For those keeping score, I happen to be vending/attention Shuto Con in the near future!
And in good news, I recently learned that I will once again be presenting some panels at the convention itself! Namely I'm bringing back most of my art panels (the only one not coming back is Art Jam, but that's due to me not really being able to fit in the time for it this year.)
So, for those new(er) to the blog, here's the panels I'll be presenting! I don't have times yet, that usually occurs about a month ahead of the show.
Time in a Box: Tips for Comic Panel Layout
A picture’s worth a thousand words, but a terrible layout only spells disaster! Join Crash Bang Labs for a discussion panel about Comic Panel layouts and composition. Whether you’re drawing a single comic strip or a full chapter book, the tips and tricks in this panel will help you tell your story your way!
Her Legs are HOW Long?
An Interactive Panel on Drawing Properly Proportioned People
Having trouble drawing people, or maybe you’ve always wanted to learn? Join Crash Bang Labs for an interactive panel on drawing human body proportions! The first half of the panel we’ll discuss proportions, and show examples from comics and animation, and the second half we’ll do some follow-along exercises where we draw a basic male and female! Sketchbooks are encouraged, but basic paper and pencils will be available for those who don’t carry art supplies with them.
These are the panels I presented last year, but they're a little longer time-wise than before. Frankly I had to talk like the micromachines guy to get through some of these panels, so I'm giving more breathing room to chat, as well as being able to open up the floor for questions at the end!
I'm also working on tweaking the content of the presentations themselves, updating some of the pictures, adding new ones or possibly new topics. I'll be reviewing them over the next couple of months, that's for sure! So if there's anything you're interested in me talking about, please! Let me know, I'll see if I can fit it in!
Hope to see you there! :)
