Stage 1: Sketch (~1 hour)
Stage 2: Line art (~16 hours)
Stage 3: Basic colors (~5 hours)
Stage 4: Lighting (~12 hours)
Note that the times in the lineart and lighting, while they will still remain the most time-consuming parts of the process, should be slightly quicker in the future. The initial lineart was riddled with errors that took forever to fix (use a program to flip the Stage 3 image horizontally and you’ll see), and the lighting took a long time because we were deciding on the coloring style. Each subsequent event CG should take 20-30 hours, which means a turnaround of two weeks working 10-15 hours a week.
