I'm a comic artist who moved from America to Japan in 2004 to study manga in Tokyo. I've done some assistant work for a few mangaka and had some experience with publishers, but right now I'm trying to see how far I get self-publishing. I am a traditional artist and use actual nibs, ink, and screen tones for my comics. I use Photoshop for color chapter covers, though!
Photoshop CS5, Pilot Ink, Deleter Screen Tone, etc
