I receive the script, and any other corresponding information, ie: character bios, possible concept work. I spend a couple of days reading material, and designing characters and blocking for story boards. 1A. We have a meeting at this point to make sure that what I gather from the information is what you envision. 2. Storyboarding.

We discuss details of story and pages. 3. Penciling. I draw the comic, on 11x17 boards bringing action and life to the words you had written. The hand drawn boards are then scanned to be reviewed. 3A. Quick meeting, proof of work, sometimes multiple meetings. 4. Inking, coloring and word bubbles. Inking is more so replaced by cleaning up penciled line work and darkened. The coloring is then added in to create a vibrant completion of the story to help capture the imagination of the reader and to put them into the center of your world. 4A. Brief meetings, proof of work. Any and all further collaborative measures can be discussed at this point, i.e: continuation of story, publishing, marketing, additional advertising, convention appearances and other projects.
