About This Class


Join comic artist George Folz for a class exploring the essentials of webcomics- from digitially establishing a perspective grid and creating printable blue-lines, to pencilling, inking, lettering, and ultimately, digital coloring. Recently George has been working on his project, #darthdays, where he sketched a scene from one of the original Star Wars trilogy movies every day for a year and he will take you on a journey into this process with this class.

Learn how to take a still from your favorite movie and create an original comic scene. You will select your frame, learn to sketch your idea and digitize that sketch into a comic drawing. You will then learn various inking techniques to refine your drawing, and learn George's expert digital rendering and coloring style.

This class is ideal for comic artists looking to flex their muscles on a cool project or experts looking for some new techniques to try. All you need is an excitement for sketching and a favorite movie to recreate!
