For some writers, creating fictional characters is the toughest part of making stories. With so many variables to fill in, anyone can get confused pretty quickly. This exercise distills many of those variables down to just a few powerful ones.
You'll have your character fleshed out within minutes!
This is 12+ pages of some really great insight into what makes a comic book. The structure, the look, and the conventions of using sequential pictures to tell a story.
This is a must have to get the most out of this Kit.
This exercise is designed to get to the heart of what kind of story you'd like to write. It's as simple as circling the types that interest you then connecting them together with lines. It creates a visual web of your story!
Sometimes you want to know exactly what you're going to draw on each page of your comic. This sheet puts all 24 pages on a single page. Now you dont have to flip through a booklet to get the details you need! Faster and faster!
We love it.
A page full of the tips and tricks we've gathered over the last 5 years of making comics really fast.
You don't have to do all of them but even if you just do 10 you'll be in a much better position of success!
