Learn techniques needed to effectively combine words with pictures in the creation of graphic novels, comic strips and storyboards. Students will learn how to render human and animal figures, and the methods of composition that best serve the storytelling. The media used will be manual (pencil, paper, ruler, triangle, pen and ink, and watercolors), but we will cover Photoshop's and Adobe Illustrator's useful tools for typography and coloring. The written element will focus on developing concise dialogue and nimble pacing.
Prerequisite: 27 Completed Credits AND one of the following courses: ART-110, ART-135, or GDD-111 Enrollment could also be granted by permission of the CCM Dean.
