    IllustStudio new art program, Photoshop, Opencanvas, SAI... all in one!

    The guys behind MangaStudio thought about us and made this amazing software called IllustStudio, at the time being it's only available to Japan but I imagine like ComicStudio it will be available in English soon.

    Watch the demos on youtube and be amazed! It even has a 3D engine for helping with layouts, granted it's very manga orientated but hopefully we can change the 3D models to more realistic figures and a brush is a brush, they even took SAI's inking layer to an whole other level, a software to keep an eye on.

    Whoa. Amazing!
    Some features are really cool but on the other hand they could be even more spoiling than Undo in digital painting

    I'll definitely try it out when they make English version.

    Yes very true I hadn't thought about it that way, still it's nice to have the options and there are so many new ideas here that it's hard to imagine it's the debut version.

    O_O

    This will really spoil me if I can read Japanese. If they ever add a similar brush engine like Photoshop, see me fully working in IllustStudio only. :p

    Thanks for the info Portus!

    Woooow. Color me impressed. I can definitely see switching over at least partially from Photoshop. This looks amazing.

    Mm. I may attempt a translation at some point. This is worth it.

    Ya some pretty innovative stuff, really puts adobe to shame.

    I wonder how much of this is vector based?

    Well it looks like price-range wise it's running between $64-85 (after currency conversion)? If I'm wrong, please correct me... Guess I shouldn't have dropped my foreign language classes after all. XD

    One section in the 2nd video appeared to be talking about the option to make individual layers either a "vector layer" or "raster layer." The vector layers were then able to be manipulated by some special tool-- the part where you saw a green highlight on a line and then the line getting thicker or thinner.

    If this program really does have options like that (letting lineart be a vector image with bitmap color layers underneath) and all the other stuff, AND it's selling for only $70... I can see it being a major competitor with Photoshop among artists. Much easier to buy a copy of this program than buy the $700 PS. I don't think Adobe would like the competition, though they might appreciate the drop in piracy rates for PS.

    Definitely going to try to translate this over the weekend, I think.

    *phew* Okay, I went ahead and did a translation of the first video (the one around 6 minutes long)

    Video #1
    (Note I'm only translating the text on screen, but from what I can tell the announcer is basically only elaborating on the text a little bit; this isn't that uncommon for Japanese shows.)

    IllustStudio Product Introduction Movie (Sequel)

    "The Process of Stretching the Range of your Expression"


    Text: It's easy to apply, shave off, or add on (textures)

    At top: "mesh transform"
    "You can transform the tone or shape of your image"

    At top: "smudging filter"
    "Apply anti-alias to your picture"

    At top: "Watercolor boundary filter"
    "Put a watercolor boundary on your image"

    At top: "Gradation coloring filter"
    "Make the most of a base image gradation's color"

    At top: "Filter layer"
    "Apply filters to layer (the whole image)"?

    At top: "Text tool"
    "Very user-friendly letter-input"
    (spoken) "you can change the style very easily too"

    "Support for difficult drawings: Aid Function"

    At top: "3D Underdrawing"
    "A 3D object can be used as an underdrawing"
    (spoken) something like "in order to make it easier to draw poses of the body, use a 3D object to draw over."

    At top: "Radiating curve ruler"
    "Draw beautiful radiating lines"

    At top: "Concentric circle ruler"
    "Draw beautiful circles"

    At top: "Symmetry ruler"
    "Form a perfectly left-right symmetrical pattern of any object"

    At top: "Perspective ruler"
    "Draw difficult perspectives easily and beautifully"
    (spoken) talks about using 'vector layers' to draw in and manipulate the lines

    At top: "Action"
    "Increase the efficiency of your actions"
    (spoken) when you use actions, you can work more quickly

    At top: "Image capture"
    "Record your work process"

    At top: "CMYK expression"
    "Use CMYK mode when manufacturing prints"

    At top: "File input and output"
    "There are many ways to manage your files" (.bmp, .jpg, .tiff, .psd, etc)

    hmm does look promising, but wouldn't working in vectors in such a way slow down your computer really bad?

    I'm wondering though Manga Studio had 2 different price ranges. The lower one didn't have features certain features like Debut was about 40 and the higher end one was about 300. I'm not saying that's bad by the way it would still be worth it at the higher range.

    Just wondering if that will happen here since MangaStudio had the perspective and Concentric circles option in the Pro version.

    IllustStudio does look pretty cool. They make it seem like the selection tools are exceptionally easy and quick, doing a lot of the work for you. Which would be nice since selecting areas and setting up layers takes up probably half of my time when I'm digitally painting over some scanned work.

    That lil' trick with the fill bucket rocked my socks though. I hate when my line work has that one nearly indiscernible break and the entire background gets filled in. It's not really a big deal and it is pretty easy to fix or work around, but it is one of those little annoyances that irks me every time it happens.

    Overall pretty cool, although if it becomes popular I fear some of those gimmick brushes *coughleafbrushcough* might become the new lens flare.
