After a summer hiatus, William the Last resumed this week. Since I do the whole thing digitally my pencils are little more than a layout. Here’s how the pages start these days:
Sketching in pen in my sketch book has really helped me see things in my mind before I make a mark on the paper…or screen, as the case may be.
I try to stay pretty gestural at every step with this comic. I have a lot of story to go through and only so much time. I’m not picky about making every line perfect, it just has to be in the right spot. Controlled chaos.
Hopefully it works.
