Illustration comic books are another good way of giving out information to your targeted audience and also self expression personally.I was at home and just decided to illustrate a story of a working guy who notices a young school girl on Facebook. later, they happen to meet on the street on her way back home from school. The man drags her into bed making her pregnant. The working guy ends up loosing his job and goes to jail for defilement charges.
Besides the story, this is a simple illustration that can help you enhance your drawing skills and mastering design software.IT’S EASY!!! Remember, “Simplicity is the best Style”
Wanna try?!! Have fun!!!
Step 1: Think of a good story
Step 2: Illustrate the general idea on paper, you can add detailed shadings later if you want. They help get an idea of how you might select on which colors to use later.
Step 3: Use an ink pen to make outlines of the important parts of the drawings. At this stage, you don’t need to shade or add texture.
Step 4: Scan the outlined drawings that you have done to your computer.
Step 5: Open any preferred design software like adobe Photoshop or adobe illustrator, and add color to the scanned drawing to give them life. example: when working in adobe illustrator, use the pen tool and close the paths for you to add color. Avoid using outlines/strokes because they can be distorted. Add color and work with gradients.
Step 6: Save your artwork in different formats for presentation and printing.
