Here is a short video tutorial I created showing how to create custom brushes in Manga Studio 5. One major problem I kept running into was that every time I created a new brush, it would only paint in black. I finally figured out the simple trick on how to make a custom brush in Manga Studio paint in color. Shame on Smith Micro for not making this clearer! But I can’t stay mad you Manga Studio…
I discovered Manga Studio about a year and a half ago, and I believe it’s helped bring my artwork to a new level – and made the act of drawing so much more enjoyable and intuitive.
But there are a couple of things about Manga Studio that aren’t as intuitive as Adobe Photoshop. The brush engine is far more complex (which can be a good thing), which makes for some frustrating hair-pulling at first glance.
