About This Class

You voted in the last class, and the winner was Drawing Comics!

When planning my "Making a Comic" class out I desided it was too big to put into one class. So This class will be the first in a "Making a Comic" series. The series will include:

- Character Design

- Storytelling and Layout

- Penciling, Inking and Coloring

By the end of the series you will have your own 4 page comic!

For the project

- start by telling us who your charcters are.

- Then tell us what genre your comic is. Is it a comedy, a horror, a detective piece, ect?

- Next post sketches of your character's face.

- Then post sketches of your character's body.

- Next post a drawing of your characters.

- Finally post your characters to Instagram with the #skillsharedailysketch and tag me @ryanvatz
