In Detail

Using Manga Studio for creating comics is an enriching experience. Instead of using graphite and ink, we can get creative with digital marking tools. Once you’ve got to grips with the basic use of these tools, creating comics digitally is just as expressive and fun as creating them on paper.

"Manga Studio Beginner's Guide" is for beginner comic artists and for experienced artists who are new to Manga Studio. The book delves into the methods of creating a comic, from idea, character, script, and rough layouts, all the way to the finished art.

We start with a blank screen. Then, after making some rough sketches and adding finer details to the art, we will achieve a finished page of our comic.

Learn how to leverage the features of Manga Studio to create your best work. When Manga Studio falters, you will learn various work-arounds to overcome them. Find out how to enhance lettering and 3-D objects created by Manga studio with the help of some complementing programs. Learn how to call up reference images easier than using a web browser.

No matter what character you are creating - superheroes, sci-fi, fantasy, real-world, or Manga - "Manga Studio Beginner’s Guide" will be your go-to book for creating comics.


Using a step-by-step approach, this book will lead you through the process of building up complex, multi-page comic/Manga art, along with industry insights along the way.

Who this book is for

"Manga Studio Beginner's Guide" is for beginners in comic creation. The more you know about how comics are made, the better you will be, but it's not essential to get the most out of this book. Even if you're a professional comic artist, this book will get you up to speed on using Manga Studio 5.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A great way to learn Manga Studio 5 22. Mai 2014
Von Heleen Durston - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition
Manga Studio 5 is a program distributed by Smith Micro that is available in 2 versions, Regular and EX. (Apparently, Manga Studio was also available under the name of Clip Studio Paint Pro (Manga Studio) and Clip Studio Paint EX (Manga Studio EX).) Manga Studio 5 Beginner’s Guide was written by Michael Rhodes and he does an excellent job of explaining the ins and outs of Manga Studio. The book was published by Packt Publishing which provides a webpage for the book on their site:

The book follows using the Manga Studio (Clip Studio Paint Pro) version, though it does contain one chapter about the extra capabilities available in the EX version. Now that you are thoroughly confused let me say that I was able to use the book with the Smith Micro trial download which provides you with both versions of Manga Studio. I also used Manga Studio 4 EX with this book, and while the interfaces are different which may lead to some menu-hunting for commands, you can still learn a lot from this book regarding that version of the software.

I am a big fan of the Manga style of comics; but I am also an awful artist. I was hoping that this program might dig up some hidden talent. Unfortunately, the answer is no. Both the book and the program expect you to be able to draw. The book does an excellent job of bringing artists up to speed on Manga Studio 5. Manga Studio 5 is very customizable and this beginner’s guide explains how to create various unique brushes and page styles.

The book mentions a colored-pdf supplement that provides colored pictures of the books graphics. I was able to download this earlier; but it doesn’t seem to be available now, which is a shame since it really helped me with understanding the book. The book also mentions that support files are available; but I was never able to find them.

If you are interested in drawing Manga and want to learn how to use Manga Studio 5 then Manga Studio 5 Beginner’s Guide by Michael Rhodes is a great starting point.

5.0 von 5 Sternen NOT JUST FOR BEGINNERS 23. Juni 2014
Von Jeff Welborn - Veröffentlicht auf
This is a great book and while I don't consider myself a Manga Studio "beginner", I'm no expert either. I was able to pick up a few new tricks from this book. It's incredibly thorough in it's explanation of the various tools, modes, and options. I really wish I could have read it a few years ago while I was trying to teach myself Manga Studio. I really would have saved myself a lot of time and sped up the learning process quite a bit.

First things first: The cover. While I mean no disrespect to the Illustrator I feel it's a poor representation of what Manga Studio can do. I think a stronger graphic would have been one graphic in various stages of completion. That would get the message across that you can do it all with Manga Studio. Imagine a generic hero or heroine in a 4 or 5 panels. The first panel would be a rough pencil sketch, then a panel for black and white inks, then one for colors and the last could be a fully painted version. All done with Manga Studio's wide array of tools.

On to the good stuff: The book is written in a casual, approachable manner that makes the vast array of tools and options less intimidating. The book is broken into chapters that break down a series of comic pages into real world steps. Application over theory. Through downloadable content the author supplies test pages for practice on inking, penciling, coloring, lettering, everything you would need. Sometimes learning new software can be frustrating because of the blank page in front of you and no direction on where to take it. Nothing helps you learn faster than a task to accomplish. The various chapters focus on a specific step to creating your comic page. Chapters on setting up your workspace, pencilling, inking, coloring, lettering, exporting, and printing. All written in easy to understand terms and step by step instructions. Almost every action has a summary following it entitled "What Just Happened?" to summarize what was just covered. Many aspects of comic book creation are covered that have little to do with Manga Studio, which I still found interesting. Topics like story creation and a brief history of printing color in comic books are a fun read. I even leaned where the terms "lower case" and "upper case" originated. Neato! One of my favorite features in this book were the post chapter pop quizzes. It's something I've never seen in any other instructional book I've read. It's a good way to make sure what you are reading is really sinking in.

I highly recommend this book to anyone just starting out with Manga Studio or anyone who uses it and wants to learn more about it. Who knows, you may even learn a few tricks to speed up your workflow. i know I did!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Great springboard 5. Juni 2014
Von kazillo - Veröffentlicht auf
The step-by-step explanations are very detailed and easy to follow, which is great because the reader doesn't immediately have to understand the theory or reason for a technique, (s)he can still do the technique. The author nudges beginners into good backup, safety (like deleting brushes accidentally) and efficiency (turn off Facebook app) habits too. Although I've been using Manga Studio for awhile, I learned some useful information which I'm now using in my workflow. For example, I learned what the icons in the document tab mean and am using the sub view palette instead of opening another app for reference. He doesn't ignore touching on some of the few minor blemishes that MS has though. I think this is a good book to learn how to use this awesome digital drawing program.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Terrible cover, great guts! 25. Mai 2014
Von CM Shifflett - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
The cover is awful, but the innards are an excellent intro to Manga Studio 5.

I am primarily a writer, and have long used AutoCAD and Paint Shop Pro for illustrations, but not up to their limits and to this day I remain woefully unfamiliar with Photoshop, etc. I bought Manga Studio with the notion that some of my materials might be more accessible in graphic format. I did not find MS5 particularly intuitive, and was not satisfied with program manual or a 3rd-party manual I bought.

Internal design is very similar to the "Dummies" series. It starts from the very beginning. Besides careful step-by-step directions (with screen shots) there are many tips and tricks woven into the text.

Greatly appreciated!

4.0 von 5 Sternen No files? What? 2. Februar 2015
Von Scott Drager - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Very good! Lots of good stuff in here, the only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is that the author repeatedly refers to digital files which do not appear to be available anywhere. Kind of annoying since a lot of the lessons use these non-existent files.
