About This Class

This course is designed to give you all the technical know-how you need to create a comic or graphic narrative without any fancy digital art equipment. This 20-minute course covers making your script, sketching thumbnails, digitizing your natural medium art and optimizing it in Photoshop, layout and text overly in In Design, and, of course, exporting your work for sharing or submitting! 

I developed this course with the beginner in mind, so you don't have to have any previous comics experience to follow along with this class. You'll just need your computer and your cell phone.

You will need In Design and Photoshop installed on your computer. If you don't already have them, you can download them instantly for a free trial at adobe.com/downloads.
