Ninja Turtle

This has practically been over 3 months in the making. On and off, on my iPad. Not because it was hard to produce, but because I lost interest and towards the end, had to really push myself towards finishing it. And so, with some down time today at work while I waited for one of our vans to be repaired, I went at it. No stylus. Just me, and my iPad. Coloring. With my finger.

Am I happy I finished it? Yes. Totally.

Returning to The Doctor

And then I stopped.

Creating Auto Actions in Manga Studio EX5

One of the most powerful features of Manga Studio is the Actions feature, or as it's known in version 5, Auto Actions. Actions are basically a set of automated tasks you record into Manga Studio which can be played back, in order, at any time. Actions are fantastic time savers which can help you do anything from prepping a file for printing, coloring, inking, or saving out in a specific format or size, to even creating certain types of layers for you automatically. Because it's one of the most overlooked features of the App, in this tutorial, I'm going to show you how easy it is to make your very own actions. Once you get the hang of it, you will wonder how you ever got by without them. Let's begin!
