What You’ll Be Creating Drawing, at its most basic level, is intuitive to us. Even young children know how to transfer the image in their head into a set of pencil strokes, even though they may not resemble anything to others. When we grow up, we learn more about the world around us, and we learn how to depict it more accurately with lines. Lines seem to be almost interchangeable with drawing, but if you look carefully, you won’t find them anywhere in the real world. It’s us who pack the real objects into tight-fitting wrapping, because wrapping is all we can draw. Wrapping, the lines, is an approximation of reality, and, as it is with approximations, there may be many of them describing the same thing. Until you understand it, you’re forced to draw flatly, …

What You’ll Be Creating In this tutorial I will introduce you to chalk pastels, what they are, and how to use them, setting you on the path to bright and colourful work that never fades and can be done at home or out and about. Why Pastels? I have to admit that pastels are my absolute favourite medium to work in. The vibrancy of the huge selection of colours is wonderful, while the detail you can achieve often surprises. You only need a piece of paper and a pastel and you are off, no other materials. You can quickly achieve a finished piece either at home or outside, and you don’t have to wait for anything to dry. For me, painting with pastels is about taking advantage of a series of subtleties, and I consider many aspects of the work in front of me: the different shades of pastel sticks and pencils I am working with the colour of paper or card I have chosen (should I let it shine through my painting or not?) the colours I have already laid down, and what effect I can …

Creating a Storyboard When you have a character and an idea of what you want to tell, it might be tempting to just dive in and start drawing. If you take extra care planning the story and the structure of the comic, you will avoid drawing yourself into a dead end. Step 1 It is hard to make a comic without having something to tell, so the first step is to come up with some sort of series of events.
