I got this book You Can Draw in 30 Days (kindle edition, hence the iPad in the comic). I’m about 7 lessons in and it’s pretty cool. I got it because right now I’m really trying to do everything to improve my modicum of design skill and I think it’ll help me in my motion design class and just everything in the long run.
So far it’s covered some very basic principles and also each lesson deals with light and shading which is something I basically have no sense of but makes a huge difference. Maybe some of it will carry over into my comic, we’ll see. My laziness and desire to do the comics quickly may win out in the end.
