This page was done entirely in Manga Studio, compared to half and half (MS+ Photoshop for text). The text controls in Manga Studio still really suck, but I think I at least got things to work for the first time ever. I admit, the MS word balloon capabilities are WAY nicer than how I just hand draw them. When it comes time for prepping pages for print, I'll likely go back and redo all the balloons with MS.
This arc is over in a few pages, and then I'll take a week off to prepare for the next (final) chapter. Which like I've been saying, is long.
When I started this story, I imagined a 3-4 year journey. It's now been officially 5.5. Another half year, and it'll finally be done! WHOOOOOOOO
Hope you're liking the journey so far!
