Almost there – Manga Studio EX

copyright 2010 Wendy MartinI spent most of my work day dealing with other people’s project, so I was only able to get a few hours in on this.

Today, I added dimension to the house and base color to the stone walkway.

As you can see there is only a few more places that need attention, mainly the basket of apples and some bits of the old lady’s clothing.

I did find the patterns available in the program to be mostly unsuitable for my needs as they are more geared to manga cartoons. I have to investigate to see if there is a way to create one’s own patters similar to the way it can be done in Photoshop or Illustrator.

Most of my learning curve at this point is in find where tools are and how to get them to do what I want. From that point of view this program is very easy to learn to use (at least for someone familiar with other graphics programs.) I find the adjustments section of the program to be clunky and slow, but since my poor old dinosaur has only half the recommended RAM available, I will have to wait to see if the cluckiness is due to the low memory. Upgrading to a new MAC is somewhere in the distant future since the only reason I need to upgrade is to keep up with the new versions of software.

My MAC may be a collector’s item, but my husband found a true old computer while cleaning out the deceased uncle’s house. An old Commodore circa 1984 still in the original box. Now that’s OLD! (In computer years anyway.)
