How to Write & Draw Comics
What others are saying about Comics For Beginners:
What a great website! I just started trying to draw my own comic and your combination of sound technique and a little bit of "artist's psychology" is really awesome/helpful. I have been drawing for years but always found other artists very intimidating. But I discover the comics world is full of people like you who just want to see more creation and more enthusiasm! Wow! I love it, and I love comics people.

If I was just starting out doing comics as a profession, these videos would be invaluable info that tells me just what I NEED to know, rather than what I think I want to know

This really shows the process of how comics start, something I've never really seen in books.

Really helped me understand the process of creation. Helped me tie the idea together that storytelling is king no matter if your'e doing comics, tv, or writing a book. Gave me enough intellectual scaffolding to be able to get started on an idea and courage to follow through. Looking forward to more content and tips!!!

The videos are extremely thorough and deals with a lot of "internal struggle" so to speak, that the artist/writer will have. "What if I get stuck?", "What if it isn't good enough". And it is very pragmatic to me as a writer - I get a much better understanding of the concept of drawing i.e. perspective, speech balloons and so on.
Every artist and instructional book uses a different method that could confuse the beginner. The videos have given sound advice to wade through the confusion and actually begin working.

There is one over riding theme that I see repeated in your advice - get it done. i have used this many times to make a critical decision between best practice and what I can "get away with" in order to keep going. I have used this principle to "shrug off" my mistakes and keep working. I can always do it better the next time - as long as I do it at all the first time.

The videos help me to be more disciplined and to break down large projects into smaller stages.

I'm a newbie, so having videos directly addressing how to start off, and explaining some tips on paneling and scriptwriting is really, really helpful.
