Project Description

Make a mini comic!

ASSIGNMENT

Your assignment here is simple: create your own comic! For this project, simply create a short, 4-page comic. Include a front and back cover. Use the skills I teach in the lessons to create any genre or style you'd like.

The genre, tone, and art style are completely up to you, but really stick to the page limit. This way the project can stay short, simple, and really fun — while still giving you the chance to exercise your skills and creativity.

DELIVERABLE

Share your 6 images in the online project gallery. A complete project will include:

  • front cover
  • back cover
  • 4-page mini comic
