Using Clip Studio Paint and Wacom Intuos, artist Caterina Rocchi will show you the process from sketch to the final piece while creating a manga comic. Wacom teamed up with her and Celsys to give you this insider’s view of manga creation.

The lovely Caterina is the owner of Lucca Manga School in Italy. In this tutorial series, she goes through the entire process of creating a manga comic and breaks it down into 13 steps.
