Manga studio alternative?

I think you should try using pencil, blender, inkscape, or synfig studio. These all are a lot of cool ways you can draw like manga stuffs if you know how to use it properly. Blender is the ultimate opensource alternative to MAYA Pencil is a traditional animation and vectoring software inkscape is a very interesting kind of vectoring software alternative to adobe illustrator. The synfig kinda good one Try theese it might help u cuz if u see synfig's gallery there are anime made with it So google for these options
