I prefer to draw the whole comic strip on paper with lettering and everything- y’know just so I actually have a sketch and a finished piece of art aside from just having a web file to post. But some days, you’ve gotta be a graphic designer and put the pieces and parts down in an efficient manner.
So, I did the layout/sketch (very loosely), then inked panel borders and lettering and bubbles. Then, I made a whole ‘nother sheet of bits and pieces that could be colored and placed where needed.
And voila! after a little digital jazz, there’s a comic strip without a piece of original paper art that you can point to and say “That’s Wednesday’s cartoon.”
