And guess what! All rough backgrounds are completed. When I return to them it will be to add further foreground details, do line cleanup and input them into PSP so that I can color them.
Phase 2 for now, though, is a move away from hand drawn sketches towards music. I will be using Finale to produce the music for the various sketches in MIDI format.
Phase 3 will be character designs and animations but that's a while off yet.
