Creating a Graphic Novel
You want to make a graphic novel (GN). Will I need to buy a $300.00 graphic novel set? Here is how I made my graphic novel Earthling! which appeared at Chronicle Books. You have many ways to make a graphic novel, and you need to find out what works best for you.
Because of the history's natural beauty, there are many places, personalities and actions. Many places means that you have to create and paint many different places. If you have a large number of personalities, you will be spending much more of your life creating and painting different personalities while retaining them "on the model" (looks the same).
One way to simplify a graphic novel is to reduce the number of unrepeatable character and places. I' ve written the whole thing in comic/scripture. Aim was to create a script that was as simple to study as possible without seeing sketches. I' ve added headlines, transitioning and many descriptions of actions to illustrate what happened visual in the storyline and was shown on the page.
After I reworked the book with editorial feed-back until it was deemed definitive. Then, I sketched side roughness (often with small changes to fit the requirements of the definitive layout). I' ve placed these coarse sketches in Adobe Illustrator and all the text (which makes it simple for an editors to check).
It was only after a concluding examination that I began with the finale line arts and paintings (Photoshop). First of all, by scriptwriting the whole storyline, we can focus on the narration and ensure that the big themes vibrate and the character is shaped as completely as possible without being diverted by a sketch.
This makes it easier for writers and others who are not used to GN's and comic books to check the storyline (plot, characters and tempo). However, the writers need to realize that the scripts can be changed when I begin to draw. Scripts must correspond to the definitive image size.
