1. Concept and Rough Sketch
2. Drafting
3. Shading
4. Inking
5. Coloring

1. Concept and rough
2. cleaning selected rough sketch/concept
3. inking (optional)
4. shading. whites, blacks, midtones, very rough shading.
5. Smooth shading
6. Colors

Overall, do what feels best to you. That's just the way I do things.

changed it again.
right now I'm using
1.simple guidelines
2.rough sketch
3. fade then rough sketch again,(this time draw the detail more and soft shading to those that will be inked with dark area
4. fade again then line and ink them.
5. toning.

I guess I prefer this one this time, don't know when it will change again though =_=

So Drafting is something like Lineart? I wonder is this true. Can you color over your shading? Would it look right?

You can do that if you have blending modes.

1. write script
2. make thumbnails from script
3. use thumbnails to make a rough draft
4. work from thumbs and rough drafts and draw that poop
5. boom awesome mango page now

your drafts and your scripts are the most important stages because they dictate the pace of the story that you are planning. make sure it doesn't go too fast or too slow, and drafts can be re-drawn again and again. (scripts can be re-written, too!) i waste more paper on thumbs and scripting than i do on the actual pages i draw now. if you plan your entire story out right, then the rest should be a breeze
