One of the unique features of Comics Experience is the opportunity comics creators have to work with the same instructor throughout the development of their craft. CE offers Advanced Studio courses in writing, art, and coloring to build on the fundamentals students learn in our Introduction classes, so comics creators can find the right course what they want to do in comics.

In order to give those who are considering taking a course examples of what they will learn, we’re showing off some our students’ work. These students began in Introduction classes and went on to Advanced classes. Because they want to share what they learned, they’ve have been kind enough to let us use their work, as well as answer some questions about their experience at Comics Experience.

The first student whose work we’re presenting is Claude Policart, who was a student in Chris Soto’s Introduction to Comic Book Coloring and Advanced Comic Book Coloring.

 

Which coloring skills did you find the greatest help with in Chris Soto’s Intro to Coloring and Advanced Coloring courses?

CP: I learned how to work the values of dark and light. I also learned how to use cool and warm colors to create depth. I never really thought about using color that way before Chris’s class.

What’s a great quick tip you learned that you can share?

CP: Flatting the right way is really important. It will save you hours of work if you make a mistake.

Whom would you recommend the courses to?

CP: I would recommend this course to any beginner and anyone who wasn’t been able to get work. This course will force you to improve your portfolio.
