so, this year i’m trying out a new process for me to make comic books. the process entails first laying out very rough thumbnail concepts in pencil. sometimes i play around with a couple different layouts, to see how i best like the panels to tell the story. next, i go to the computer, working with Photoshop and a Wacom tablet and loosely draw in the figures, using reference pictures as often as possible. supposedly, the beauty of this step is that i can use Photoshop to resize and move them around without constantly erasing on paper. then, i invested in a new printer that’s able to print on the 11×17 comic boards in blue ink. and voila, that’s where i’m at now! just finished all 8 pages of this original comic i’m working on and ready for the final step of the detailed pencils and inks. below is a pic of the steps mentioned above.
