To commemorate the launch, Smith Micro is offering a limited-edition "Axe Cop" image created by Manga Studio artist and Axe Cop creator, Ethan Nicolle. Manga Studio 5 fans can enter an online contest for their chance to win a signed copy of the print, as well as a Wacom Cintiq tablet.
Manga Studio 5 allows artists to create professional comic and manga-style art from start to finish. With an all-new intuitive user interface and a new graphic engine, users can draw and paint with a more natural feel.
Smith Micro and Wacom Technology Corp. continue to work together to provide Manga Studio users with state-of-the-art comic creation technology. Wacom's line of multi-touch tablets, including the Bamboo and Intuos, provide an added bonus to Manga Studio 5 users, allowing them to easily ink and modify their drawings, as well as scale, rotate, pan and zoom in and out of the canvas with ease.
