This book will teach you everything you need to draw and sell your comic strips for both newspapers and comic books, including how to master the art of depicting three-dimensional stories within the confines of a two-dimensional strip and how to reduce your script to just a few action-packed quotes and captions. Using mor than 180 illustrations, Alan McKenzie and other professional comic strip artists share their secrets and demonstrate how to: draw human figure in convincing poses and motion; depict superheroes or heroines and other special character types; render facial expressions that supplement or replace the written caption; distort perspective to suit your story's needs; use light and shadow to add drama and create moods. In the final section you'll discover how to sell your work in this competitive marketplace, including: how many samples to submit at one time; how to pitch by mail as opposed to in person; plus how to maintain a flow of ideas and draw inspiration from unlikely sources once you get a job. 143 pages.
