I finished second page! whee! if only i can make all comics this way! heeheehee! ;)
you see, I do them in actual size. And I draw the backgrounds first, then the objects separately. Then I scan the whole lot and cut and paste away. the I finish with gradients, airbrush and other digital renderings for shades and shadows. That way I finish a whole comic page a day. whee! Then I use whatever repeating backgrounds on succeeding pages.
And most of all, I am excited about his reaction to my work. He's really enthusiastic about it :)
