Are they all going to be back-and-forth between a therapist and his patient? if so, you could get away with two actual frames that you'd copy and paste everywhere else: that one you've got there and the client on the couch.
Yeah, I realize now how off the perspectives are. That might be because I drew the chair by copying one I found on Google image search, which was at a different angle from how I'm drawing the characters. I'll probably have to re-draw the whole thing, but at least it's good practice.
The majority of the strips are going to be back and forth dialogues between the therapist and various clients, so I will likely fall into lazy-artist syndrome and copy/paste everything except for when I need to change their posture to convey emotion or something. There will be occasional strips where the therapist is supervising a trainee, or where the client is putting what they learned into practice in the real world. It'll be hella difficult when I actually have to draw new things, so I'm hoping to draw out each character as much as I can
On the plus side, this comic has the backing of a wealthy therapist who can afford to advertise like mad so it might actually get an audience. Also, I'm actually earning more than minimum wage per hour I spend working on these strips, which I think makes me more successful than 99% of people who've ever done a webcomic. Sheer dumb luck has finally worked out for me!
