Overview

• Based on actual martial-arts techniques

• Great for comic-book and storyboard artists at any level

The all-important fight scene is key to most comic books and graphic novels, whether the fight involves a superhero smashing his archenemy or some poor sap getting mugged on the street. But many artists are…well, let’s just say they're more lovers than fighters. Fortunately, Jeff Johnson, a martial-arts expert and renowned artist, is ready to show even the puniest weaklings how to draw real fights. Step-by-step instructions start with an explanation of different body types. Then the author applies these basics to actual martial arts and other fighting techniques, including karate, kung fu, aikido, fencing, street fighting, and more, while explaining how to choreograph. Extra information on composition, environment, pacing, and special effects makes this the book all artists will want on their side.
