I just finished inking Terminal tonight, and I’m so happy with how the process has gone. All that’s left is to scan the last three pages and then add screentone. Above is a panel from one of the pages I inked tonight.
I’m hoping to have the comic ready to share online within the next two weeks!
The best resource I’ve found for people wanting to make comics.
In January and February, I spent most of my free time going through the book Drawing Words & Writing Pictures to learn how to make comics.

Sharing the first page and some information about my first multi-page comic.
Here’s the first page from the comic project that I’ve been working on. It’s called Terminal, and I started it at the beginning of the year. I started with the script and then created the thumbnails. Since then I’ve been working on the full-size pages. It’ll be 9 pages long, and I’ve got 4 of the pages drawn and inked. I’ve begun the process of editing the pages and adding screentone in Clip Studio Paint.
It’s my first multi-page comic, and I’ve truly been enjoying the process of making it. I’ve learned a ton, and I’ll be sure to share that once the project is done. I’m hoping to finish Terminal by the end of March. I’ll upload it here and other places online to read for free once it’s done. I’m interested in printing a few copies for friends and family, but I’ll cross that bridge when I get there!
