Webcomic artists- a little shop talk – If you are telling an epic story with your webcomic, don’t be afraid of backgrounds and environments. Seriously, make your world stand out. If you cannot draw backgrounds, rooms, places etc… I would suggest you start to figure out how. You limit your ability to tell a story with just upper body and head shots. The more you are willing to improve at your craft, the more you bolster the legitimacy and power that webcomics can have in an industry that is only beginning to understand it’s potential. LEARN YOUR CRAFT….
If you cant draw backgrounds, than grab reference. Practice, don’t be afraid to practice either. Study and apply. It will improve your story telling ability.
