My comic partner and I are in the process of updating one of our comic series. We’re doing this in part to fill some plot holes (and potentially dig some new ones). However we’re also updating the artwork as it is quite old now and doesn’t match the current style of the comic. This update has afforded us to go back and revisit backgrounds and locations and give them a much needed makeover.
I am a firm advocate for finding efficient ways to get work done. Given we try to turn over a 40+ panel comic episode every two weeks, it’s in our best interest to have the most streamlined process we can to save us time and a heap of stress. One aspect we noticed was other series having a stock of background and location images that they would use over and over again to help orientate the reader, as one might see in a television show.
When you’re planning a comic, particularly a serialised one, it’s a good idea to create backgrounds that you can use. Having a stock library can save you a great deal of time. We create these stock images/locations in different times of day as well, such as at night, dusk or day. You can even mix it up by introducing environmental elements such as rain or snow.
The effort you put in to creating these stock images can save you so much stress down the line.
