    Hello, I love your work and the story really drawn me in. From one comic artist to another, what is the process you go through when composing a page? Do you do something like,

    1. Write script, dialogue and/or what happens in each panel.
    2. Rough sketch page panel design and placing where you might want things to be
    3. Upload rough sketch to computer and use program.

    Something like that? Can you tell me what programs you use? I'm very interested and would help a lot since I'm trying to know what to expect and find some tools that others use to find what might work for me? Thank you.

      Oh wow, sorry. I didn't see this shout until today. ^^;;

      So hm, back then, I used to do it like this:

      I'd sketch a rough layout of the page on paper, just deciding where I'd divide the frames and character's poses and dialogue.
      Then I'd upload it to the computer and draw a fine sketch, then do the lineart, coloring, shading, then background and finally lettering.

      Nowadays I do it all digitally, but the process is the same;

      First; Decide the page layout with speeches and poses.
      Second; Sketch it all and make changes as necessary.
      Third; Inking, coloring, backgrounding and lettering.

      I dunno if it's accurate or understandable, but let me know if you have any doubts about it. =o
      Worst case scenario, check this:

        Oh very cool, that does explain a lot, do you just use manga studios? Which version? Is it latest? Do you use mouse, tablet or Cintiq?

        I'm trying to get into digital in future. But I know I have quite a bit of learning to do. But you seem to definitely have a lot of practice and you work very well. :)

          Thanks! I've been using the latest Manga Studio (version 5), I use Photoshop for lettering though, but the whole drawing, colorind, shading and rendering is done on Manga Studio.
          I do all my work now on a Cintiq, but I began drawing on paper, scanning and finishing it on the computer with a cheap intuos tablet, nothing fancy.

          • Link

            Oh nice, I heard Photoshop is a monthly fee program? If that's the case is the a non monthly software for it or is it locked behind it?

            Did it take you a while to get used to the Cintiq when you got it?

            • Link

              Fuck me, I keep forgetting to check these answers! D:

              Yeah, the Photoshop is a monthly fee program. However, Manga Studio/Clip Studio Paint is a pay once and that's it. It also has the ability to do lettering, but I prefer Photoshop because it's easier to edit balloons there.

              Also, not much, I've been using a common tablet for years, the Cintiq didn't take long to adjust. The only problem is to find a comfortable position for it, since you can't have it flat on your desk, otherwise you won't see what you're drawing. So finding a position that doesn't tires the arm and isn't uncomfortable is quite a challenge.
              Also, just like in paper, your hand blocks part of the screen, which isn't all thaaat nice, but you get used to it.

    Comic is interesting so far, I see a few grammatical errors, but nothing I don't think you wouldn't notice if you re-read your pages. ^-^ Good luck with your little web comic!
