Though overlooked in most historical accounts, recently unearthed documents indicate that Napoleon’s loss at Waterloo hinged upon a night of drink and debauchery undertaken by his genetically engineered battle pug, Henri.
Henri, sent to the past by a future coalition of hardline French nationalists, asked of Napoleon a single night of respite from the continuous war-making his life had become since his deployment into the past.
Napoleon loved Henri more than his own ambitions and acquiesced to the pug’s demands. Henri drank himself sick and did not show for the infamous three day campaign that followed.
Late in life, Napoleon was said to have offered a defense of his beloved, time-traveling compaion, taking full the blame for the decision that led to Henri’s absence.
“Henri knew only war. His naive heart could not have understood the ramifications of his prolonged absence from the battle lines. I, as emperor, was to blame for allowing his request to be fulfilled. He disappeared after, taking my heart and fight with him. I only hope he came to know peace.”
The ultimate fate of Henri is uknown at present. Some accounts indicate Henri, shamed by the dishonor he brought to his master and friend, disguised himself as a horse in an ill-fated attempt on the Duke of Wellington’s life in an effort to regain the favor of Napoleon. Had Henri known Napoleon’s loyalties and love were not swayed by the pug’s earlier absence, perhaps the disasterous effort on the Duke might never have been attempted.
Used my Frenden Brush for Manga Studio EX4. I like it. I’m hatching in a way that I never hatch digitally. And this is just the first brush I’ve used. This one feels like it will do everything I ever want to do. Going to be busy checking out the rest of them. I guess I should take notes.
Q:Thank you for your reviews and knowledge in this digital drawing world. I just bought the Yiynova MSP 19U and Manga Studio EX 4 along with your brushes and love them all greatly!!! I do have one question though since I'm new to all this. When I'm drawing my lines aren't very crisp. Not smooth looking. And when I zoom in they almost look pixilated. Is there a setting that I need to address? Maybe to set it up for drawing by hand? Also , when I export the drawing the lines look fine. Thanks!!!
Manga Studio 4 works well at super high resolutions like 1200 dpi with aliased lines. Manga Studio 5 works optimally at slightly lower resolutions with anti-aliased lines by default.
Anti-aliasing may make lines look good on screen, but you’re actually better off with high resolution, jagged lines for print reproduction.
There is a setting in Manga Studio 4 that will smooth and anti-alias the display of lines on your canvas without actually producing anti-aliased lines here: See the check box labeled view quality at the top? I keep mine set to default because, after working with the app sine 2006, I’m just used to it.
