More Manga Studio nonsense

Another silly little drawing out of Manga studio.  I'm starting to feel a bit more comfortable in the program, but I haven't had too much time to mess with it.  I'm busy plotting and writing my big comic story!  I think what I will do is get the whole story written and roughed out, then ink about 5-10 pages and then hit those with color.  When i have that many in the "bank", I'll start posting them so that I have a healthy buffer.
Currently I have 15 pages plotted and written.  I've taken Marty's advice and made my panels larger so that the characters have a bit more room to breathe.  Well, I may still be overstuffing the panels, but at least now I have some room to un-stuff them.
I understand that Manga Studio has some word balloon materials that look to be pretty powerful, but I bought the program on sale, so I don't seem to have those materials and I'm not sure if I can get them.  Still, I think it likely that this will be the program I use to generate the line work at the very least.

Manga Studio is a bargain. I'm going to start learning it soon.
Without giving up the idea that illustrator is also a nice tool.
Dig the frog. And dig the line.

Love it. Loose, bold strong lines - the Schmitz style. Can't wait to see more. :)

Well whatever tool you use, I'm looking forward to the return of Dorothy and the Flying Emporium.
