Create Your Own Comics

The ability to draw is paramount when it comes to creating comics.

That said it’s easy to forget that the pencils alone will never be seen in the end product. Ultimately, it’s the Inked contours of that drawing and rendered Colors that are combined to create a finished comic book illustration.

In this video you’ll discover the true and tried, digital inking insights I’ve gained throughout my experience in comic book illustration. Inking over the pencils drawn up for Mikey in last weeks demo ( ), I’ll show you exactly how to apply these techniques so that you too can give your penciled comic art some slick, streamlined, color ready lines.

I’ve also taken the time to create an in depth narration for the video, so that as you watch you’ll gain a deeper understanding of the process and the thinking that goes behind it.

I got sidetracked and went through “My Demons” folder and picked a number of my favorite sketches for an unreleased comic I’ve been drafting since Sept last year. _(:3/  z)_ Oh wow…. So many things I’ve put on hold.

My Drawing Comics class is now AVAILABLE.

Video here:

I’ve been creating comics professionally for over 10 years. From my own studies, insight from peers and mentors, and material from the best books on the subject I’ve boiled everything I’ve learned about the art form into one class.

This class is broken down in two parts:

Part I - Instruction

In this section I go point by point in a methodical, easy to understand, lecture style on the principles of making comics that effectively tell your story and elicit an emotional response from the reader.

Part II - Demonstration

In this section I create a comic from the ground up, and show you how to apply the principles taught in part I to create your own comic.

Note: Part II is an ongoing segment and will be posted to the class page as each part is completed beginning the first week of May.

“When someone’s made you unhappy, it can be hard to bring yourself out of the sadness that results. It’s important that there are people in the world that aren’t just fighting against the bullies, but comforting the bullied.” - Sara

Almost 1 in 4 students have reported being bullied during the school year. More than half the time, bullying stops within 10 seconds of a bystander stepping in.

dosomething‘s “Comics to the Rescue” project aims to provide bullying intervention tactics while spreading awareness about this important issue. Create your own anti­-bullying superhero comic with a free template and you’ll also be entered for the chance to win a $3,000 scholarship.

New Nick Flash Game - Loud House: Cartoon Creator

Nick put out a new online flash game for the Loud House which allows you to create your own Loud House comic, as well as make your own original character, and have it in the comic, interacting with the Loud family. 

Link to the game:

Both aspects of it are pretty limited, but it’s still something, and I’ve seen people get creative with worse. Can’t choose a name, though.

Now you can self insert, even more, and be one step closer to your waifu for laifu. Don’t worry, there’s no judgement here.

Well, maybe a little.


Brass is an ass. Pt.2 will be coming up shortly. Praise the momma, @fucken-crybaby for creating the bittybones au. (I love you momma, your blog gives my life, your so amazing ;^;) Thank you to the amazing artist/sinner, who inspired me to create comics of my own, @ammazolie (UGHGHS I LOVE your art style and omfg you slay me.)

The great thing about being into comics is that it’s basically a Create Your Own Canon™.

Don’t like that writer, event, or plotline? Didn’t happen. Love a current character incarnation as much as a previous one? Make them clones. Hate that costume? Throw some glitter on it.

I love this.

ELECTRICOMICS: Open Source and Made of Win

ELECTRICOMICS is 100% FREE, publicly funded, open source code you can use to create your own, original digital comics works. The initial release also features original stories.

Those comics included “Red Horse” by Garth Ennis and Frank Victoria, “Sway”, by Leah Moore, John Reppion and Nicola Scott, “Cabaret Amygdala Presents: ‘Second Sight’” by Peter Hogan and Paul Davidson, and “Big Nemo” by Alan Moore and Colleen Doran.

Interview with links to the code as well as explanation of how to use it HERE!

Alan Moore on BIG NEMO, the project we did together. Naturally, I am going to highlight the wonderful things he said about my work. Because you would, too.

And in any possible future outings, what I would want to do would be to continue the story, and frankly that is aided immensely by having the sublime Colleen Doran on the artwork. We had no idea who would be drawing this when I wrote the script. I think Jose Villarubia suggested her name, and I’d been a fan of her work since A Distant Soil. The job that she’s done on “Big Nemo” is absolutely stunning. That rollercoaster, I believe that did almost drive her mad.

WIRED on ELECTRICOMICS. And more from WIRED “…more than just comics on tablets.”
