Between the two comics I made for school, I’ve developed a pretty steady work-flow.  I thought that I would post this here for my readers so that they could see my process and (hopefully) improve upon it.

Step 1:  Create the characters.
Step 2: Write the story arc, and put it into a storyboard.
Step 3: Begin your animating process.  For some, this will involve pen and inks; for others it will all be done on the computer.  Either way, get to it!  Since this is a visual medium, try to animate your characters so that the reader can understand what the are doing without the text.
Step 4:  Dialog.  This is where you include facts that fill in the details of the communications you animated in step 3.
