Colored in Adobe Photoshop, the strip is now finished (keep scrolling to see earlier pencil draft and the inked version, pre-color):
4:09pm ET - Inking complete:
Animal Nuz comic strips all start with pencil drawing, like this:
Time for the inking! Now I will ink over the pencil, using a light box, so I can use a fresh piece of paper. This usually takes between 1.5 to 2 hours. Please check back in around 3pm ET today to see how the inking process went.
Then I'll scan the inked cartoon into my computer and color it in Photoshop! The coloring also takes somewhere between 1.5 and 2 hours, so the completed strip will be ready around 5pm ET. Please check back in!
Feel free to ask me any questions you may have about the Nuz process!
Big h/t to HoundDog for suggesting I post a "making of" edition of the Nuz! <3
