How to Create Comics in Four Easy Lessons

For the Vancouver Art Gallery’s Family Fuse, Mara Coman and Chris Eberle developed a series of booklets that guide the fledgling cartoonist the four steps of comic creation using numerous examples from the works of various Cloudscape creators. The booklets proved incredibly popular and so we have placed them here on our website for all to use.

Step 1: Creating the Story

What it means to write a great comic story.

Step 2: Designing the Characters

The ins and outs of creating unique and interesting protagonists and antagonists.

Step 3: Layout

The meat of the comic: drawing the panels.

Step 4: Inking
