New Process


When I used to work on comics I would draw them all on a single page. The approach I’m taking now is to make them all in separate files and piecing them together later in Adobe Illustrator. Each method has it’s own set of problems.

When I worked on a single page I had to plan out everything. Even when I carefully planned out everything it never looked quite how I intended and I wasn’t really happy with the results.

The problem with drawing each panel individually is that I haven’t planned out how it’s going to fit together and it looks more like a very detailed animatic or some sort of sequential art . Since every panel isn’t going to be 1032×729 it requires a bit more editing than if I had just planned everything out properly.

However, working on each panel individually allows me have multiple finished pieces. Which makes me feel much more accomplished. Seven high quality panels to display is much nicer than one low quality comic page.

Now that I’ve switched servers and my hosting is functioning I can spend my time on completing my comics (and various other projects) rather than worrying about if I’m going to have to migrate to a new a host and how much that is going to cost me.
