you are correct, aero. (due to my carelesness and this useless country. I lost the stylus and no shops have it here, so i hafta get it replaced... 6 months from now...)

Also, i have this admiration for Illustrator for some reason. But i won't pass out on the chance to try out MSS if i find it.

For inking i recommend following order. Paint > Photoshop > manga studio > paint tool sai.

For colouring ... Paint > manga studio > paint tool sai > photoshop.



its just my experience though.

I am of a slightly diferrent mind on you for both of those. O.o
Don't see why so many programs need to be involved.

If you're not doing inking traditional, and instead, digitally use the programs in this order:
Manga Studio > SAI

And for coloring:
Paint, Photoshop or SAI > SAI > Photoshop
Make sure to do everything on different layers so you can edit each part's colors after-the-fact.

Thanks. I'll keep these in mind. I'll use a little tweaking though, since i use Illustrator for inking+coloring.

Dude, just use the paths tool in Photoshop, one bit at a time. I use that, and I work with a mouse. It gives excellent, clean results (altho I prefer inking them manually by mouse, but that;s not the point).

It would go a lot faster with Painttool Sai because you can just draw vector lines and move the points to where you need them. You can also export as a PSD.
I'm back~~~
