Breaking the Boundaries between Digital Illustration and Webcomic

Digital Illustration with
Artist, Daong


This class will be covering both the design and the story side of the webcomic production. When I first started digital drawing, I didn't know where to start. I just drew what I could and added a story after. My point is, you don't need an Epic story to draw a comic. Let me help you build from what you have, even if it's one word or two.


You need more than just an idea to attract audiences. Without a strong foundation, a story collapses, and you lose control over the plots and characters. Do you want to create your original webcomic from scratch? This class will help you to get started.


Throughout the class, we will go over every element you need to create a webcomic. From the basics of character drawing, character designing to storytelling, storyboarding and promoting your work. By the end of this class, you will be able to brainstorm your own story and create your original webcomic out of it. Creating a webcomic should be an easy and exciting process, and I will be your guide to figure out the process.
