How To Make Artist Books

how to make a comic book.

i want to write a comic book, but i do not know how to go about it.I have a really good plot summary but do I just write the dialogues down or do i draw the pictures. I dont know in comic books if the storywriter makes the pictures too.its not like a black and white strip you see in the papers, i see it as...

If you’re capable of drawing it.. then draw it.Writers tend to just start out with it as a short story and then an artist would be approached, read it and draw it using the story and writer as inspiration.If you buy something like Batman: Year One deluxe it has the sort of things I’m talking about in there.

how to make a book trailer.

I write on internet sites and on one of my sites you can have book trailers. I want to create myself a book trailer but I don’t know the first thing on how to do that. Are there sites I can use for free? I want to be able to use actual clips and such. Any help? Thanks in advance!

Many book trailers use graphics, stills, text, narration and music — all things that you can do with Microsoft Powerpoint. Have an artist illustrate key scenes from your book and then use voice over and music. Be careful about using anything you don’t own the copyright to as it’s not worth the risk and some sites won’t display content that you don’t own all the rights to.

How do Comic Book Artists make their Books.

I have one of those programs that you can upload your picture to the computer and add text, color, wording and all that. But since I don’t have one of those expensive things you hook into your computer where you draw on the thing with a electromagnetic pencil, I just use my computer camera and get a picture of…

You don’t need a graphic tablet to make comics. Comic book artists typically still draw the good old fashioned way on a cardboard called a comic art board. It’s stiffer than regular copy paper, and it’s larger too (11″ X 17″)http://www.bluelinepro.com/Merchant2/merchant.mvc?Screen=PROD&Store_Code=BL&Product_Code=BL1003-24&Category_Code=regThe larger size makes it easier for the penciler to draw, gives him more freedom and range. After he’s done, he hands the board off to the inker, who inks the board by hand. However nowadays, digital coloring AND inking is common. Once the board/page is done, it’s scanned and then inked and/or colored.Here’s a peek at how a webcomic called Copper is made. Look! Even though it’s a webcomic, it’s still drawn by hand first!http://www.boingboing.net/2006/01/30/how-a-comic-is-made.html

How to make a comic book.

Alright, so basically for ages ive wanted to attempt at making a comic book, like a really Professional one or at least one that’s acceptable for a nooby comic artist. I genuinely believe i could make a great comic:A- I have a whole catalog of characters, literally i draw so many characters that are just…

first, download(buy) manga studio or photoshop cs (or sai, or coreal painter, gimp, any drawing program you can get your hands on really)then, learn the basics ( like how do layers work, how to use the typesetting tool -for text-, download some free fonts from the internet; download some “patterns” also, downlaod some additional brushes )now, you might want to look into buying a tablet, i myself have a bamboo one and i’m pleased with it…and you are ALL SET with the proper tools to create a manga…comic book, i mean.————————————–…then, about the story – make a rough outline and divide it into “arcs”. let’s say main chara liam (let’s call him that) wants to save the island Water 8(thats the name of the island btw) from sinking. we can call the latter “Water 8” ARC. all your arcs will weave a thread leading to the Ending. look up some “how to make a story outline” tips.after you are all set with your story outline and characters, divide your story into chapters (usually, the first chapter is an introduction of the main chara, the world that the story is set in, etc)then, make a rough draft of the position of your characters and text bubbles(make sure the movement from panel 1 to panel 2 is fluid and makes sense), OUTLINE, make it pretty and VOILA, your first chapter is ready.

How to make………….

I wrote a novel. Not gonna get it published but for personal use, wanna make it into a proper book. Is there any way I can do this other than take it to a publishing company? Likea. How to make a hardcover bookb. How to make the cover illustration

I’m a writer at heart & I would love to do this too. But as far as I can find the only way to do this is to have it published.I submitted a book once to a number of publishing companies and picture my surprise when it was accepted by one. Unfortunately it was a company that will do what you are asking yet you have to order more than one book. They just bind it for you and mail it back. You are expected to distribute the book yourself. At the time my price quote was over $3000 for so many books. That was the cheapest. That was in 1999 or so.I did find a site online that does what I mentioned above – http://www.48hrbooks.com/This site lists other links – http://nomediakings.org/doityourself/doi…Another site – http://mashable.com/2009/03/01/publish-b…After viewing some links this one looks best at least to me – http://www.lulu.com/publish/hardcover_book/As for a cover illustration it depends on the company you use. I would think they would leave it up to you because all they are doing is taking your work and binding it. They are not designing it for you.What I ended up doing with my own book was have it bound at my husbands work place. We printed it out, I designed my own cover (I have some experience as a graphic artist) & we bound it as a spiral like a notebook. The cover was strong thick stock paper with a clear protective cover on it. I thought it looked good.We’ve also done this personal bible lessons for womens groups.

Anyone know how to become a comic book artist.

Please don’t tell me how impossible it is. If you don’t have anything helpful towards meeting the goal, keep it to yourself. Thanks

Practice. Lots. Study good artists and ask yourself what it is that makes them better than other artists. Focus on storytelling ability rather than style. _How to Draw Comics the Marvel Way_ by Stan Lee and John Buscema is kind of cheesy, but it has helpful information. You should also read Will Eisner’s _Comics and Sequential Art_ and _Graphic Storytelling and Visual Narrative_.Once you think you’re ready, you can either create and publish your own comics or try to get a job with a comic company. I’ve included links to the submission guidelines of American comic publishers Marvel, DC, Dark Horse, and Image. Taking samples to conventions is also a good way of getting your work out there.Good luck!

Book on how to make an artists’ portfolio.

I’ve scoured Amazon, Barnes and Noble and Borders, and can’t find what I’m looking for.Is there a printed book (not online instruction) which will instruct me on how to assemble an artist’s portfolio? As straightforward as possible.

I don’t know of any books but….Your portfolio needs to have different things based on of who you are showing it to. If you are showing it to a college, be sure to include several life studies, if you are showing it to a potential employer, it needs to have several examples of pieces specific to the proposed field.Always remember that your portfolio is only as good as your weakest piece. This is because an employer will think they might catch you on a bad day. If you have a weak piece, either re-work it, or make a new one.
