Yep! It’s Sky Rover’s first update of the next month. It can’t say it’s flying on it’s own, but things are going better than my initial expectations. As a thank you to my readers, I want to share with you a bit of my work process.

Before I start to draw a comic, I write it in script form. I don’t write a full detailed script though. Since I’m the only person working on this, I prefer to only work out the big lines, like a sequence of action and breakdowns of the story major points. I know roughly I want to hit some specific narrative moments at some specific pages, but I also try to work as loosely as possible so I can keep going with the flow. I don’t want to force the images into a specific layout I planned ahead, as it would be somehow killing inspiration.

Here are pages 5, 6 and 7 in the advanced thumbnail stage:

Then I rough out the whole chapter until the end and adjust the story. I add- remove panels or pages. I move things around. Once I feel like the story is solid and clear, I polish the drawings a bit and start the inking process. I’ll talk about that in another post. See you soon and enjoy page 16!
