Introducing: My new workflow!
I'm sure you've all been wondering what's been keeping me from my predicted updates so I thought I'd show you!
This book marks the debut of a totally new process to bring my work from idea to finished image. My past comics have been no longer than 20 pages each, so they were simpler affairs. This book being 60 pages (and only book 1 of at LEAST 4) I needed a new way to go about things.
This need combined with my recent exploration of the program "Paint Tools SAI" has given me the tools and approach I needed for a lengthy and more complex story.
It's been this transition that's kept me from posting an update as early as I had hoped. while progress is still within my timetable and deadlines, this new flow has produced less "presentable" work early on. However, it is allowing the finishing/inking/lettering to go at least twice as fast as previous endeavors! Not only that, but I hope you'll agree that my new (and now digital) inks look MUCH crisper than my OLD stuff.
To showcase this I thought I'd show you folks the progression of a page from thumbnail to inks (at the bottom of this update).
To make up for lack of updates I'm actually gonna have another one in the next day or two to talk a bit about my writing process. Is there anything else anyone wants to see covered in an update? While I may not address every request don't hesitate to voice any and all thoughts!
