INTRODUCTION TO COMIC DRAWING
Six months course for teenagers
12 JAN — 08 JUN 2018
Would you like to learn drawing comics? At this workshop we will teach you how to create a comic from the beginning to the end.
The course is focused to students from 14 to 18 years old interested into learn about the basic methods of the drawing, the language and the expressivity at the comic world. Students will learn to create characters, to structure pages with the vignettes, texts and balloons, and to create your own cartoon strip. At the end of the course all the cartoon strips will be grouped in a small publication that will be distributed among all the students of the course.
We will do a brief review along this course about the comic history. We will focus in some of the most relevant authors and titles (Astérix, Mortadelo, Tintín, Marvel and DC, manga…) so the students will learn about the drawing basic methods and they will be able to give expressivity to the characters, to develop their own style, to adequately compose the vignettes and to realize a correct history narration.
Students will advance along the course with the creation of characters, facial and body expressions, construction of the pages, vignettes distribution, perspectives, balloons, color application and all the necessary elements to realize a complete cartoon strip.
