For the purposes of Manga Studio, the starting point is your rough draft. It can be a quick sketch done on a sticky note, or it can be a blank canvas waiting for you to apply your first strokes on your tablet with the Pencil tool.

In this chapter, I explain how to import art into Manga Studio using your scanner, as well as how to import art files you may already have on your computer. If you plan on penciling digitally or you just want to touch up your imported roughs, 1 explain the ins and outs of your two new Manga Studio friends, the Pencil and Eraser tools. Finally, I explain how you can easily treat this digital canvas like it's a physical piece of paper with the Hand, Rotate, and Zoom tools.
