“Time-lapse in Clip Studio”



I've been doing some time-lapse vids in Clip Studio to show off some trouble I had with the pages I'm remastering. This one is 5 minutes and deals with coloring/rendering the 3D models in a way that fit with the overall aesthetic.

This is my starting point. Trying to adjust the layout to be more easily read.

This is from Chapter 1, page 26 or 27.

When I showed Sanders my initial layout, he insisted that the first 3 panels remained from the first layout.
You can see how the flow changed by removing that one panel of Fink at his desk.
So I went back and redid it.

I then went back to my standard panel format, we can save the fancy out of the box panels for special moments. It made more sense.


July 2, 2021 Wow. Thanks for sharing this. It's always interesting to see other artist's work process. For this page it was a lot of trial and error to get the right layout and flow.
July 2, 2021 I'm always interested in seeing what other artists do as well. And hoo boy, trial & error is just the tip of the iceberg with this page-- it took me 2-3 days to finally be satisfied! Thanks for reading & commenting.

July 2, 2021 Looks cool, the new page has a better flow, is visually more pleasing.
And I concur: The second panel really is important for the scene flow (not so much the visual page flow).
Although, I liked the table very much :) It gives a touch of realism, and a very concentrated highlight on some important elements. Or maybe it's because I prefer tables generally over written text ... I have to admit though that it restrains the eye, no easy flow with that. Anyway, objection :)1000 people, 10000 opinions, Don't read to much into this

July 2, 2021 ... Oh, the last sentence got garbled somehow.
July 2, 2021 lol-- no no, I get it! Well, I'm glad someone liked the table. We really did give it a lot of thought, but end of the day, we need to provide the necessary info for the reader to follow along. The new pages are already so much more in sync with the current art... it's really something.

Been drawing this comic since 2014, so it's been a fun learning experience and seeing how I can now tackle these early pages have been reassuring in my story telling in a visual manner.
