    I am beginning my own manga and loved all the info on your site. Question, when you do the first draft before inking are you using the light box to ink on an entirely separate piece of paper?

    • Hi Zowie, I’ve since changed the way I make comics now as I’ve gotten MangaStudio EX4 and have been tweaking my process as I go along. But when I make my first draft it goes from really rough sketches in Photoshop, then another pass to solidify and correct panels, gestures, composition digitally too. I will only start inking once I have a handle on those.

      BUT, moving forward – I think I will be printing out rough sketches on copy paper, working out issues on the page then going back to inking digitally. Does that make sense? I still like the idea of merging traditional/digital tools and don’t want it to be completely lost in my process.

      Hope that’s helpful and thanks for checking out the site!
