I occasionally like to use stat panels, or panels that are mostly copied from one panel to the next. It’s not a laziness thing (or so I tell myself) but more to convey certain comic beats, like pauses between actions and reactions or dialogue and response. In most cases, I at least try to change some of the elements between panels. In this case, Ril and Roka obviously change a bit, but I also made sure to change the asteroids, since the ship is supposed to be moving, after all.

    That’s a smart idea, do you light box or do it on the computer?

    I do the stat panels on computer. If I REALLY want to save some time, I actually color (in this case, shade) the entire panel before making any changes. The other option would be to make the changes in the line art stage and then color both panels completely. But every little shortcut helps.
