Step 2: Page Layout
For this tutorial it’s best to use a drawing tablet, as it is with any painting in Photoshop. But for the sake of the average Joe I am just going to use the mouse as an alternative. If you have a drawing tablet available I would encourage you to use it as it is far easier to get better results by using it. First off, we want a page layout of our comic strip. I like to draw out my full pages but you can use a layout template from the web and print it out or even purchase comic book programs that give you hundreds of layout options. If you choose to draw your own you can always clean it up later if you have loose lines, so it’s no big deal. You will want to have an idea of what your story layout will be, obviously. After that, figure up how many blocks you will need and draw them out in the fashion that
you see fit.
