5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Budget Art Software

Pros: Intuitive controls, tool setting defaults are good choices for beginners, excellent getting started manual

Cons: A few tool setting descriptions are useless, fewer canvas and brush options than Corel Painter

Other Thoughts: For a new or journeyman artist with a budget, this is an excellent software choice. Designed in Japan for pro Manga artists, it gives you a wide range of tools. Vector graphics layers give you amazing control and the power to easily correct mistakes in your drawings, and can be rasterized for the full range of paints tools with two mouse clicks. There are a wide range of pen settings and quite a few paint options as well. Version 5.0 will give you an occasional set of instructions in Japanese, but I believe they were all fixed in the 5.0.2 upgrade (free download if your CD is the old version).

As another reviewer mentioned, registration is mandatory and a bit more painful than it should be (you have to type a very long product key), but once it's done it's done.

Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator and Corel Painter X3 give you pretty much all the same tools in a more powerful setting, but will cost you well over $1,000. Plus you'll have to move files between three different programs. Unless you're a pro whose art will suffer from the lack of a gouache paint tool on a grainy canvas background, you'll probably be quite happy with Manga Studio 5's intuitive controls and easy to use layers.

1 out of 5 eggsInternet connection required

Pros: It's good innovative software. It's nice to have the computerized screen tones.

Cons: Install needs more than the serial number to activate. If the software does not have an Internet connection for registration then it defaults to a Trial install. The downloadable manual indicated the same thing if the activation server is overloaded. Just hope Windows doesn't have a bad hair day that makes you re-install it at any time when your internet is down.

Other Thoughts: I feel very insecure about the ability to do re-install this when Murphy's Law visits Windows. I believe the software rates a 4 or 5 but then I can't give that to any software that won't install to fully paid for usability without an internet connection.
