It is Tuesday, the traditional dog-drawing day, and this dog encapsulates my recent life experiences
Photoshop CS6 or CC users: here’s something I just learned that you may find as helpful as I do. There’s an Adobe Labs program called Configurator that lets you make customized panels for your frequently used tools, menu items, or actions. Why not spend Presidents’ Day optimizing your workflow?
Happy Valentine’s Day, baby. Please undo this horrifying curse.
I did this last year and forgot about it and then saw it again and I still like it. Happy Valentine’s Day

Hello! Here is a little tip for Manga Studio 5 regarding one of my favorite features which isn’t immediately apparent. It has to do with vector layers and erasers.
First, create a vector layer by clicking the “New Vector Layer” at the bottom of the Layers palette:
Now, the secret of this technique lies in your eraser. Select the eraser tool and choose the pen you’d like to use, then check out the settings. Under “Erase,” select the option “Erase up to Intersection.”
Now, whenever you erase part of a line on the vector layer, it will erase the entire line up to the point where it intersects another line.
This makes it much easier to clean up stray lines, so you can be looser in your inking and still end up with a fairly tidy end drawing. Have fun!
