Since OR_NGE: CHAPTER ONE has officially officially come out now, I feel like I can post something about the #process.
I laid out the whole dang thing first (approx. 325 pages after first draft) which took all the time.
I'd have to look up the exact dates I started on it, but I wrote the short story that this comic is based on in my Junior year of college (2009? 2010?!) As you can see from the picture below I started laying out the second sketchbook (after I filled the first one) on April 2nd, 2012 (more than two years ago by my excellent math.)
The "script" that I did (picture 3 below) is the same type I've been using for a while, where I try to fill up a small square detailing what will transpire on each page before I draw it.
To sum up, the idea for this story came about five years ago and I now have 27 pages done and about 300 more to go.
