You want to draw comics like a pro? Now you can draw them better than a pro! Most comic artists today have drawn superhero after superhero, says author Al Bigley; they’ve almost forgotten how to draw without tons of overreaching, shading, and foreshortening. Draw Comics Like a Pro takes artists back to the basic principles of good drawing, teaching with clear, detailed step-by-steps how to draw figures in powerful poses; how to use close-ups, composition, and backgrounds for optimal storytelling effect; textures; how to use shadows and frames, typography and shadow effects; how to fix problem drawings; and much more. Crammed with insider tips and secrets, this book is a smash-pow-blammo reference for comic-book creators at all levels.
