How to Create Comic Books using DAZ Studio (Part 2)

Have you ever considered using your Daz 3D assets to create a comic book?

Have you wanted to turn your rendered pictures into a story?

How do you do this and where do you begin?

In part 2 we’re focusing on special effects, lighting, lettering and comic book covers. Presented by Drew Spence, the creator of the Force Six Annihilators comic series. The Griffin Avid takes his knowledge, gained from his formal education and the experience of creating one of the most popular CGI comics, and distills it into these tutorials

This foundation comic creation course is perfect if you are wondering of HOW to be most effective when dealing with lettering (speech bubbles), lighting your scenes within DAZ Studio, adding special effects and postwork to enhance your story panels and creating effective comic book covers.

Tutorial 1

The comic foundational course continues with Post Work and Special Effects. We’ll explore the four types of post-render tasks and a multitude of systems and techniques to enhance your artwork. Everything from the subtle to the sublime will be covered in great detail. As always, we’ll cover your best options from the Daz Store and explore what’s available, across all the platforms, and many free options. Drew Spence will add a conceptual approach so that the lessons from today will remain relevant for years to come.

The course includes:

  • Fixes for repair and the many ways to save a “bad” render.
  • Enhance and Elevate
  • Envision your Environment
  • Find fine details in the Frame.
  • Special Effects
  • Lighting Effects and Helpers

Tutorial 2

Drew Spence and Digital Art Live present the fourth and final segment of the Comic Book Foundation course. A picture says a thousand words as we look at the usage of text in our work and break down the first impression, which is our cover art.

This course will cover:

  • Dialogue and Text
  • Word balloons and encasing text.
  • Titles
  • Logos
  • Covering your Cover
  • Publishing and pushing

The Comic Book Foundation course is commissioned by Digital Art Live and created by Drew Spence from the Dynamic Universe.

Interesting that comiXology simply chose the first three pages and gave no hints as to what was going to happen next. They probably figured the dragon was a big reveal and needed to wait until you dug in. Most of our readers know what to expect so, here are a few more pages.

Page Pull Force Six dinner invite

You know, what happens is, comiXology picks a few pages to preview for every title. I find it incredibly…interesting that they picked pages from the dinner scene instead of any of the fight scenes. I guess their editor(s) liked this moment. Thanks comiXology!
