Wacom teamed up Celsys, creators of Clip Studio Paint, to give you an insider’s view of manga comic creation from start to finish in this five-part video tutorial series. These videos are great for beginners who need help getting started, but the tutorial also works for a more advanced artist who wants to improve their comic drawing skills.
