So, I thought I’d share a few process pics of how I made There’s a Tiger on the Bus. It’s only a small adventure in comic/book-making but it’s a nice first step for me, I had oodles of fun with it, and I’d love to do some more :D I even got a few copies professionally printed and the colours just blew my mind! When I can afford it, I think a pro printer would be a wise investment.
Firstly, I had nothing of this idea written down (which is naughty, I know). It literally came together in my head and I drew it and amended it on the fly. I would not recommend working like this all the time or for bigger projects xD
I started with a really rough sketch. Because I knew I wanted to make a physical version that folded in to a booklet, I laid out guidelines for where the artwork could go. I also wanted nice white borders – fewer problems when it comes to printing. Originally, the little boy was going to narrate the whole encounter, so I made scribbles for text placement.
