In case anyone is wondering... I was originally intending on doing these on much larger pieces of paper, in a more standard vertical "full page" setup. Then, I realized my scanner wouldn't fit it... so I got stuck with 8.5x11 sheets of paper.
My process is currently not-so-normal. I print a rough idea of the box layout, so I can keep the scale the way I want them, and I sketch/line in pencil. I do some of the shading and details in pencil, and then use my scanner to copy it onto card stock. (Pencil and watercolor mix poorly, and it allows me to retry if I mess up horribly) I color and "ink" it with watercolor pencils, resulting in the not-so-normal look.
I would love suggestions on how to improve upon this, though I am intending to continue to color with watercolor for the first arc at least.
I am considering picking up pens to actually ink the lines, now that I'm trusting my hands more. Any suggestions where to start with that?
Why is his name important here? He says he didn't know why everyone was saying his name, but you don't really show it & I'm curious if there's a significance I'm just not grasping or if it's something that hasn't been revealed yet.
@Stella: I was trying to make a bit of a joke. His name is Marcus, which is sometimes shortened to Mark. The currency used in this setting is marks. He is overhearing shop keepers, and getting slightly confused.
Unfortunately, I wasn't very clear about this. Also, probably one of those "it was funnier in my head" sort of things.
