Now you should know pretty much everything regarding comic creation here in CSP. You probably wanted to see how I created a comic page from scratch, which is something I like to see when I'm learning from another artist, but everything I have gone into (such as inking, coloring, and flatting) has already been covered in the cartoon illustration chapter. Just multiply this by 50 and you have it for comics. Here's what I did after the Drawing the storyboard heading:
- Loose pencils. I wanted to experiment a little bit at this stage, so they're more elaborate than they should be:
Figure 8.86 – Loose pencils
- Tight pencils. To be honest here, I worked too much on the loose pencils and I realized it would be a waste of time doing tight pencils. This can happen sometimes.

- Flats. I will not show these to you to prevent you from developing a headache!
