  • Tangential, but I can’t be arsed to start a new topic: Serif have also announced that their long-awaited InDesign challenger, Publisher, will go to public beta (for desktop) in August. I’m signed up for their beta program and will report back on tha…
  • Bah. There were line breaks when I posted this. Sorry!
  • Here's that video… https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jZHAk1a8vi0
  • Both Affinity Photo and Designer (their Illustrator replacement) are very capable and support colour-managed CMYK workflows. I was pretty confident that I could move my entire workflow over to them (they make a decent fist of opening .psd and .ai fi…
  • It’s safe to say that Ray Frenden likes it. Review/impressions here: http://frenden.com/post/167372727092/clip-studio-paint-the-ipad-pro-art-studio-house
  • Small correction… according to PJ Holden, infrequently of this parish, if you transfer files via iTunes and a cable (which all seems terribly last decade, TBH), the iOS version will happily handle multi-page CSP files. It's the import/export process…
  • Important caveat… getting files in and out of the app is a bit of a rigmarole and is best done via Dropbox, but the process doesn't appear to currently support multi-page CSP files.
  • Just updated to iOS11 and installed this. 

I'm very busy today so have only had time for the most cursory play around, but it very much appears to be the Real Deal. Very few interface concessions to iOS — it more or less looks like …
  • Also, when I hired the letterer who did RED ANGEL DRAGNET, he routinely tried to re-write my dialog and had to be admonished multiple times. WOW. Seriously. WOW. Every letterer I've ever heard of who tried that in a pro environment (who numbered a…
  • I'll confess the addition of animation tools gives me fear of Photoshop-style bloat. I'm generally unenthused by recent developments with Manga/Clip Studio.
  • No. Font design is a discipline all to itself. I'm a letterer, and for over a decade before that I worked in print design and production — the vast majority of my professional life has been spent working with type, I know type. I've tried to design …
  • Welcome back in any case! Thanks, Dwight! Honestly, I've never been away — I check in every couple of days at the outside, but if there's nothing for me to say, I've (unusually for the internet) opted to say nothing…
  • Necropost! I really am going to try to get more content on my blog this year… starting with a new post using a classic scene from Swamp Thing to show lettering decisions can directly affect the flow and pace of the story. Click here for the post… I'…
  • The actual drawing experience is lovely… it made me acutely aware of how much working on a Wacom feels a bit like drawing naturally, because working with the Pencil feels just like drawing naturally.
  • @JimCampbell yeah I have less issue with Medibang Paint. It will work and it has a HUGE array of comic construction tools that ProCreate doesn't have. ProCreate is good, but mostly it's for painting single illustrations. Yeah, ProCreate is just l…
  • You can just create a document at the correct pixel dimensions (ie: US comic at 300dpi = 2063x3031px). Obviously, I don't know how the rest of your workflow runs, so I don't know how important the physical dimensions are to you, but that's the only …
