  • Product DetailsBack to top
  • Avanquest Manga Studio 5 is an advanced all-in-one solution for drawing, laying out, illustrating and publishing. Sketch, ink, colour and publish your own comic characters and creations using expert tools and a wealth of features.

    Create your own comics

    Enjoy incredible versatility and flexibility with this Manga Studio software, which lets you sketch with your mouse or use a pen tablet to draw naturally. You can scan in your existing paper artwork or even import photos and other images to incorporate in your own Manga and comic designs.

    The software provides a full suite of pens, pencils, brushes and selection tools, which team with vector mapping and smart pen pressure sensing for an experience very much like drawing on paper. It's possible to work on vector layers to create images independent of resolution.

    In living colour

    Manga Studio 5
    includes preset colours and a colour palette to make your own custom colour sets, creating endless possibilities for breathing life into your artworks. Switch between colours at high speed, using the realistic blending options to mix them as if you were doing so with your fingers.

    Powerful creation tools

    Now you can achieve an even more professional, polished look with Manga Studio 5's advanced layer effects, brush effects, user-controlled anti-aliasing and support for 3D objects and figures. You can incorporate reference and background materials.

    Use 3D characters in 3D background images and give your creations new depth of expression. There's accessory data for each character including clothes, hairstyles, facial expression and more. That can be tailored to suit your needs, as you customise image data and adjust camera angles.

    Improved pen and brush tools for more natural and richly expressive drawings and illustrating, with the sensitive and customisable pen pressure sensor providing natural, realistic pen touches. You can even use it to correct distorted lines and other anomalies.

    Quick panel creation

    You won't have to redraw artwork due to errors thanks to the ability to easily add and customise page panels – which can be made in all shapes and sizes using Bezier curves.

    Built-in Word Balloons make adding dialogue a snap, allowing you to freely adjust text font, size, style and spacing. There are word balloon styles for all moods and expressions for quick addition to your page via simple drag-and-drop. Adjust the style, direction and angle of each tail without hassle.

    Screen tones, patterns, filters and vector tools

    Add depth, dimension and character to your drawings in Manga Studio 5 using screen tones that can be dragged and dropped into place, or custom made. They'll help prevent moiré effects and problems with printing clarity or resizing.

    Advanced filters let you create all manner of distortions, hue adjustments and added effects; plus special black-and-white filters.  Integrated vector tools allow for faster production, letting you view the centre line of vectors and quickly spot difficult areas. Get the lines you want with vector snapping tools.

    New interface and high-res support

    Manga Studio 5
    offers a revamped interface with all the vital features easily accessible. Because it's now a 64-bit programme, you'll benefit from enhanced speed and memory if you're using a 64-bit machine.

    Multi-core support gives it the ability to handle high definition and multi-layered art projects with improved efficiency. The latest drawing engine provides superior realism while you work, just like using real pencils or brushes.

    Work fast and publish for print or web

    With the customisable Manga Studio Tools and Action palettes, you'll be able to arrange typical multi-step operations into one-click commands to improve your productivity. Favourite tools and commands can be saved to the Custom Tools palette for more direct access. RE-usable assets like background can be kept in the Materials palette, and multiple undos allow for easy corrections.

    When you're done, print from the desktop, send items to professional printers digitally or export in popular graphic formats for internet use. Manga Studio pages can be exported as layered PSD files and in all common image formats, and you can resize without losing quality. Use Raster to Vector Conversion to export your bitmap drawings to resolution-independent vector images and layers.

    Use Avanquest Manga Studio 5 to realise and expand your comic-drawing and artistic goals and horizons.
