About This Class

Starting a comic can be very intimidating. But this class is all about how to quick your webcomic script into a rough draft!

These sketches won't be cute, but we'll cover the basics of page layout, composition, and so much more! This is primarily aimed towards artists who have never created a webcomic before, but comickers of all levels will find something of value. We'll talk about characters, establishing shots, tonal value, and other elements of a comic page. If you've been wondering how to turn your written word into drawing pictures, this is the class for you!

Grab your script, some pencils and paper, and let's start that webcomic!
