Why not have a short comic explaining how to write your own short comic?
Meta! I know, right!?
Before I start, let's get the big questions out of the way.
You don't need to have amazing drawing skills to make a comic.
Look at me...
The crucial part of the comic is the story.
If you have a story...
Few people relate to this guy.
More people can relate now.
A lot more people relate to this.
Whatever your heart wants.
Or a trip to take from point A to point B.
Or a hero in the making.
I don't know if there is a universal process, but I'll explain how I do it..
I start with a text editor.
I open some software to draw. You can use whatever tool you prefer.
Then it's time to choose colors.
Then I draw characters. They are super simple.
The goal is to complete a first pass at the story as fast as possible.
As I focus on each artboard, I think: What I can do here to emphasize the story? Can I animate this? But I try do not overdo it.
I export each artboard in SVG.
SVG look always crisp and are very small in size. They don't take forever to load on a page with 30+ drawings on it.
And that's pretty much it. All you need is a story with simple shapes.
Then we made a story about the first one: Trusty.
Now go make your very own short comic!
