Aloha all!

First, a big and hearty thank you to :iconshinxin: for the late X-Mas present, Manga Studio EX5!  I've barely had the chance to play with it yet, but the inking tools are a little different, in a good way.  The program is way more responsive to tablet pressure sensitivity than EX4, so I have to get used to that.  However, the coloring tools are much better and more robust than EX4, sort of a cross between Photoshop and Painter.  That said I'll have to get used to that too as the way I do colors in Photoshop don't work so well here, or, and more than likely, I just haven't wrapped my head around the brush controls yet.  The program itself runs faster overall because of its native 64-bit support which EX4 was only 32-bit.

The image I posted on Friday morning [zhaxra.deviantart.com/art/CBR-…, was my first image completed in EX5.  I had finished my pencils in EX4 before I got the upgrade, and finished the image completely in EX5.

Hopefully I'll be a little more productive, provided I can ever stop playing Hearthstone.  That game is very addictive and I'm not even a fan of those style of card games. :p
