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?

milonogiannis:

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.

My steps:

1. Outline

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

6. Inks/Colors

SKOCJAN CAVES -SKOCJAN, SLOVENIA

Often referred to as the “Underground Grand Canyon,” the Eastern European cave system features one of the largest subterranean chambers in the world. The largest room in the limestone cave network, known as “Martel’s Chamber,” is a gaping canyon which was formed by the underground flow of the Reka river, which still rushes along the bottom of the chasm. Thanks to the amount of water that flows through the canyon, the caves also hold a number of eye-catching geological features such as limestone pools and giant stalagmite formations. The cave’s unique spaciousness also hosts a number of species of bat, countless unique bio-organisms, and even a variety of fish that has never seen the light of day. A bridge has also been built, spanning the chasm so that visitors can experience the colossal geologic divide.

Built by the Nabataean Kingdom prior to Roman annexation, these series of tombs were abandoned by the time Islam became predominant in the region.
