Boy, this page. I decided to do something different and set my phones stop watch thing up, and set it to go whenever I was working on the comic, just to see /exactly/ how long it took me. No mistakes made, I paused it dutifully every time I took a break or alt tabbed or whatever.

The total time:
5 hours, 13 minutes, 55 seconds

3 hours, 38 min of that was spent on lineart alone
1 hour, 13 min spent on coloring
22 minutes spent on the text
(And all for a total of about 127 layers used in Paint Tool Sai)

Since the page was already drawn and scanned by the time I got this idea I couldn't record that. But a page takes me about an hour to draw up on paper, and maybe 10 minutes to scan, clean up, etc.

To be honest this page felt faster than usual, even. Usually I make like a /ton/ of mistakes. But this time it went sooo smoothly. Yeah, not a bad time all things considered, I think, especially since it was tabletless. I wonder how much time a page will take me /with/ the tablet? I'll have to conduct further studies later.

(I think I'm gonna stick to using the size 2 brush! I just love those thicker lines...)

Welp anyway! Off to a plane ride later tonight, ergh. I should be able to be online though through my phone, but muhhh..
Hopefully I don't crash and die!

Finally returning home to Illinois. /Finally/

(I already made my friend promise to let everyone know if I do die hahaha, but I still have some pages set to release...)

Haha, poor Felix. But maybe he'll have more freedom while he's suspended and the three can go on adventures together. :-D

Mr. Vareel
So wait, do they pay him? Λnd he's not getting paid while he's suspended? Is that what's going on, because otherwise it sounds like a forced vacation.

Haha, yes, he gets paid ;] this "forced vacation" most certainly won't have pay, haha.

I definitely prefer the thicker lines, and I like your shading here!
5 hours 14 minutes (approx.), huh? I can't tell if that's good time or bad time. I finish a strip quicker than that (or I think I do) but I don't do whole pages, and I'm not even so careful about neatness. (Bad Binyamin!)

Thanks!:D I'm lovin the thicker lines too. Dat Felix...

Haha, I don't know if it's good or bad. I think it's pretty reasonable considering I use a mouse!

Well, I personally LOVE the thicker lines here!
So, approximately five hours? That's a respectable amount of time there. It definitely shows! :)
Don't crash the plane!

Thanks! I'm rather pleased with them myself.;)
Heheh, yeah, it could be a lot worse I think.:D I look forward to timing myself on the tablet...

I'll /try/ but no promises! Hah

I agree with you, the thicker lines do make more of an impact. I think at a little over 5 hours per page your doing quite well, especially since the art keeps looking better and better!
Seabiscuit 1st Aug 2014, 10:56 AM edit delete reply
Heheh...Thank you!:D
I'm glad I seem to be improving somewhat!

Awww poor Felix...
Seabiscuit 1st Aug 2014, 1:15 PM edit delete reply
But at least now he has some free time!
VulturesUnderTheMoon 1st Aug 2014, 1:16 PM edit delete reply
Yah more time to be in the comic.
BTW: it only takes me like half an hour to do a whole page, text and everything.

Wow, very nice! I am jealous, hahah.

Hahaha, for sure!;)
Poor Felix really doesn't have much luck!

I wonder how many things he carries he has forgotten before. Poor Felix seems to be more than a little spacey.
Seabiscuit 1st Aug 2014, 11:22 PM edit delete reply
Hahah, he's really not /that/ bad, but he has his moments. Id say Jeff is more of a scatter brain.:)
