Sneak peak behind the scenes!

BlogThe process by which I create the comic has changed over the past year, largely due to my fickleness.  I am always trying to find the best way of executing my ideas–from starting with pencil and paper, to drafting an entire comic digitally.  One thing that hasn’t changed, however, is my scripting process.

Take a look at some of my usual comic script pages:

Yeah its pretty scattered.  I sort of “hash out” my ideas visually, sketching out rough thumbnails of the comic’s layout.  I figure out how many panels, their shape and order, before deciding on the actual dialogue.  For many creators its the other way around.  For me, its just easier this way.

    1. Really? Did you check out today’s Webcomics.com article, extolling the importance of thumbnails??

      Then again, you’re much better at this than I am, 😛

  1. I didn’t check it out yet. I’ve being doing the comic in my head for so many years now putting it down on paper seems like an unneccesary step. I’m also working from historical/biblical events, so I already have a pre-built foundation to work from. Saves me some time.

    “Better” is in the eye of the beholder. You’ve got speed and consistency, that’s a winning card I can’t play yet.

    (also, is this a new type of comment plug-in? It looks like it’s nested suddenly)

    1. no, i just haven’t been using it to reply to comments. Beside your comment date there is a “reply” option that will nest it.

      I was hoping it would also email the original commenter, but I don’t think it does…

  2. Nope, no email. I use the “reply” in the backend after approving the comment. Someone has to have made a plug-in for the email thing, maybe, possibly.

    1. I saw one that does that, but I’m surprised its not a native part of WordPress. You’d probably get an email if I required you to register, but I dont wanna do that.
