Painting and drawing are common types of distraction and entertainment that can help us spend time much more productively. By drawing, we can let our creativity flows and it is possible to forget about stressors in workplace. Comic fans could have interest in drawing, especially if they have completed reading dozens or even hundreds of titles.
Comics could induce an almost insatiable addiction and we could draw as a way to create comics that match with our own preferences. It is interesting to learn how illustrators could create well-drawn and well-scripted series. Comics have driven the imaginations of children and adults alike for many years. We have spent years running around pretending as Superman, Batman or one of those manga characters.
Whether you pick up comics produced by Walt Disney, DC Comics, Marvel or any of those Japanese illustrators, we may have picked a pencil and try to draw characters as shown on those books.
In fact, there are many talented amateur artists who could emulate works by professional illustrators and create their own fan fiction works. When drawing comics, the sky is the limit to our imagination. We can create characters with laser gadgets and those colourful spandex costumes.
Drawing is another step comic fans take to immerse themselves deeper into their hobbies. What they draw becomes a part of the experience. It would be so much fun creating our own storyline and adding witty dialogue between characters. One easy way is to create fan fiction comics. It won’t be necessary to create a new universe and we could simply borrow characters already created by professional illustrators.
We could imagine various “what if” scenarios that are never explored in mainstream comics. Being able to draw these characters with good accuracy could bring a sense of achievement.
Imitating characters and drawing styles should be relatively easy because fans could already be familiar with specific comics series or illustrators. All we need to is to purchase multiple good quality pencils with different grades of hardness and blackness. Beginners could start with black and white sketches, because adding colors to panels can be daunting to those who lack the experience.
For outlining the drawing, we could also get medium-tipped and black fine marker pens. This helps our characters to stand out better. It is also important to have the proper drawing pad for all those sketches that we are working on.
It should be noted that mastering the drawing skill can’t be achieved overnight. Patience is essential and practice always makes perfect. These two factors are essential when we are learning something, including comics drawing. It is a good idea to get family members and friends to join us in this newfound hobby. They can help us to maintain determination and achieve success.
While we are learning to draw, it would be helpful to have a really supportive group around us. They can help us to drive away any kind of negativity. In the end, we can find that comics drawing are a great way to entertain ourselves.
