Designing is some of the most fun you can have making a comic. It's where a lot of the creativity comes out. Where all of your hard work gathering reference and ideas come together to make something original. I break my designs up into these categories: Characters, locations, objects, and SFX/ extras. I like to take my time being as detailed as possible with my designs, since I essentially use them as home-made reference material. The more complicated something is, the more I'll look at it when I'm drawing. So Ill go through each of these categories in detail to give you an idea of how I do things.
