The Art of Charlie Chan Hock Chye
First thing: please buy Sonny Liew's latest book. It's really, really good.
I'm pleased to say this is the first time I managed to do the entire strip, including colour, in Manga Studio (even yesterday's had a bit of Photoshop tweaking). I opened it in Photoshop and was about to start fiddling with a few things, and I thought no, sod it, just let it stand.
Tried adding screentones in MS for the first time (now that I finally figured out how to install the "Materials" folder - I'd been getting it wrong for months and wondering why nothing happened). While adding tones is far from intuitive, I got there in the end.
I should probably be writing all this stuff down as I work it out, I'll forget it all in a week otherwise...
