A short video capture clip of me painting part of the new cover in Manga Studio 5EX (now called Clip Studio Paint). Not the final version of the cover–I decided not to leave Bandette’s face blue! But I didn’t get a video of all the fiddling and noodling I did after this, boo. Bandette 13 will be available digitally on ComiXology in mid-May.
Preliminary layouts for the cover of Bandette #13, done in Manga Studio 5EX (now called Clip Studio Paint). I start out with the logo and subtitle and a very rudimentary sketch and take it from there. The mask was drawn with the aid of Manga Studio’s Symmetrical ruler–very handy for designing such objects!
