Drawing for Myself – Red Ranger
Continuing on with my Manga Studio inking tests. I’m finding the pen tool in vector mode is pretty intuitive. The brush tool, however, was not today.

It came as a surprise to me that the brush’s density and size depend on the speed at which you draw the line, not the pressure you use on the tablet. The faster you draw, the smaller and less dense the line becomes. I guess that’s kind of how a brush works, but I couldn’t find out how to also add pressure sensitivity to the tool. Since I only give myself 20-min for these warm up sketches, I didn’t take the time to investigate those settings. I just needed to get the drawing done. I’ll look into it later, or wait for a generous soul to comment here with the info.
And in case you’re curious, here are the pencils I did for the piece, on regular copy paper:
