Process post! I’m drawing with brush pens on tracing paper, refining with each new layer. Tracing paper is nice to draw on, and it doesn’t really have problems with ink as long as you’re not doing huge areas of black.
1) I have a good general idea of the story, but I’m trying to write/compose pages directly on the first layer and only in ink instead of doing thumbnails or anything. I cheat a little — pictured at the far left are some dialogue ideas, and I’m doing a tiny bit of underdrawing in blue pencil.
2) Ideally the second pass is the final one. I’m trying to draw a little more quickly than I might prefer.
3) A smaller round of final corrections, plus in this case a drawing (the dots) that will be layered over the main image in gray.
