Get ready for an exciting experience with the multi-talented artist behind the artwork of “Jack of Spades” from Source Point Press. Joshua Werner brings you into his working studio where he takes you step-by-step through the comic book process!
While this class is intended for beginners, it will cover all stages, allowing you to go on to make and print an entire comic book if you choose. Starting with only blank paper, Josh will walk you through these exciting steps:
-Laying out your page
-Calculating the proper proportions for comic book size
-Understanding the difference between “bleed” pages and “non-bleed” pages
-Laying out your panels to tell the story
-Penciling (and the basics of drawing comic book characters)
-Inking techniques, and preparing your pages for printing
While this class will focus on comics with black and white interior pages, the subject of comic book coloring will also be discussed briefly. Subjects such as script writing, RGB vs. CMYK, lettering, and the digital side to comic creating will also be explained.
Prepare to learn all the industry secrets and start making your own comic books from scratch!
