Twitter Event 1/4/12 on Breaking In & Making Comics!

icon-designed-by-thedesignsuperhero.comOn Wednesday, January 4, 2012, Comics Experience instructors will be answering questions about making comics and breaking in during a live Twitter Event.

You can ask our comic book writing, art, and coloring instructors your burning questions starting at 8pm Eastern Time!

Please use the hashtag #CMXEXP on all your questions, like so:

@Sotocolor Why are you so awesome? #CMXEXP

This "Tweet Event" leads up to the start of our three courses -- Intro to Comic Book Writing, Intro to Comic Book Coloring, and Advanced Comic Book Art -- all beginning in January and open for enrollment right now!

Starting at 8pm Eastern Time on Wednesday, just begin tweeting your questions to any of our instructors:
@ComicExperience -- Andy Schmidt
@SotoColor -- Chris "Soto" Sotomayor
@RobertAtkinsArt -- Robert Atkins
Don't miss this chance to ask comic book professionals your questions! Here's the full info on each of our instructors and their upcoming classes...

--------------------------

Intro to Comic Book Writing will be taught by former Marvel and IDW Editor and writer, Andy Schmidt.

During his time at Marvel, Andy worked on nearly every major character in the Marvel canon, and edited hit titles such as X-Factor, the Annihilation saga, Alias, and more.

At IDW, he managed major franchises like GI Joe and Transformers. He is also the author of the Eagle Award-winning book, The Insider's Guide to Creating Comics and Graphic Novels, published by Impact Books.

In this six-week course, not only will you learn comic book writing from a pro, but the course will be packed with practical, real-world advice on the industry and "breaking in" to help you pursue your career in comics!

That's why Comics Experience alum, Nick Spencer, tweeted:
"For all aspiring comic pros asking for advice on craft/breaking in, I once again highly recommend Andy Schmidt's @ComicExperience courses."
A few years ago, Nick had to move to New York City to take Comics Experience classes (check out his guest blog here to read that tale). But you don't have to move, now that the courses are online. This one will sell out fast!

Advanced Comic Book Art will be taught by Robert Atkins, a professional comic book artist who has worked on G.I. Joe, Snake Eyes, Amazing Spider-Man, Heroes for Hire, Ultimatum Fantastic Four: Requiem and many others.

If you have already taken the Intro to Comic Book Art class (a prerequisite to enrolling for the Advanced class), then this is your next step toward a career in comics!

In this seven-week intensive course, you'll expand on the skills you've already developed with extended workshopping of your storytelling pages, and discussion of networking within the industry, finding good scripts to work from, how to pencil for inking and for coloring, and rendering textures and objects -- all with a focus on achieving a professional level of finishing and getting published!

You can read what one of Robert's former students had to say about his teaching skills right here. Or check out Robert's art and read his own thoughts on the Advanced Comic Book Art course in this recent Guest Blog right here.

Intro to Comic Book Coloring will be taught by Chris Sotomayor (aka Soto), professional colorist on countless Marvel titles (Spider-Man, X-Men, The Avengers, etc.).

In this six-week intensive class for colorists, you'll learn all the necessary tools and tricks for not only coloring with Photoshop, but also how to tell great stories through color. You’ll get access to all the tools of the trade, tips on how to break in, and you’ll be working with Chris on the pages you color for the class.
Plus, the class will have a session with special guest Rob Schwager, whose coloring credits include the current Ghost Rider, as well as Jonah Hex, Green Lantern, and Superman.

You can read Soto's own thoughts on the class right here...OR read why the class is even better than marriage right here!
