Creating a comic is more than just coming up with a powerful villain or gruesome alien: it requires a lot of thought and planning about the story line, weapons and props, modes of transportation, and setting (city, outer space, underwater, etc). Pulling all of this together may sound challenging, but with 3D Comic Design everything from how to create the story, characters, and text balloons, to page layout /design, adding special effects, and integrating 3D environments is clearly explained.

  • Teaches you how to create your own comics using Super heroes, Villains, Aliens, and more
  • Thoroughly explains how to craft a story from plot ideas to naming your characters
  • Details the design and creation of storyboards, page layouts, text balloon designs, font options, and more
  • Provides a complete library of ready-to-use graphic elements and characters to use in creating a basic 3D comic without purchasing a lot of software
  • Includes hands-on tutorials on how to use 2D image software (e.g. Photoshop) and plug-ins to create graphic effects with an emphasis on Layers, a critical comic design tool
  • Explains how to organize and setup your own studio with minimal equipment and software needs and costs
  • The CD includes the files for the complete comic, all the characters, props, balloons, environments, etc., can be used for your own creations.
