I’m currently working on a new comic as a follow up to Chocolate & Me called Points of View. Chocolate & Me was an exercise in getting something finished. I have a horrible problem of starting a project with gusto and then petering out before it’s even half way done, so I needed to prove to myself I could finish a project and that there was an audience out there for it.
So since finishing Chocolate & Me I have written two comic scripts, POV & Cheers Big Ears. Cheers is about 120 pages drawn & so I wanted a quick project to fill in while I drew it. Only once I got started what was a short comic turned into around a 70 page comic.
So here I am. I would like to get it finished for Thought Bubble, but progress at the moment is slow. I decided to draw it at A3 landscape as I like the amount of space it gives me and the level of detail it would allow me.
I am drawing this in my spare time & during lunch at work, which means I don’t really get a flow going, but I thought I’d post up the progress of this page to show the agonizing time it takes me.
First the thumbnail (I thumbnailed the whole thing first)
Then some pencil
Then some more pencils
Then some inking
And finally ready to be scanned in
I always find other peoples process very interesting, I suspect mine might not be as interesting, but there you go.
Apologies for the poor quality pictures, but I draw on lap and took them with my phone.Posted on 20 March 2012
