I Draw Comics Kickstarter by RyanStegman

If you are interested in drawing comics but need to know how, we've created a book for you.

I know there are plenty of books out there that help you learn to draw comics, but with this one we've created a book that you can actually draw in and put to practice the lessons you've learned. We give you blue line templates to work over.

I contend that if you complete all the exercises in this "workbook", you will be a better artist, and hopefully be able to start working on your own comics.

Check out the kickstarter, where you can buy the book here:…

You can also find out more at

And finally, an interview with Matt Marrocco and I, the creators of the book:…

Thanks guys!

Ryan, I'm that website... WHERE do I actually "click" to buy the book? THere's all so many options that I don't know what they mean.

Wow. I thought about this idea as well during the start of 2012. Looks like you beaten me to it. (It would of took me 4-5 years to get it done anyway.)

Congrats on the Kickstarter. Too bad I missed it. I'm gonna pre-order it in your website anyway.

Ever since I picked back up on reading The Amazing Spider-Man I was hooked again. I never realized as a kid just how marvelous the story really was and yes, I made a Marvel pun just now. I do think this would be a really wonderful tool and I'll definitely be picking up a copy, but I also believe that just instructing on how to draw comic books is not enough for some artists. I think that any artist wanting to draw comic books should practice life drawing daily in order to get a grasp on good anatomy. Are you one of the artists for the newer issues of Spider-Man, by the way? I'm only on issue 251 of the Amazing Spider-Man currently, so I'm familiar with John Romita, both jr. and senior and I admire every bit of the old and new style of Spider-Man. The twisting forms, the graceful curvature, the energetic figures and the musculature must have taken years of practice to accomplish. Give Stan my best for creating such a wonderful series and I hope to see 600 more issues of Spider-Man!

Damn you, Stegman, and your ability to take my money! When I get paid I'll throw my funds into the Kickstarter pot.

I look forward to learning from you. Of course, I draw about as well as I diet...

An innovative idea, and one that deserves to do well.

I pledged to this, am quite excited :)

Any chance you'd be willing to divulge how you do your publishing to those of us wishing to embark upon bookmaking of our own?

RyanStegman Featured By Owner Aug 21, 2012  Professional Artist
I'm not in charge of the publishing, my partner on the project Matt is! Otherwise I'd gladly share.
Cymae Featured By Owner Aug 22, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
would he be willing to share then I guess?

Congratulations on the funding by the way!
