Comics are sometimes hard to think of. I should say that because I love to make comics and it is sometimes hard to think of ideas.


What is a Comic?

First off, what exactly is a comic? Well a comic is a short cartoon that you can make from drawing panels on a piece of paper. Google says that a comic is, “A Comic is a medium used to express ideas by images, often combined with text or other visual information. Comics frequently take the form of juxtaposed sequences of panels of images.” This means that drawings are put together in a quick story-line.

Types Of Comics

Let’s get this straight; not all types of comics are about superheroes! People have different ideas. Sometimes comics are fan-made from a video game or movie. I made Image result for fnafone when I was eight about a horror game called Five Nights At Freddy’s. Now I look back at it and CRINGE!!

Image result for anime

I used to be into a style called, Anime, a Japanese style. Anime is a very detailed style. Drawing anime is really hard to do, so it’s hard to fit into a little comic panel.  Shows like, Pokemon, Dragon Ball Z, and more TV shows with that kind of style. 


How To Think Of A Comic

Try to think of the gender first. Do you want your character to be a girl or boy? Next, think of some traits. Is he or she silly, creative, mean? Then think of minor details like hair color and skin tone.


Good luck comicing!
