A com­pre­hen­sive guide to cre­at­ing and devel­op­ing com­ic book and graph­ic nov­el art, from the Savan­nah Col­lege of Art and Design (SCAD), one of the world’s lead­ers in sequen­tial arts instruc­tion.

Artists seek­ing a way to break into the excit­ing world of sequen­tial art first need to mas­ter the tools, tech­niques, and habits used by their favorite pen­cillers, inkers, and dig­i­tal artists for cre­at­ing dynam­ic, excit­ing com­ic art­work. In Foun­da­tions for Com­ic Book Art, the Savan­nah Col­lege of Art and Design (SCAD)—a lead­ing force in art and design education—enlists one of its top instruc­tors, John Paul Lowe, to pro­vide aspir­ing com­ic book mak­ers with a thor­ough primer for cre­ative comics, fea­tur­ing must-know con­cepts like con­tour draw­ing, mas­ter­ing per­spec­tive, using pho­to-ref­er­ence, and adding dig­i­tal pat­terns. Exam­ples from the works of SCAD fac­ul­ty, alum­ni, and stu­dents are paired with Lowe’s easy-to-fol­low, step-by-step lessons and exer­cis­es for read­ers, demon­strat­ing the vital process­es all would-be sequen­tial artists have to know before join­ing the ranks of the com­ic book–making elite.
