New Class: Drawing Comics!
An Online Skillshare Class by Christine Fleming
My new Skillshare class is now live! This class is called Drawing Comics: Storytelling with Words and Pictures, and I’m super excited about it! You can watch the trailer video above, and here’s the class description via Skillshare:
Learn how illustrator Christine Fleming uses words and pictures together to tell a sequential story. Whether you’re interested in comics, graphic novels, or newspaper comic strips, they all begin as a sequential story and hinge on the balance of words and images.
This 45-minute class will introduce the basics of sequential storytelling including plot structure, panel transitions, timing, and framing. Along the way Christine will point out her favorite tips and techniques, that are vital to understanding how to draw a sequential story.
The project assignment for this class is to draw a one-page comic inspired by a childhood memory. In the videos, Christine will take you through her entire process as she makes her own 1-page comic.
She’ll cover all the steps from writing, planning, thumbnailing, sketching, drawing, and inking.
By the end of the class, you’ll have your own one page comic and the basic skills you need to jump into making your own comics and graphic novels! No prior knowledge of writing, drawing, comics, or software is required.
You can check out the class here on Skillshare, and I hope you decide to come make comics with me!
