My process from start to finish of Sacco took close to 9 years of drawing. I am attempting to be much faster on Chewy Noh. One element I am correcting is creating roughs for the entire book before finishing any page to completion.
So far I am 130 pages in (of roughs) with, hopefully, not too much more to go. I started in April 2017 and have completed 3 of 5 chapters. It’s hard, obviously with a day job and other commitments, to keep a steady pace. I feel giving myself daily goals has helped me tremendously to meet those long term goals as close to the deadlines I have set for myself.
