Comic Process - Nor’Easter
Here’s a look at the process from layouts to inks for a book called Nor’Easter. Matt Sniegoski, a talented writer from New York, is the writer.
We changed panel three in order to show the characters emoting, but other than that, everything remains pretty much the same.
Everyone works differently, but layouts is where everything falls into place for me. If layouts aren’t strong, pages take 10x longer to pencil. That’s no exaggeration either. Sometimes, layouts can take more time than actually penciling a page. But proper preparation prevents piss poor performance, if Garth Ennis' The Boys taught me anything.
Inking is where the fun is. Every page is inked on watercolour paper with brush and ink. Then some waterproof ballpoint pens for detail, and finally washes. That’s about it!
Now get out there and make some comics.
