Manga Studio 5 Tip

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!

Atomic Robo Volume 9 AAAHHHHH!!!!

swegener:

Anyone who cares about SPOILERS and hasn’t yet read the last issue of Atomic Robo Vol.8 SHOULD NOT go any further. Are we clear? Alright.

PS: Oh come ON! Get over your damn nerd OCD and peek below the break. I posted some boss new artwork.

Maybe …maybe just scroll through it quickly so you don’t accidentally read any words.

One reason I’ve been so busy lately is that I recently starting coloring Atomic Robo. Scott’s artwork is a lot of fun to color (lots of great shapes in there). Check out the first panel in the last page in that preview! There’s so much action! Anyway, it’s fun, and there are robots and cowboys, so I hope you all check it out when it’s released.

I’m putting together digital versions of my books and recalled all the time I spent putting fake book titles on this shelf. It’s not really legible in the print version so here’s a screenshot. Click through to see it full-size.
Bonus tidbit: the three books between “Reading” and “Responsibility Cat” are the three volumes of Beartato comics. Thus the book you are reading… is in the book you are reading. Did I just blow your mind

WHAT IS GOBLIN WEEK.
Goblin Week is a thing started by me last year as an excuse for frantic and uncritical creativity for myself and others. Goblin Week is the reason for the season.
YOU can participate in Goblin Week, AND IN FACT I INSIST THAT YOU DO. Beginning on JANUARY NINETEENTH and ending on JANUARY TWENTY-FIFTH, you should consider putting into the world as many goblin-related creative items as is feasible for you. The tag #goblinweek is at your disposal on tumblr and on twitter, and both accounts will do their best to publicize the goblin-week-relevant works of all comers.
WHAT DOES “GOBLIN” MEAN TO YOU. GOBLIN WEEK IS ABOUT YOU. FOLLOW YOUR HEART.
ANOTHER THING THAT WILL BE HAPPENING FOR THIS YEAR’S GOBLIN WEEK is the GOBLIN WEEK 2014 ZINE, which will be detailed further in the near future. But broadly: the zine will be available for preorder on Goblin Week and no later. The emphasis as to contents will be on intensity and quantity. Your contributions will be extremely welcome BUT NOT ACCEPTED UNTIL JANUARY NINETEENTH THE FIRST DAY OF GOBLIN WEEK 2014.
WHETHER YOU PARTICIPATE OR NOT I HOPE THIS IS FUN FOR YOU

It’s Goblin Week!
