RCG: How the Magic is Made
Part One: The Storyboard
Rich and Chris meet every morning to discuss the idea for the strip and agree who will draw and who will ink that day. This is usually decided by 'old enoch' - a reliable 20p which gives a near perfect 50/50 head:tail ratio.
The storyboard is important as it is important to agree on the basics of the days strip before they spend the effort drawing and inking.
Part Two: Finishing
Once both Rich and Chris are happy with the draft, it is lined and shaded.
The imporant task of adding the colour comes next.
Once the colour has been added to the strip it is scanned and uploaded to totl.net. At midnight a script automagically links it in.
