Today I finally summoned up the nerve to try Manga Studio's perspective tools (see panel 1). Yow! I get why people make a fuss about them. I haven't figured out how to make the lines go at regular intervals yet (the windows there are spaced by eye) but as a first attempt I was well pleased, oh yes I was.
The inking continues to be a source of frustration; I'm trying a different Frenden brush every day but none of them feel right or look natural to me. I will persevere. The plan is to see out the month with these experiments before going back to good ol' paper and ink in April.
I can see a possible future in which I pencil in MS5 and ink on paper. Those perspective tools. Again, I say yow.
