As bonuses, you will learn to ink, color, and even digital paint with Manga Studio 5.

A short video showing Manga Studio 5 and what we will learn. You will notice, my Manga Studio 5 EX is dark colored. I show how to simple change the color theme in preferences. Also, Manga Studio 5 might have a few differences to 5 EX, but nothing major, so this course will work with Manga Studio 5.

Instructor Biography

Neil Fontaine, Art Instructor-Comic Artist-writer

I'm a best selling author on Amazon for "How to Draw Awesome Figures."

I studied art at different schools, one of them being a community college in San Jose, Ca. Over the years, subjects in art finally clicked. I teach these subjects in ways that make it easy to grasp. It's hard to brag about myself, but students have written me emails saying how they have learned more from me than they did in art schools, art schools such as Academy of Arts in San Franscico. That blew my mind because it's supposed to be a great school.

I'm also a writer that has sold novels. http://masteredit.info
