What is Manga Studio?
Manga Studio is a painting/drawing program from CELSYS especially developed for the creation of digital comic art, especially anime and manga art. The standard art features found in similar programs are in Manga Studio: layers and multiple layer combination modes/effects, customizable brushes, configurable anti-aliasing, vector mapping, and 3D object support. Screen tones are included in the program for manga artists, as are pen presets designed to emulate traditional manga inking and line pens. The program is also compatible with graphic digitizers whose pens have pressure-sensing capabilities (for real-time increase/decrease of line widths in brushes with varying points).
Colors exist in presets as well as fully blendable palettes. Users can create their own colors and mix existing presets if desired for a wider color base. Since the program was developed specifically for the production of comic media, it also has tools that facilitate panel creation. Panel generation, layout, and resizing can all be done on the fly, with support for Bezier curves included. It also has a Layout tool that lets artists plan their work before they start drawing, specifying how many pages they intend to create, manage the sequence of pages already created, convert files into spreads or a particular number of pages, and so on.
