What makes a great comic artist?

What makes a great comic artist?

Question from James

“I’m interested in drawing from a comic/graphic perspective, and not so much a realism point of view. Does this course look at things like that also?”

Thanks,
James

Hi James,

Have you ever thought about what makes a great comic artist?

Classical drawing is the foundation of all visual arts.

If you have any plans to draw figurative artworks and portraits in any style, the knowledge of human anatomy and constructive drawing principles is an absolute must. Otherwise, your comic characters will always be an amateur parody of professional comic drawings.

If your artworks is ever to feature city-scapes, buildings, room interiors, or man-made objects, then knowledge and use of linear perspective is inevitable. Strong skills in this field will help you to depict the proper environment for your comic characters with a new level of confidence.

Learn what it takes to be a good craftsman, then you can bend the rules of anatomy and perspective to fit your chosen style.

The best comic artists had strong classical training, which enabled them to adapt realistic style to exaggerated, sometimes grotesque and funny ways of depicting characters and the world around them.

To answer you question, no we do not teach comic art, however, we give what is needed to go from an amateur to a pro, as you will use strong drawing skills in any style you chose to.
