baronbattle said: Just curious...I'm getting started on my own comic, and I was just wondering if, when working on OCB, do you write descriptions of the layouts in the scrip first? Or do you do draw the layouts first, then write accordingly?
Generally I write and work from mockup-issue layouts (sort of like the japanese “Name” thing). It makes more sense for me to “write” in comics form since I’ll be drawing it myself.
Also it can be helpful to write beats, too — like breaking down your issue in pages and going from there, instead of writing out each specific panel.
This is similar to how I work.
2. Concept Art
3. Thumbnails (mine are big—6”x9” with rough dialog balloons”)
4. Script—which is a revision of the dialog in the thumbnails
5. 10”x15” pencils
