I work in odd ways sometimes. When I work digitally I have a tendency to go very loose and quick on my pencils. Part of it is that I have found that in the last year or so it takes me a little longer to ink a page of a comic digitally than it does with a brush and ink.
I dealt with having a small scanner at the beginning of working on my run on Caryn A. Tates Red Plains. It was a mess. Took forever to do a page because I would pencil each panel on a separate piece of paper and then scan them and arrange them digitally before inking.
Now I have a larger scanner and can pencil the full pages. I generally (for this project at least) do my pencils on 11×17 100 lb. bristol, but I will talk more about that stuff in a day or two.
So, I rambled. There you go.
I will leave this off for the night with where I begin most of the time. I open the script on the laptop and do (very) rough thumbnails to help me get the flow of the story and page and general what nots.
I know most artists work the same way. I just have a tendency to second guess myself sometimes and it leads to longer times making decisions. Like I said, I know most artists work this way.
