Stan Lee's How To Draw Comics - Stan Lee (2010)

Stan Lee's How To Draw Comics





I didn't pick up Stan Lee's How To Draw Comics for the purpose of learning how to draw, Letter or color. I'm already well versed in that part of Comic Book creation. You can check out my Deviant Art Gallery for some of my color samples if you're inclined to do so. My main objective to giving this book a spin was just to update my knowledge and see if there were / are new things that currently being utilize by amateurs and professionals alike. After reading it, there isn't a whole lot that I would say is "new". This book is definitely aimed at the novice artist looking to break into the biz and touches on everything that will be asked of you when creating your own fantasy worlds or working with preexisting characters for Marvel, DC, Image and any other publisher.

Everything from Penciling, Inking, Coloring and Lettering is addressed here. There is even a section devoted to how best to go about submitting and showing your portfolio to land that prize job that you are after. So, can any seasoned or professionals benefit from this book? Yes. It's a nice handy thing to have just for a refresher course should you get in a rut. Lot's of different examples to be found within the book from layout and cover designs, color samples as well as inking and penciling styles.

I can recommend this book as a Rent from the Library. I give this 4 Stars out of 5.

Is this a video? Or a book?

Book. You might be thinking of Draw Comics The Marvel Way which also had a DVD release.

That DVD **** me up because it just felt like the artist didn't want to be there at all!  He just kept bruskly answering and trying to get everything done as soon as possible, like he had other work to do and wasn't being paid to be there.

Stan Lee:  "Now we're gonna show you how to draw a MIGHTY MARVEL hero with epic proportions, the kind of fantastical figures who populate our books!  Now it sounds like it'll be difficult but it's so easy to get started!"
John Romita:  (in one breath)  "Okay, what you do is you draw a stick figure then you put tubes around the stick figure then you add details to the tubes then you erase the stick figure."
