Recently I was watching a documentary on Stan Lee & Marvel Comics, which hosts my favorite comic characters, & I was inspired to start back working on a project I’ve had for years. When I was younger I came up with an idea of a troubled college student who stumbles upon powers. But one of the things that halted the project was the back & forth I would have to do to create the comic. I really hate the time it takes to pencil, scan, ink, color, etc etc. So I took a good look at the tools available on my favorite device, the iPad, & wondered would it cut down the time to produce it. The first tool I invested in was Celtx. I was amazed at some of the features it had especially for writing a comic. Here is some of the features:

CELTX
iOS (check the website for Android info)
-Page breaks, numbered pages & WYSIWYG output
-Pinch/zoom page & font size (50% to 400%)
-Reorder and delete full scenes
-Bold/Italic/Underline
-Add coloured notes
-Mores and Continueds
-White or parchment background
-AirPrint or email scripts as pdf and text files
-Universal app – buy it once and use on iPad iPhone & iPod Touch

So yeah, I used to use Scripts Pro but having a comic scripting template is just more convenient. Ive had the app for a couple of days & Ive already cranked out a lot of pages. You can even add a note wherever you want to stay on track with the outline of the story. The format of the scripting is so smooth that it made me jump over to Sketchbook Pro, which I’ll cover later, & start sketching panels & character placement.

Here’s a quick sketch of Wax done in Sketchbook Pro:
