Lackadaisy Process by tracyjb Lackadaisy Process by tracyjb
I'm really, really sorry about the lack of update, guys. Struggling a lot with the comic lately.
I put this panel process rundown together for Draw! recently, though, and even though it's not very exciting, I figured at least it's something I could share in the meantime.

This process has gotten vastly more complicated since I started working on Lackadaisy. Pages used to be almost 100% pencil with just a little sepia tone added digitally. Now, after penciling, a panel often requires hours of additional work. (Put 12 or 15 panels together per page, and it adds up to at least part of the reason I fail so hard at regular updates.)

Other Lackadaisy stuff is here.
and Facebook announce site updates too.

This is such a wonderful and informative breakdown.  Thank you for this!  I tried this technique because I just love the results in your comic.  Your black and white is just gorgeous! But I see what you mean about how long it takes.  I didn't even come close to the detail you do and it still took a very long time.   I don't think I mastered that lovely sepia tone you always achieve.…

I can't stop favoriting everything because it is all so fantastic!  I discovered your comic yesterday and finished it earlier today, because WOW it is great!  Keep up the good work!

Wolf: Don't you worry at all about the lack of updates, your comics are more than worth it!

Amazing. My idea of making a background is  line behind my characters. ;) which is very, very horrible.
