Messing around with Manga Studio today, and this is what came out of it. I was worried that it'd be unable to do other art than linework and simple coloring in. Turns out, it has pretty good brush functions, and it was easy enough to paint in a more traditional way.



Haphazard lighting and shading and not that much construction overall. I just drew whatever I felt like. I'm not going to finish it :P

It's just a test subject. But I thought it came out looking pretty funny, and I wanted to share it. :lol:

And thanks for sharing! I've got Manga Studio but have been too enamored with other projects to really sit down with it, but the times I had spent were only messing around with flat black inking with various brushes. Good to see it fares well with color!

You're welcome! Additionally, I was using the brushes downloadable from here (a lot better examples of more colorful art made in MS on that blog, aswell). You can make your own by using the select tools, somehow. I haven't tried, so I'm not sure how it works yet.

Those are beautiful colors Dennis.  I absolutely love the drawing.  :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:
I thought I'd start trying my hand at music composition.  I don't have any compositional background, but someone on here may still get something out of the pieces I write.  All pieces I write can be found here: https://soundcloud.com/stone-drum
and to musicians on pixelation, all comments are highly regarded  :D

Thanks Friend.

Listened to your music. The Distant Midwinter March and Realignment reminded me of Age Of Wonders, which is a good thing.

I'm no musician myself but I think they could need some refinement. One thing I noticed was that you're using a lot of crooked tones and inside each piece, the transitions from one part to another seem too sudden/abrupt. Maybe there's something like "melody dithering" to smooth it out a bit. Also, I think you're overusing percussion elements and there seem to be too many voices fighting over each other for the ears' attention. Anyway, like I said, I'm no musician and I don't know anything about music composition.
