It usually takes me a couple of hours to put together a Lightning Dog page. I draw everything by hand with a light pencil, and then I go over it with a thin sharpie. Next, I scan it, and fill in my lines with Photoshop. I do a little bit of shading, but nothing fancy. I just go over certain areas with one quarter opaque black to make the color a little darker. My fingers always really hurt after I do a page, because I just use the touchpad instead of a mouse or tablet.
