Oh I forgot the first step is to let go and write a story. My best stories happen when I let them.
In between the painting I tweak the story.
Next I scan the art, enhance color and remove the backgrounds. Finally I create a digital layout of the book and paste everything in.
Last I choose the font, layout, cover and color.
Next is the wait. I take a break, then come back with a fresh pair of eyes, grammar and theme. Is the language right for the audience. I analyze the characters and several rounds of editing. I get why other artists say that not every part of the process will be fun. This process is so emotional.
