Comics are a popular medium, but bringing a comic idea to life is a unique challenge. A good comic requires more than the ability to draw and more than the ability to write! It requires a deep understanding of how to bring ideas -and people- together in order to create a project to blow the audience away!
Here you will learn how to: create an asset list, script, thumbnails, story-board, draft & lettering.
NOTE: please see FAQ to ensure that you will be getting the most out of this class.
-Stable internet connection.
-Photoshop *OR* PS Elements *OR* GIMP *OR* Other image manipulation software that features layers.
Will you be teaching comic art/how to draw comics?
This is *NOT* a drawing class! Instead, we will be learning how to cohere art and story into a comic project.
Will I need art/photoshop computer programs?
That is best, but not strictly required.
Students must be able to upload and manipulate art virtually. At minimum, you will require a scanner and a photo manipulation program like Photoshop.
(Alternatively, GIMP is a free program that has all needed features. Get it here: https://www.gimp.org/ ).
Do I need additional art resources like model figurines?
Anything that will help the student create better art may be useful, but is not required.
