Stories are a cornerstone of human civilization, not to mention, they’re a lot of fun. But what makes stories matter? What makes a character memorable and fictional worlds fantastic? This online class will dissect what makes a good story great, and how design makes that happen in visual narrative media. For cartoonists, comic book artists, game designers and cinema geeks, this is a crash introduction, or excellent refresher, for how to make our stories look AND feel compelling. We will be investigating shape design, costume design, and worldbuilding to see how these elements come together to create the universes we love so dearly, and learning how to build our own worlds along the way.
