  • Rulers - flexible rulers for drawing straight lines, curves and ellipses.
  • Straight line modes- quick drawing of constrained straight lines including the perspective constrained lines.
  • Brushes - customizable brushes for drawing and painting.
  • Color fill tools - fill tool, bucket tool and gradient tool.
  • Selections - layer selections with standard tools like lasso and magic wand.
  • Splines - vector lines for precise line art, suitable for creation of comic balloons.
  • Transformations - moving, scaling, rotation and other operations for panels, helper elements, bitmap layers and splines.
  • Text - bitmap text.
  • Board texture - texture of the board surface as an adjustable property of the layer

Very glad I purchased this. I've been using it constantly. Very simple, lightweight program. It's only 6 MB! But it's got it where it counts. It feels great. The stroke smoothing is great. Pressure sensitivity with my Wacom Bamboo tablet is excellent. If you are looking for an inking program, you could spend more and find one with a more robust set of tools, but if all you are interested in is inking, this is a great price.

It also does some nice airbrush and colouring but I haven't used it for that yet.

Bottom line is: I'm very glad I got this.. Esp. for 50% off during the holiday sale. :) Haven't stopped using it.

I was a bit unsure if I should buy it or not when I first saw this program. I couldn't find a single review or opinion on the internet or user review in here, but after reading the Community Hub I decided to give it a try, and here what I think about it:

Pros:
- Weight: It's quite a lightweight program, so older computers can run it.
- Perspective tool: It helps a LOT when working on sceneries. You can use up to 3 vanishing points, and it's easy to adjust the angle.
- Pose Tool: I was really curious about it, specially since it's something I always missed in other drawing programs and how it would work with angles and perspective, and it work quite nicely.
- Panels: They may feel a bit odd at first, but they really help a lot. You draw inside them, and then you can position and adjust them in your comic.
- The Developers: Not only they've been helping newbies to the program, giving tips and instructions and making guides on how to use it, they also been listening to the users.
- Price: A good program for a fair price, what not like about it?

Contras:
- The UI: It can be a bit hard to understand on how to use for begginers, but it's not hard once you learn on how to use it (which for me didn't take long, around three to five minutes poking around the program).
- Lack of Guides and Tutorials: It's a fairly new program so, which means it's hard to find tutorials and guides on the internet, but as I said earlier, the developers have been of great help with guides and answering users questions.
- Tablet - It's highly recommended to have a graphic tablet to use the program, and sadly not everyone have or can afford one.

So yeah, I do recommend this program.

Great program. I went over to this from PaintTool SAI and it really wasn't that difficult to figure out how the tools or UI worked. This isn't the best beginner program, but it has everything you need to start. For someone who is working on a web comic or illustration, this program has a lot of very powerful and easy to use tools, in addition to a decent variet of basics.

Pros:
Excellent, fully adjustable perspectives tool
Character poser! Lets you adjust and move a skeleton for characters.
Rulers! Adjustable straight lines, curved lines and circles.
Customizable brushes

Cons:
Feels a little clunky compared to SAI.
Smoothing on the cursor/pen is responsive at 0, but when you draw curves they come out blocky. At max, it feels like your pen is lagging.
Very limited "undo" amount.

Over all, I feel like it's a great program.

I won't lie, it's not perfect by any means. Once you start it up there are pretty much no tutorials, so you need to figure out a lot for yourself or ask around.

That being said, although I wouldn't recommend this as a high end art program or a substitute for one, it works QUITE well for its intended purpose. It has a lot of interesting tools, and it has enough going for it to satisfy any comic or manga artist. And worse case scenario if it doesn't suit your needs, there's no reason you can't start each page on this program then add finishing touches with a more advanced one if you have it.

In summation, this isn't photoshop. Not even close. But it will definitely take a few headaches out of the comic and panel making process. I recommend it to anyone who wants to make a comic or web comic but don't want to shell out 100 dollars or more for the means to do so. Having a graphics tablet would definitely help, but of course that's provided you can afford one in the first place.

One of my new favorite tools! Yes, it has plenty of issues; it lags intensly when using spline layers and etc... even on my High end pc.... and yes it is super simple and seemingly basic... but it is incredibly intuitive... the spline tool, the line blocking and the perspective tool as well as others really revolutionize comicbook designing software. This program is truely developed for comic book artists... in all of the best ways... as far as those artists who are looking for something extremely tool heavy and photoshop-esk this might be waaaay to limited for you... but if you aregoing into professional comicbook creation... you will feel right at home as well as transitioned properly into the future with the layers and line toools provided.

I love this program!
