I was going to publish this update on Monday, when I had just 8 pages left to sketch. But then I waited and yesterday I was down to 6 pages left. Then I waited again and now I only have one page left to finish sketching, plus sketch whatever the cover is going to be. Therefore, inking will most certainly be starting this weekend, which is very nice to say.
Inking can be either the easiest or the hardest part, depending on the panel (simple character shots are great, scenes with elaborate angles, backgrounds, etc will usually slow me down, mentally and physically).
