Page Process by tarantellino Page Process by tarantellino
Welp, people kept asking me how I make my comics so I took some process shots of the latest page?
And by "people kept asking me", I mean I got two or three vague comments about a month ago. :iconserioustearplz:

Please don't interpret this as a tutorial. This is by no means the only way to draw comics, it's just how I normally do it.

I ACTUALLY DO HAVE A SECRET
At least for reading assignments. If you can find the audiobook of what you're supposed to read online and you're comfortable enough to draw and listen at the same time, you can do your homework and draw comics AT THE SAME TIME. :iconmindblownplz:

As an aside, I really like that you used a different tablecloth for each picture.

Love when artists illustrate their process :)
I'm a noob when it comes to traditional art sorry, but is it difficult to cover the ink with certain watercolors? or does it hardly take any coats at all?

No way! You have to remember that professionals often have 4 people doing what you're doing : 1 writer, 1 penciler, 1 inker, and 1 colorist.

Yup. It sucks because comics take so much longer than paintings, but people take paintings so much more seriously :iconsingletearplz:

Urghhh that is the worst, when you do a whole lineart and you try to paint it and everything runs together :iconcryforeverplz:
I use Higgins and India ([link] and [link] ) and they both work really well.
