I am so excited! I have been getting more story ideas and I am very proud of the Master Page Template I created in Photoshop for my book. "The DC Comics Guide to DIGITALLY DRAWING Comics" by Freddie E Williams II has been a very useful tool. In Chapter 6 he talks about setting up your Master Page. What is so amazing about this is how he maps out the process step by step. Not only do you set up guide lines for your comic pages, but he also walks you through setting up all the layers for sketch ideas, scripts, references and your comic panels 1 through 5. Now comes the work of completely designing ALL of my characters, creating reusable paths (logos and costume/ clothing designs, buildings, etc...) and finishing the story boards so I can start working on pencils then digitally inking pages.
Note: the Master Page Template only took me 4 or 5 times before I got it right. Practice makes perfect.
