This is the method I use to structure my doujins. It doesn't necessarily mean that it has to work for everybody, you always must choose the method that suits you best
Experience has taught me that I ALWAYS must write all ideas I suddenly come up with!
The more number of ideas you write, the better will be for your doujinshi story. (I used to miss a LOT of wonderful ideas when I didn't write them). I NEVER apply this method to ALL doujin pages at the same time, but a group of pages
(in this tutorial you can see that I only did it with my doujin intro), since I always could change my mind and edit some dialogues/situations.
If I’m planning to make a manga/comic for SALE
, I NEVER shade/screentone after finishing the lineart of a page or a group of pages, I prefer to wait until I’m completely done with the lineart of ALL the manga/comic since my style is constantly changing.
This way people will see uniformity in your manga/comic, not a collage of different styles (I must stress that this was one of the main reasons why I ended up abandoning a few doujins in the past).
Without further ado I hope'll find this handy. And remember, always choose the method that suits you best! ^^
