Summer Workshop with James Beihl: Fundamentals of Graphic Novel Creation - Pro Tips

The workshop is a 3 day comprehensive look at the multidisciplinary approach that is

integral to making sequential art, and entertainment design. 

 

   

 

 

     Day 1: Students will draw from a live, clothed model and receive a breif,

informative study of anatomy and perspective.  

 

 

 

Day 2: The instructor will do a demonstration of a character sheet, going through the process of using references and personal

preference to create a consistent look for a character. This day will be of lecture format but students are encouraged to work on their

own characters using the aides the instructor has provided. 

 

 

 

Day 3: The instructor will show the character they created in a comic book panel and then go over how to break a script, by using a short poem.

Students will be encouraged to follow along and attempt to break the script in whatever way they see fit up to 9 panels.

The instructor will then critique their thumbnails and give each student individualized feedback. 

 

  

 

 

Throughout the workshop the instructor will provide a list of resources students can take advantage of if they are interested

in pursuing sequential art and will also answer any industry specific questions.
