Geez, getting this illustration done was a lot harder than it should have been! The first issue I ran into was my Wacom tablet up and died on me. That was resolved by the awesome people at Wacom customer service for a low nominal fee.
Next, I downloaded the newest version of Photoshop to try out all of it’s new toy’s, but apparently it has more than a few bugs. After a couple of times on the phone with Adobe, I found out the particular bug that I was running into (saving issues) won’t be fixed until the next version (19.1).
In the mean time I busted out good ol’ Manga Studio and knocked this guy out!

Fortunately, Photoshop is one hell of a program and it was a pretty easy fix. I’m really glad I worked in multiple layers. It made fixing this little goof up (I still can’t believe I didn’t see that sooner) that much easier to clean up.
The first of many pieces for 2017! The more I use Manga Studio the more I love inking in it. Still not a fan of coloring in it, but maybe I just haven’t found the right process yet. Until then, there’s still good ol’ Photoshop!
