The work was (almost) all digital. A piece of “real” paper for the mini-storyboard. Dialogs written on an OpenOffice Spreadsheet, drawings (pencils, cases, balloons, lettering and inking…) with Manga Studio EX, and colors with Photoshop. All on a PC Enface Filo M25 with Windows XP Pro hooked to a Cintiq 12WX tablet.
Timing: 1 hour for texts and storyboard, 6 hours for pencils (1 hour dinner break), 7 hours for inks (sums up to about 14 hours to complete black and white pages) and then 1 hour of rest and 7 hours for colors. Total: 22 hours. And then about 1 hour to print everything (on postcards).
Thanks to Associazione Vastagamma for the organization and to my colleagues the climbed the mountain with me.
Texts are in italian.
