Using Model Sheets

Model sheets are important not just for animation projects but for comic strips too. Even if you aren’t working with a team of artists, it is very useful to capture, for reference purposes, the way that a character looks. Of course, characters evolve and change the more that you draw them, but with the help of a model sheet you can keep them reasonably consistent. Unlike in animation, a comic strip character may not be drawn as frequently, sometimes weeks or months pass between appearances, so having a model sheet for quick reference is a great asset. This is one of my Bentley model sheets from my web comic Bug Pudding.
