I love to draw with pencil on paper and it has been a while since i draw something on the computer. I started to working on the computer again when i learnt that Manga Studio 5 is available for Mac. I’ve been wanted to use a similar software called, “Paint Tool SAI” which is free but for PCs only! (Free Download from http://painttool-sai.en.softonic.com/) I switched from Microsoft Windows to Mac OS since 2008. The first one i own was 13″ White MacBook and now i’m using 15″ MacBook Pro bought in 2010. My next computer is going to be either 21.5″ or 27″ iMac (depends on my budget). I feel like i’m getting old because i prefer bigger and bigger screen every time i bought a new computer. I also have Wacom’s Bamboo Fun tablet. Although it’s a lot easier to use tablet instead of a mouse, i still have a problem with inking process. It’s so hard to make lines smooth! 😦 I took a course on computer art once where i learnt how to use the Adobe Creative Suit (Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign). Here are some of my computer artworks i made using SketchBook Pro, Adobe Illustrator CS5 and Manga Studio 5 from 2011 till present. 😀
