This “How It’s Done” book reveals insider hints, tips, and tricks from one of the world’s greatest comic creators, all in his own words.
The artist behind juggernauts like Watchmen and The Green Lantern, Dave Gibbons, is here to teach you scriptwriting, page layouts, lettering, cover designs, and more, with scans of original artwork and rarely seen workings to illustrate his personal creative processes.
Making Comics covers both Gibbons’ hand-drawn and digital design techniques in depth. An early adopter of computer design in comic creation, all his lettering is digital, and he even has his own “hand-lettered” font.
This is your chance to gain insight to Gibbons’ digital work, from his computer colouring and 3-D modelling with Angus McKie on Give Me Liberty, to his work on The Originals using digital grey tones. You’ll learn how he layers text for editing, creates effects such as flares and neon glows, and prepares artwork for print and online.
Making Comics is everything you need to know to get started creating great comic books.
