My Take on the Software
I just started using this, and I am definitely not an expert, but I have come to find that the software delivers exactly what it states that it will. I loved how user friendly the software was and I found that even though I am not an expert, you can use this software to make some amazing comics that you can take and share with any that will read them. I have to say that as a kid I would have loved to have had this, as I made many comics and they were always painstaking processes, starting with pencil, then to colored pencils and then to ink. This takes out a number of these steps and allows you to do all of these stages virtually which is just amazing. This is definitely the version that is made more for beginners which is where I wanted to be. At the same time, it is nice to know that with the EX version is available that has a number of greater bells and whistles that this does not have. All-in-all this was a great start to rekindling my cartooning interest.
