What will you learn?

Basics

We'll start by briefly going over the history of comic books, publishing conventions, and learn the basic terminology we'll be using throughout the course.

Comic Art Styles

After understanding the basics, we'll go over approaches of different artists to handling individual elements of comic art, such as character, inking, panel layout, lettering and more.

Sequential Art Theory

Before making our own graphic novels, we'll familiarize ourselves with with the theory behind the craft. Understanding closure & transitions, pacing, rhythm, pairing words and images, composition, clarity, readability, types of shots, and composing pages/spreads.

Pipeline

We'll examine different ways a production can work, including planning our book with publishing in mind, how to mix traditional and digital media and how to work in a team vs. Solo.

Story

An overview of writing a story with the graphic novel format in mind. Characters, setting, story structure, script writing, and writing with drawing.

Drawing Traditionally / Digitally

Once we're ready to get dirty, we'll learn how to actually draw our pages, setting up a page, penciling, inking and coloring it, in both digital and traditional forms.

Publishing

Before wrapping up we'll talk about getting a publisher, or how to self publish the book yourself. We'll cover printing options, book design, distribution options and marketing strategy.
