So I have folks asking about my process/what I count as a doodle comic a fair bit, and the answer is it kind of changes? mostly I guess doodle comics are a) fan comics of some sort and b) not ‘finished’ finished they usually have scribbly bgs or structure lines left in them. Mostly my drawing process is like above- a loose silhouette or line sketch, then some blocking in and refinement, complicated objects/establishing shots, and then line art last if I can be bothered ahaha um.
Generally I do thumbnails for all the pages and then work the dialogue over it, which I usually have a vague idea for but I always change it and try to streamline it as I go; I’m more visually driven, so I almost always start with image and then move on to the words. Sometimes (like the bottom image here) there are panels that I want to get down on the paper/screen before they melt out of my brain, so I just start and let the energy bubble out while it’s there.
i actually had a way better idea abt how to make this comic in a dream i had this afternoon but i had already done this bullshit flash comic so HAVE IT!!!!!!!!!! MAYBE ill make the improved version someday. but. @ONE. pls let my son be happy and Alive
