The Comic Scene | Minneapolis College of Art and Design

The Comic Scene

This course focuses on the two-dimensional depiction of an environment or landscape in comic format. Starting with the creation of a unique pictorial space, students explore the figure within these spaces to create a narrative visual flow. Landscape detailing and lighting are examined to create a sense of mood. Students explore one- to three-point perspectives, alternative perspective theories, and picture-composition relationships and their relationship to narrative drive. Research into the work of professional comics artists’ use of environmental storytelling, as well as individual and group critiques, are used as part of the learning process.
