Sketch - 20 Minutes
Ink - 1 Hour
Flat Color - 0 Hours (I have someone else do the flats, it takes them 30 minutes usually)
Finishing Touches - 1-2 hours depending on if there's a detailed background or not
I've been told by a lot of people I draw really fast.
Microraptor:Wait wait wait, you are supposed to have an actually written down script?? o.0
It really just depends on what kind of comic you're doing, I kept trying to do grand stories with lots of developed characters, but the world around them had no base, no structure, so ultimately I'd plop them down and then not know where they're supposed to be going. I kept trying to make worlds with lots of fantastical creatures and magical rules without really jotting the ideas anywhere so I lost a lot of my ideas.
I want to tell a big, in depth story and I realized I couldn't keep relying on just my head and some sketches to do that.
I'd write a script sometimes, maybe page by page, but there was no outline or structure which made me go off on a lot of tangents and ultimately never even get to the main premise of the stories.
When I decided on the story I wanted to tell now, I wanted to actually take my time on it and I spent a year just researching, taking notes, coming up with chapter ideas, scripting, getting feedback from friends, drawing concept art... and rather than update as I go, I made a plan that allowed me to have a good amount of the comic drawn before posting the pages on a schedule, which has left me more time to plan ahead and make sure the story is flowing well.
I wouldn't do this for any spur of the moment projects, or smaller stories, but this is one I want to spend a long time on and maybe even publish some day if possible, so I'm putting my all in to it.
