Moodboard and Sketches

When starting a comic book for the first time, establishing your characters is very important. For Y.O.L.O ethnic backgrounds, gender, and mental health issues all needed to feel intentional and relatable. I began by making a mood board for each character and sketching them. These sketches went from bust drawings to full body, to finished turn-around sheets. Having the characters in a turnaround is essential to see how the character will look in 3D space despite being a 2D image. Similar to animation, this character turnaround is an important reference sheet that will help the character look the same throughout the whole book.
