prime and should be taking advantage of it.

So, this is my first attempt at drawing in Manga Studio. I’ve been drawing in Photoshop for awhile, and before that I was using Adobe Illustrator. They’re all great programs, but Manga Studio is specifically made for drawing comics, so it’s got a lot of features the others don’t, while eliminating functions that cartoonists aren’t going to need. So far so good, although when I run into trouble I’m finding it is much easier to Google up an answer to a Photoshop problem than for Manga Studio.
