Meet the Author

Doug Hills has been drawing ever since high school. Originally influenced by the superhero comics of the early- to mid-1990s, his style has adapted towards his other favorite genre: manga. Learning and studying techniques from both the East and West, he’s constantly striving to create a style that can truly be called his own.
In recent years, he has taken that love and desire for comics onto the Internet with two webcomics: Place Name Here and Chibi Cheerleaders From Outer Space, which he works on with his wife, Stacey. His webcomic work led him to Ten Ton Studios, where he worked on a story for their book, Anthologica, and eventually became a member of the group.

MS4D is without a doubt, the best source for guidance and information concerning Manga Studio. Doug does an excellent job to explaining manga studio's many functions and words it in such a way that you won't feel overwhelmed. This book as seriously increased my competence with the program, and I still go to it for help and reference when I get stuck. The best thing about this book is that even though the book was made for MS3, almost all the information inside works for MS 4 as well! If you have Manga Studio or are thinking of picking up a copy, be sure to get a copy of this book as well. You won't regret it.
