New Patreon Benefit: Behind-the-Scenes Pencils and Inks (More Pages Added!)

Categorized in:

I’m super-excited to announce a new feature that’s launching today for Patreon backers at $5 and up: behind the scenes pencils and inks. (June 2, 2018: 78 new pages have been added to the stories Ashes to Ashes, Cured, Ingress and Egress, Live Through This, Long Live the King, Make Westing, and Quants.)

In addition to posting the finished (inked and lettered) comics pages on the Split Lip site, selected stories in the archive will now also feature the in-process pages that artists sent me during the creation of the stories.

For each page with this behind-the-scenes material, you’ll see the finished, lettered comic page and have buttons to reveal the pencils and/or the inks. What I love about this is that it gives great insight into the artistic process and lets you see in detail how pages evolve throughout their creation.

I haven’t seen this feature on other webcomic sites (though let me know if it exists; I’d love to see how others do it), so I believe it provides a truly unique reward. If you want to get access to this bonus, plus all the other content that comes with it, support us at Patreon.

As of today, 31 stories in the Split Lip archive will have pencils, inks, or both added to them (that’s a total of over 650 pages of bonus material, and there’s more to come!)  Here’s the full list:
