Comic art suggestions
I’ve been drawing black and white comics and manga using Manga Studio 5 and Clip Studio Paint, trying to reach the quality of art in manga graphic novels. I enjoyed the Manga Artist edition (issue 121) and have a suggestion for future editions.
You do loads of excellent articles on creating colour artwork, but how about more tutorials on black and white digital art? For example, how to use screen tones effectively, tone scraping effects, using textures and patterns, effect lines for dynamic scenes, abstract backgrounds, representing emotion and so on. Ryan Davidson, via email Claire replies Great ideas Ryan, I’ll think about these for future editions. One special edition that you might like to take a look at is our new Comic Artist magazine. It’s a collection of our best comic art from past issues of ImagineFX and I’m sure you’ll find a lot of good stuff in there. See more info about this on page 19.
