How to Draw Comics
Hello and welcome! This site will teach you how to draw comics and anime - all your favorite characters from Spiderman to Wolverine - in two ways.
You'll find easy step-by-step tutorials where comic pro Loston Wallace shares his experience.
One of the best ways to learn is by learning what not to do, or from the mistakes others have made. There are many overlays on the site, where Loston explains in detail how to fix common errors.
If you're new to all this, don't be intimidated or discouraged if your drawings don't turn out the way you like at first. All you need to do is keep plugging away and having fun. Drawing well comes from both knowledge and practice, but every step forward is exciting.
If you want to learn how to draw comics or anything else well, you need a couple of things before you pick up your pencil.
First, you need to believe you can do it. Too many beginners blame themselves for lacking talent when all they need is more practice. Van Gogh struggled as a beginning painter, but he didn't quit! Like learning any other skill, sticking with it is necessary to succeed in drawing comics.
You also need to learn to see. We all walk around with symbols in our heads for what we think something looks like.
Your brain tells you "It's a nose..make an L-shape, and you're done! Let's move on already!"
Drawing isn't a race, it's more like meditation. Relax and take it slow. Look, then look some more. Does the nose really look like an L? Does it have a shadow? Improve your observation and you'll be drawing comics that look great in no time!
