The Process is Slowing Me Down

It's September and I'm trying to think of ways to speed up my comic process further. I've found a couple things:

1) I can't draw straight to the Cintiq.. unless I spend a lot of time on my underdrawing first. Proportions come out all wrong, line quality is total hash.

2) I'm faster on paper, but much more susceptible to mistakes. Glaring mistakes. (That and I've been drawing on printer paper, which isn't very... archival... I have some bristol board lying around...)

3) Scanning and cleaning inked linework is a pain with this cruddy scanner. It's great for drafts, but terrible scan quality for color and b/w. (Everything appears... "hazy".

So possible solutions:

1) Ink roughly, scan, and re-ink digitally in Photoshop.

2) Get a new scanner (ideally legal sized.. T_T;) and start inking manually again.

3) Find some new process/technique to speed things up.

I'll be trying various things over the next few strips to see what works. ^^; I can't be slow forever. TT;;

Also -

I can't begin to tell you how this arc is retelling my 5th grade year (including the summer before it.)
