Creator, Jarod Roselló writes:
I like to keep my pencil draft loose and kind of messy. I find that inking (or digital inking, in this case) makes different kinds of lines than pencils make. I don’t want to get stuck trying to emulate or recreate a pencil line. Instead, I want my pencils to act as a general guide for my inks, and I want my inking to feel like drawing rather than tracing. It helps keep each stage feeling fresh and exciting, but also allows me to make spontaneous or improvisational changes as I go.
If you look at these pages, you’ll notice that my pencils are geared more towards working out the visual composition of the panels, rather than specific design elements. On several pages you can even find small notes I’ve left to myself—corrections I don’t want to forget to make when I ink.
