Scattered Comics Studios provides our clients with everything they need to get their idea and comic creation to come to life. Our average turn-around time for most 24 page comicbook projects is 2 months. This time is an average as it depends on Artist speeds and in large part to the client’s amount of changes to the artwork, and text. (And the time it takes to Approve the pages in each step of the production).
The Approval Process:
Being a client with Scattered Comics Studios allows you to watch and approve through the entire process of creating your comic book. It will be up to your judgement to Approve a page or to make changes.
Stage 1 THUMBNAILS: In the THUMBNAIL stage, you will be shown miniture sketches of how your comic page will be designed. (Click here to learn what a THUMBNAIL is). Though the THUMBNAILS are little more then scribbles, you will be able to see the direction the Artist is planning to design your page. You can ask to make changes or Approve. (At this stage don’t be concerned with the artwork being pretty as this is just a quick scribble of how they plan to draw the actual page, not the real artwork.
Stage 2 PENCILS: The PENCILS or CLEANS stage of the process will be the actual artwok of the page. It is very important to make your final changes to the artwork at this stage. Once the PENCILS/CLEANS are Approved there is no going back because it goes to INK afterwards. (** If there are changes to the artwork after the INKS are applied, we will have to re-draw the page from the beginning and have to charge you for a new page.)
Stage 3 INKS: In the INKS stage there are really no surprises from the PENCIL stage. So, its more of a look over to see if anything was missed before going to the COLORS stage.
Stage 4 COLORS: After INKS are Approved, it will be COLORED (If required).
Stage 3 LETTERS-Prepress: TYPESETTING (Word Balloons, Letters, Special Effects Sounds)and then prepare it for print.
