Early Process of a Comic Page: Script, Thumbnail, and Colorscripts

Early Process of a Comic Page: Script, Thumbnail, and Colorscripts published on No Comments on Early Process of a Comic Page: Script, Thumbnail, and Colorscripts

This is the early process work for Page 25.

I have 4 separate sketchbooks that I use in making this comic. They are: my Script-book, my Thumbnails Sketchbook, my Concepts Sketchbook (where I write ideas for the world and story), and my General Sketchbook where I hash out the details of the pages and do any number calculations. I do the colorscripts in Photoshop.

I have a story outline for The Pelkern Cycle, but the outline isn’t set in stone. Sometimes, as the characters develop in the story, I realize that some plot points I’ve planned for my characters aren’t consistent with who the characters have become. When that happens, I shift the plot to match the characters. As a result, I write each chapter’s script after finishing the comic pages for the preceding chapter. I will write the script and do the thumbnails for Chapter 3 all in one batch once I finish Chapter 2.
