HOW TO PRACTICE COMICS
If you’re like us, you want to know how to make great comics. So what I’m going to try to do here is present a series of efforts to copy great comics, both to sharpen my skills in the arts of the past such as inking and pencilling, and as well to practice the arts of the future in coloring and computer post-production.
I’ll be copying comics that live in the public domain. I’m not ripping anyone off or presenting the copies in this site section as my own work. They’re demonstrative of the learning process. Please drop us a line if you have any questions.
As you read on, you’ll see how we do stuff like this, this and this! Laugh and learn with us as we claw our way to the top of the comics world!
