Hi, my name is Sol Daz
and I draw and make illustrations.
I've been drawing and creating stories my whole life,
which has led me to publish more than 15 books,
Cmo ser una mujer elegante, and Nacer bajo tierra.
My creative method is based on analog processes
that interact with the digital world.
I like drawing to enter my inner world,
and to enjoy a personal and intimate moment.
Its like a journey to a place I love.
I invent hundreds of characters on these journeys.
I love feeling like they're alive
and accompanying me as if they were imaginary friends.
These drawings and characters can
serve as a type of anchor when youre experiencing stormy times
or as wise advisors
that help you pinpoint personal issues
with which you can build great stories.
In this Domestika course,
you'll learn to create your own webcomic series.
As a project, youll travel to your inner world
to unravel stories that will become characters
for a webcomic you can develop and share for a long time to come.
You'll learn about webcomics, their formats and narrative styles,
and then do exercises with conceptual maps
that will help you define the central idea.
Well research the topic and connect the concepts.
Well start sketching images and characters
and then try out colors and materials
that will allow you to graphically visualize your story.
I'll show you the materials and well get started preparing the scripts,
which well develop from a base idea
of four acts or panels.
Once thats ready, well start drawing and inking,
where youll learn about composition within a panel.
To finish, Ill teach you how to digitalize your comics
to have them ready to share
in a virtual space designed specifically for them.
If you follow these steps,
youll transform your experiences and ideas into a live webcomic.
To take this course, its important
to be in the habit of writing or drawing
and you'll need to know a little about Photoshop.
This course is for anyone who enjoys digging into personal issues
and wants to explore their authorial voice
through webcomic creation.
Discover and dive into your inner world
to create personal and universal stories.
