About the Author

Doug Hills has been drawing ever since high school. Originally influenced by the superhero comics of the early- to mid-1990s, his style has adapted towards his other favorite genre: manga. Learning and studying techniques from both the East and West, he’s constantly striving to create a style that can truly be called his own.
In recent years, he has taken that love and desire for comics onto the Internet with two webcomics: Place Name Here and Chibi Cheerleaders From Outer Space, which he works on with his wife, Stacey. His webcomic work led him to Ten Ton Studios, where he worked on a story for their book, Anthologica, and eventually became a member of the group.

4.0 out of 5 stars This book was a sanity saver July 26 2009
By D. Coty
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Having the foresight or the good fortunate of ordering this book with my copy of Manga Studio Debut 4 made my first dive into digital cartooning so much easier. The author, Doug Hills, makes the concepts used by the software easy to understand and even takes the reader through the steps of their first drawing. It is a first rate book and can be used with either the Debut or the EX (pro) version of Manga Studio. The only downside was that the directions did not always match the program's sequences but with some looking around it, the proper steps could be determined.

4.0 out of 5 stars If you use Manga Studio 4.05 or earlier... Feb. 5 2014
By Reddog
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
With the release of Manga Studio 5.0 this book becomes less of a necessity. Is there value in it? For the right price...

The author Doug Hills is an accomplished digital comic artist with a long history of using Manga Studio. The book is an in depth look all the capabilities of the program (versions 4.05 and earlier). A decent index is included to help expedite your searches for your different questions when using Manga Studii 4 or 3... And there is the rub. The release of the "new" version 5 might make this book less appealing. MS 5 while using a lot of the same basic principles has also undergone many changes the biggest being in terms of the "new" colour applications.

The colour capabilities are more in tune with Photoshop (the digital colouring software used by most)...

If you are using MS4 or earlier I'd give it a 4.5! if you are moving on to 5 then use the author's online tutorials found with a quick search or wait for his next release of a "digital" chapter dedicated to MS5! (to be released any time)...

5.0 out of 5 stars A must have book for MS users :) May 20 2010
Format:Paperback
As Manga Studio has been designed as software for the graphic storyteller, Manga Studio for Dummies is a terrific book written by someone who understands the process and problems of telling a story visually. Doug Hills has laid out his book not as a menu of tools but in the same way I approach a page, handing me the knowledge I need to get the job done in the sequence I needed to know them in. He has an engaging writing style that provides information in a friendly professional voice, and not a dry technical one that many manuals suffer from. I would highly recommend this book to anyone learning or using Manga Studio 4.

5.0 out of 5 stars Manga for Dummies Dec 18 2012
By Mic
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Although written for Manga Studio Ex 3.0, this book is still very valuable for beginners who have purchased Manga Studio Ex 4.0.
It covers all the bases and gives the newcomer to the electronic drawing scene the encouragement to continue drawing.
It would be great to be able to obtain a "Dummies" book that covers the much improved Ex 4.0 Version of Manga Studio
as the changes in drawing with a new color palette and layer structure is not that easy to grasp for beginners.
The segments in this book are well explained and lead the reader to become creative right from the start.
This book is worth every penny!
