So, this script I'm drawing finally arrived. It's nice, tight, and it has some interesting characters. It's six pages long.
I have been reading other people's scripts for some time now, and the more I read them, the less I write my scripts this way. I appreciate all the detail the writers put in the panels, the descriptions and the page rhythm, but when it comes to working on my own scripts, I can't help but work differently.
Artists who also draw often don't write a full script to themselves, mostly because it's boring to do the same thing several times. I already create the story o in my head, then I have to write it, pencil it, ink it and letter it (and maybe color it)? That's too much of the same thing, if you ask me.
At the same time, I also think the story should be thought trough as much as one can, and I don't do anything out of laziness. I'm just directing my energy where it is most needed.
