Drawing this comic has really weird rhythms. I took this page from script to finished in three days, but there’s a page before it that took something like an entire week.
I try to make a habit of turning as much as possible into reusable elements. All those little fairy bells, for instance, are drawn with a handful of graphic styles – one for the stem, another for the leaves, and another for the actual flower. I can just pick that out of the style palette, make a quick dash with my stylus, and there it is. It’s coming up with all these things in the first place that takes ages, sometimes.
