Anonymous said: Hi I was wondering if you can do tutorial of how to clean scanner sketch in manga studio? Without using any pen tool or brushes, only using brightness and contrast or maybe level?
LOL I was wondering what was in my inbox, since I hardly get any messages. Sadly, I don’t really have the time to make a tutorial but I can give you a few tips if that will help you. (I’m sorry if you’re not much of a reader).
Now, depending of what scanner you get, you can get a software that helps you enhance your scans so you don’t have to do as much editing. My software has level correction, so that’s what I use, however I still end up editing the scanned sketch. You can also get pretty messy sketches depending how good/bad your are at avoiding smudges. After scanning, I actually use Photoshop (not Manga Studio) to clean up my sketches. I’ll answer with the assumption that you only have Manga Studio.
I’d recommend you use level correction first instead of brightness/contrast. I find it better to control. More or less, you just play around with the markers and see how much of the smudges you can erase. However, if your sketch has shading or light lines, they might get erased so be careful. After this, you can use brightness and contrast to clean it up a bit more. Your sketch will be much cleaner but I’m sure there will be spots you can’t get away without using a tablet pen. xD
If you have access to Photoshop somewhere, I recommend using “Exposure” along with Level correction. It really helps clean up the sketch more (but it still won’t be perfect). So in the end, cleaning up the hard way is still the way to go, in my opinion anyway. I hope this helped! ^_^;;
