Giveaway: Win Manga Studio 5


Artists and contest fans alike have a shot at winning a great new art program, absolutely free! Manga Studio 5, from Smith Micro, is a handy tool for artists, or anyone interested in putting together their own graphic novel. Says reviewer Anthony Nelson, “Manga Studio 5 has ushered in a new era in the graphic novel creation process. It now incorporates the use of 3d models, objects and backgrounds to layout the scenes. It took some getting used to, but there are definitely some advantages to using 3d models instead of drawing each scene by hand. This also aligns Manga Studio 5 to interact with other Smith Micro’s products like Poser. The things that make this such an intriguing feature is the ability to use built in poses, save clothing and other manipulations. To me, using the 3d models feels more like directing than drawing, which, as I said, has it’s advantages.” You can check out the full review here, but in the meantime, get ready to win!
