How to make a comic

https://youtu.be/6l0DCrNz_A4

I’m working with Manchester Museum at the moment, making a fold out comic with two stories relating to the museum’s collection.

Students from Cedar Mount Academy spent the day looking at the collection and thinking about how to create two stories for the comic.

We were working with a five point story plan:

1. Inciting incident
2. challenge
3. crisis
4. climax
5. resolution

Not easy top do over 3 A6 panels, but I think I succeeded in compressing the story we camera up with on the day.

Manchester museum is just wonderful. It’s kind of old-fashioned, but totally up to date and wonderfully cared for – all the exhibits are fresh and squeaky and shown in exciting and novel ways. Do visit if you are in manchester or have a look at their website http://www.museum.manchester.ac.uk

Thanks to the students of Cedar Mount Academy for helping us come up with the great story ideas. http://www.cedarmount.manchester.sch.uk

This video shows my working practice as I decide how to write and plan the story and illustrations.

This is part 2 of my How to make a comic series in which I show you all the processes I go through to make a fold out A3 comic for manchester Museum. You can see part 1 here: https://youtu.be/6l0DCrNz_A4

In this video I show how I refine the drawing and get the speech bubbles the right size to fit the text. You can see me paint the cover picture in this video: https://youtu.be/AL3TW4mQVHQ

I go through the process of scanning, tidying up in Photoshop and finally laying out in InDesign ready for print.

How to draw the Angel of Death!

This drawing is for sale on eBay! http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=130787142966

I did a drawing of a skull on drawstuffrealeasy last week and Sarah McIntyre, a brilliant illustrator who you will meet next week in a video, drew a sketch as a response. Her drawing made me think of the angel of death with a helmet and a machine gun even though hers wore spotty pants and roller-skates!. So this is my response to her response! You can see Sarah’s drawing on her blog here: http://jabberworks.livejournal.com/515538.html

This is very different to what I normally do on the ShooRaynerDrawing channel. I’d really like to know if you’d like me to do more big drawings like this one. Please let me know in the comments. Click the link at the top of this post.
