Inking Comics

Here's an outstanding page from last semester's Inking Comics course by outstanding student, Peter Shevenell.

As in my Figure Drawing for Cartoonists course, the projects and exercises alternate between work drawn from imagination and drawings made from observation. Studying the way things really look in various light situations provides necessary training and a fund of strategies for designing pictures from the mind's eye.

And the course offers other challenges, too, such as studying from master cartoonists and solving worksheets.

My courses begin next week and are enrolling now. Cartooning is a welcoming way to get your ideas down on paper. Its primary subject is the figure. Its primary medium is ink.
