I'm so glad that you made it through this chapter. How is your comic looking? I'm sure it's great, and I hope that you're enjoying Manga Studio as much as I enjoy it!

Here are the important points we covered this chapter:

  • Setting up a multi-page file using a previously built page template

  • Cutting frame borders using the panel cut tool

  • Saving the frame borders as a Material and inserting them into the other pages of our file

  • Using a 3D model to lay out a character pose

  • How to ink, as well as some inking tips and tricks

Now we have a pretty nice-looking comic here. But we can still do more to finish it up, and that's what we're going to talk about in Chapter 10, Finishing Touches. Get ready, because toning and coloring is up next!
