Fido the Cat
More footling in Manga Studio. I'm beginning to like the lettering - not quite as flexible as Illustrator for the actual text, but the balloon shapes are very organic and easy to fiddle with (in Illustrator I have a folder full of templates I dip in and out of, but in MS I can draw each balloon on the fly, and it comes out looking roughly like what I would do by hand).
The inking was done with Frenden's "Inker - Nib Stiff", which I like better than the one I used yesterday, though still not there. I will continue to try out other tools and/or tweak existing ones. I picked up a set of brushes from Armin Nelsyn (the Natural Media Inkers set) which looks promising.
