Overcoming Obstacles & Staying Motivated

Once again Korey and I catch up in the studio to talk about the creation of 'The Embrace'.

When Michael Oden sent through the concept and backstory for this wicked character, I jumped at the opportunity to do up a cover for the book. Inspired by the likes of Spawn, Haunt and The Crow, this commission was right up my ally.

Throughout today's whopping 1 Hour + demonstration we'll be discussing a number of topics related to comic book illustration, motivation and the mindset of a pro artist:

  • Line Quality - Dynamic Line Art - Applying Line Weights

  • Calibrating Brush and Canvas Size

  • Line Size and Detail Density for Print

  • Staying Motivated

  • Overcoming Obstacles

  • Working With Clients

  • Pricing Art Commissions

  • Advantages to doing Fan Art

  • Rendering

  • Developing Your Artistic Eye

  • Developing an artistic Philosophy

  • How to Learn, and Where to Learn

We hope you get a ton of value out of this comic art demonstration. Before you go, be sure to check out the IndieGoGo campaign for the Barton Bros debut comic KOZOR: Descent Into Madness: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/kozor-descent-into-madness/x/20658139#/
