He-Man (Re-Design) by KrisSmithDW He-Man (Re-Design) by KrisSmithDW
Further practicing with Manga Studio (or whatever it's called now), starting to get a feel for it and the tools I'm focusing on.  More to go, hell I just learned the ruler tool.  Starting to figure out panels for comic pages as well as text bubbles.  But still more work on tool learnin's.

Halloween monsters still in the works, probably posting them all at once seeing as I failed so hard on 'em, they deserve a big event, lol.

Nice work!

Glad to hear you're working with Clip Studio Paint. By the way, did you get the most recent update? Clip Studio Paint EX Version 1.6.2 is a MUST HAVE UPGRADE if you haven't gotten it already. 

But yeah, I love all the tools the program has. If you have any question that you can't find an answer to online or the user manual, just hit me up and I'll see if I can help. I had a couple of frustrating times trying to find out how to do some things, but I usually either found it in the manual (which you definitely should check first), on an MS5 forum, or just by myself through trial-and-error. There are a BEAST amount of things you can do w/this program and there's always a way to get what you want. Although you'll probably still want to use Photoshop for text stuff. Clip Studio Paint just isn't there yet with their text-manip engine. 

I plan on doing a Glow FX tutorial one of these days to help people do realistic, Photoshop quality glows in CSP. I designed this really unconventional technique, but it works! That's why I love this program, you can make it do all sorts of neat stuff.

Actually just finally did after realizing it was a free update and not a new version I had to purchase, lol.  Although I only have the PRO version, EX is too costly for my blood, lol.

Thank you for the offer, I'll definitely hit you up with any questions I might have :D  Starting to get the hang of more stuff, figuring out panels and text bubbles and stuff.  Text bubble seem no worse than the ones I made in Flash, so they seem okay for my needs so far, lol :P

i basically did a couple layers of air brushing to make the glow on his sword, dunno how more elaborate/larger glows would look so I'll definitely be looking foward to your tutorial :D

Sweet, glad you upgraded. ^_^ Don't forget to check out those new blending modes! They've got a couple of other new additions under the hood as well, including a couple of added brushes and pressure-sensitivity settings which can now adjust the effects you get from your custom brushes. But that new 3D render speed is killer! I'd get major delays before when I'd do some poses when zoomed, but no more. I'm curious how it holds up under multiple on-screen 3D models...gotta push it one day to test it out.

There's definitely one thing that I would suggest doing, if you're not doing it already, which I'm not sure if many people pay attention to very much. Beginning a few versions back, maybe around 1.3.8 or something, I started to read the release notes. I've noticed that with every release they do quite a few minor (and sometimes MAJOR) improvements to the software, things you would never know if you only read the front page. I have found that this really helps you learn more about the software. It also makes it easier to use when you learn they've optimized something, a dial here or a setting there. This program has quite a few different ways of doing the same thing, so it helps to know what options you have.

I don't always "see" the benefits of every change, but I do read them all and sometimes I'll look up the setting to see where they placed the update. 

I also read the problems they note as well.

I think all of this will help guys like you and I to stay ahead of the curve with our abilities, and learn faster. :) I've noticed that quite a few people that struggle with art programs are either not reading the manuals or taking enough time to familiarize themselves with the program. I'm still a novice like yourself, but I'm making an effort to learn as much as I can and I feel more and more comfortable every day.

Here are the release notes for the latest version (I read the whole page):

Sorry about the long post!

Thanks!  I might do an animation style take on this one day just to see how it would look in clean, animation-type lines (instead of the sketchy inky comic look here).  I did that with a Captain America I did like this a while back, might be neat to compare!

A fitting reincarnation of King Greyskull.
(According to canon, He-Man is the personna of King Greyskull, in the body of Prince Adam.)

Same here :D  He-Man, Transformers & G.I. Joe were my "Holy Trinity" as a kid.  I had TONS of He-Man stuff.  Even had the Eternia playset, loved that thing.  Y'know, until the monorail track thingy broke, lol.
