Pains Taking

I've been working on a fantasy story for awhile now, and I think I'm ready to start producing finished pages. My plan all along has been to do the comic in a super-detailed heavily crosshatched style.  It fits the narrative.

The only drawback is that it is incredibly time consuming. This first panel took hours, which means that the book as a whole will probably take years to complete. I draw fast, but this gives me pause.

A friend of mine told me that nobody else would do a comic like Hedra because nobody else would have the patience to do it. No one else would obsess about page layout and the ways an eye can move around a page the way I would. I kind of get the same feeling with this crosshatching. No one else will do it because it just takes too long.

Which might be good in a way, but whenever you're the only doing something, you've got to wonder, at least a little bit, whether you're the only one because you're an idiot.
