In this course you will learn how to draw comic style art from the basic sketch to the final rendering. You will gain a better understanding on how to create illustrations with depth and dimension. By using line, shape, and forms we can construct anything. I will teach you how to simplify the things around you and then draw them with your own creative filter.
For this course you will need a pencil and paper or a drawing tablet. I will be using Traditional Comic Art tools such as 2h and HB lead. Bristol board smooth and various erasers. You will learn more about these tools as I am using them to create the work. You can still create and follow along with a regular pencil and paper.
