Synopsis

This one-of-a-kind book instructs artists of all skill levels, and not just those interested in drawing comics. Professional artists demonstrate their techniques for designing and drawing effective comic book characters, both by using photographs of models and by drawing figures from life. Figure Drawing for Comics and Graphic Novels shows you how to compose models to pose for photographs, to build up a reference collection. It covers every element, from conceptualising a composition involving characters and backgrounds, equipment, locations for settings, and lighting the model. Included in this book is a selection of photographs of models, props, and backgrounds for artists to use in their drawing. Also included are tips on how to draw props, plus detailed examples and principles on how to draw and render clothing, facial expressions and action poses. Using this book, you will discover everything you need to know in order to make the best composition and tell an engaging story.
