Tools on deck:
Scrivener- Allows me to write out, piece together, and rearrange my script if I need to. I picked it up on a one time special price, so it's quite handy.
Clip Studio- I do my initial pencils & inks in CSP; I also toggle back to it during the color process for certain effects that PS doesnt have. I dont color in CSP coz I use a LOT of gradients in my backgrounds sometimes, and CSP's gradient tool makes me cringe; it's not a subtle fade like I can do with PS- it sticks out harshly to me. I use the 3-d/pose models in CSP as well to help me get an accurate reference of how I want to draw a certain pose for a panel or page.
Photoshop- I do most of my coloring in Photoshop; I was coloring with this program before I had purchased CSP. I have a huge collection of Kyle Webster brushes(which is one of the reasons why I dont stop using PS) and I also love how the gradient tool works in PS(compared to CSP, which I feel has a harsher gradient). I do toggle back & forth between CSP & PS during the coloring stage, depending on if I need to use certain techniques to get certain effects that I want on my pages.
Illustrator- I use Illustrator primarily, for lettering. I know you can use CSP for lettering as well, but also heard that CSP has no kerning- which Illustrator does. I may start to lean on CSP a little to do really rough brush-like sound FX in the future...
I just started using Sketch Up, but not enough right now. I usually Google stuff like fashions for clothing/references. Currently using a Intuos Pen & Touch Medium tablet, but I might invest in a 13 Cintiq- just not sure when. Have the $$$ to do so now, but I'm trying to be responsible and pay off some bills/debts- plus get my vehicle fixed(before the issues get worse).
