Just to tie things off, a lot of the stuff I've shared over the last week I've found before COVID-19 and during it. It works for both my own art stuff and for my day job, and it's still stuff that I'm figuring out for myself. I'm sure the appeal of parts is fairly specific to the way I'm wired and probably won't work for a lot of work styles out there. But figured it was worth recording all the same. At the very least the next time I'm in a rut, I'll be able to remember some ways to get back on track.
I started working from home on March 9, so it's been almost two months. I started working on this chapter around the same time, so I'm averaging about one page per week, which is faster than I expected, even if it feels slow when looking at the project as a whole. This chapter has around 50 pages. I've finished six.... which means I have about 40 more. That said, only 12 more are the same 16-panel structure so I'm a third through those; after that it opens up into quadrant panels, full page splashes, and pretty stark pages with very little illustration at all. Hoping things will speed up by then! Might get there by... August? *shudders*
Above is an example of one panel with some two-point perspective. Below are all of the pages so far. All six of them haha. It's still satisfying to see them all together though! There are almost 100 individual panels here!
