Starting a Graphic novelLaunching a graphic novel
8-step guideline for the creation and publication of your own comics
The creation of a (credible) alternative world through the arts of telling stories has always intrigued me. I just recently made up my mind to make my own comicbook. It all starts with an original concept, and your cartoon or graphic design is no different. This way, if an ideas appears in your mind, you can record it.
Don't be worried if your ideas have not yet been fully implemented. I never thought a talk would trigger a new work. It is one of the most frequent errors to begin to draw your cartoon before you work out your storyline. So while you might want to grab a piece of empty space - or launch your favourite painting application - and just dive in, you're probably preparing for fail.
You take your sweetheart' minutes to scribble. There are four key points to consider when it comes to writing your script: When your scripts are ready, it's a good idea to begin the plot. Well.... it's almost painting in there. Thumbnails similar to storylines help you solve composing issues before you spend your own precious resources on colouring and colouring your artwork.
Be it traditional or digital, cartoon design can be a huge work. Concentrate on painting your cartoon; you can perfect it later in the colouring phase. It'?s more than that.... the instruments just feels the same. Well, now that you have your cartoon painted, it's colouring and colouring in; two jobs that don't necessarily have to be done by the same people.
One of the often ignored tasks when making a cartoon is the caption. If your writing is confused, they won't be reading your tale! Admittedly, I can write a few'sound effect' words by handwriting here and there, but generally all my typefaces are written with scripts on. Not just any font!
But I like to use writings that match the funny comics. Blambot has the largest library of comics. You have both free typefaces and prepaid type. You' re making a cartoon. It' not always simple to sell and market your comics. The creation of a cartoon or a graphic novel requires a great deal of work.
When you have the abilities and you have the spare minute to do this job on your own, great! You will find many places on the Internet to help you get into it. Comics For Beginners is one of my absolute favourites.
