Warehouse Before-After by kaiverta Warehouse Before-After by kaiverta
Woo, yay. I decided I'd upload this to give you all a basic idea of how my manga pages start.

See, I sketch them out, and on that sketched paper I add what I think they should be saying, yadayada.

Then I scan it into the computer.

Then I open it in Adobe Photoshop CS3.

Then I open up a new document and create a new layer titled 'Lineart', which is on top of the 'background' layer.

Then I clone the sketched panels onto the 'background' layer and arrange them as I want them to look.

Then I go to the lineart layer and, with a one-pixel paintbrush, line over the sketched drawings.

Then, I go to the 'background' layer and erase the sketches.

Then I make another layer on top of the 'lineart' layer, labelled 'shadows'. I shade everything on that layer.

And the rest is pretty straight forward. I add the text first so I know where I want it to go, and I leave each piece of text as its own layer and place the white speech boxes on the background layer. Yep.

Anywho, woot. :D
