Description

Class Experience

Each student will be responsible for creatively providing ideas, designs, concepts, sketches and/or writing solutions used to produce professional quality comic books and graphic novels. Through The Comic Studio, students will have the opportunity to create their own portfolio, get hands on experience, and begin their journey into the world of graphic arts.

Art is not about perfection.  It's about the learning and creative process.  The Comic Studio hopes to be a place where young, aspiring artists can get together and learn from each other, to feed off each others' creative synergy, to inspire and support each others' efforts.

Each student will be responsible for creatively providing ideas, designs, concepts, sketches and/or writing solutions used to produce professional quality comic books and graphic novels.

No Sources are needed. However, if you have access to landscape and anatomy books, that would help greatly. Also, the book, "Understanding Comics" is a great resource as well. You can take a look at tutorials on my site at ToshigawaUniverse.com.
