Recently my grandmother found out I’m queer. Her response was to tell me that she disapproves of me living with my “friend” (i.e. my girlfriend) and that I should give up my vile queer ways and become a Christian (Lol). She even sent me a bible. Here are its remains, which I made into black-out poetry.
Poem 1: Bisexual (from Leviticus 19:9)— “Have sexual relations with her. Have sexual relations with him. Have sexual relations with both a woman and a man. Have sexual relations with yourself. Vomit on everyone who does not respect you.”
Poem 2: Fisting (from Judges 8:5)— “water/ lap the water/ drink/go down to drink/your hands/go down/I give into your hands/go down/encouraged/down/on the seashore/the whole hand/your hand/inside/I get to the edge/and shout/grasping/crying out/Beth/Beth/Beth/Beth/Beth/God/I came”
Poem 3: A Letter to the Exiles (from Jeremiah 28:13) — “Ze said: ‘Do not let lies name you, nor harm your heart. Gather. Raise the sword against them. They scorn and reproach, for they have not listened— again and again have not listened.’ “
Poem 4: Child (from Ezekiel 16:22) — “Your father and your mother rubbed salt in. No one looked on you with pity or had compassion enough for you, for on the day you were born you were despised. Live! Grow. I looked at you and saw you were enough.”
Poem 5: Father (from Ezekiel 16:22) — “You never adored us. You became very angry. You took some out on us. Your sons and daughters were not enough? You slaughtered— in all your detestable practices— our youth.”
Poem 6: Misandry (from Acts 27:41) — “Dangerous men should be broken.”

Hey! Sure C: I’ll try to do it, but it’ll be a long answer!
Hmm first thing I did was define what format to use for the comic. This may sound obvious, but the first time I tried to do Awaken I chose a format that wasn’t very good for printing. This time I researched first and found this so I used it as a guide :)
I also chose and wrote down all the fonts and sizes and extra things I would need to repeat over and over again, because my memory is bad and I kept forgetting them. You can see that there’s an overall frame and vertical and horizontal lines. I do my vignettes freely in sai or photoshop so I decided to have those things set from the beginning to keep them consistent through the comic ( I just rotate and move them around).
Also, before starting to actually draw the comic, I work on the script. I work on it A LOT. I already have the general outline of the story and I do like 7 versions of the chapters before I settle for one. They are still not the final word on matters, since I usually keep changing things until the very last moment (when I’m actually drawing the pages) but it helps to have an idea of where you are going!
I use this format for writing scripts, it seems easier to read for me.
As you can see, mine is in Spanish with dialogs in English DERP! I try to keep in mind that the comic needs to be told through actions and speech, not thoughts, so I avoid character’s thoughts like the plague.
After that I do thumbnails. You’ve seen them before :D
OH LA LA!
They are crappy, I know, but they help to tackle vignettes fast and don’t loose the rythm of the script as I go reading it. Here are more thumbs, these ones are a bit more elaborate. like wooo shadows~
After that I move those thumbs to my page layout. I work on the double page format first, because I plan to print someday. You can see sometimes I keep the trashy thumbs, some others I need to redo them and change things. Anyways, in this step I only plan the composition of the page, I can deal with trashy thumbs.
Then I crop accordingly and move to single page format. At this point I start working on more proper sketches. When I need to do big backgrounds though, I work on a different file. I try to recycle the bgs that I know will take me more time, so I do them separately and in a huge file, that way I’ll have the freedom to play around with them on the future.
Next steps are easy. First I do lineart.
Then I do flat colors.
For this one I also had to do an extra step. I wanted the page to match the temperature of the cover I started to work on after, so I played around with the colors until it had more continuity.
Finally I added the background I worked on separately and It’s done! Resize for internet and page is ready :)
