Making a comic involves a host of skills. Remember that when we make comics, we are combining words and images to be read simultaneously. So broadly speaking we need to do at least two things; to write and to draw.
Words are often the first port of call, because they inform the visuals. As your ideas develop, you’ll have to consider how these words come to life. This can become overfacing, as comics require you to be more than just an author, with aspects of set design, character design and costume design all playing their part in putting your story on the page.
Don’t let this discourage you. Instead, when starting to write a comic, you should not only play to your individual strengths as writer, but consciously indulge your passion for drawing certain things. After all, you comprise the whole cast and crew of this production, and you will be drawing the same things multiple times, so they may as well be things you enjoy drawing! For example, if you love drawing foliage, then set your story in a botanical garden. Perhaps you are most interested in people’s faces? Then create a comic that features a series of talking heads, who collectively tell your story. A comic is still a comic whether it’s one page, or one hundred pages long, so start small and discover where your own strengths lie.
