Comics are big business, and if you want to make your mark in the industry then you need to have the core skills in your toolset. In the latest issue of ImagineFX the team asked pro artists to give their tips to help you take your sequential art skills to the next level, covering line-art, flatting and colouring, and panel design.
And what a roster of pro artists they have lined up for you to learn from. There’s Wonder Woman artist Bilquis Evely (opens in new tab), whose realistic take on the character appears on the magazine's cover. World of Tanks comic artist PJ Holden (opens in new tab) explains his panelling techniques for his own IP, and Liam Sharp’s (opens in new tab) detailed line art for a Wonder Woman panel gets coloured by Laura Martin (opens in new tab) – it’s a fascinating process.
Elsewhere, the team caught up with Jock (opens in new tab), a giant of the comic world who’s also taken big strides into the film industry. You can also check out the sketchbooks of Marvel and DC artists Mark Brooks (opens in new tab) and Joverine (opens in new tab), and chart how heroes with unusual backgrounds and usual walks of life are making their long-overdue mark on today’s comic pages.
