The creative process of Matt Daio in “The Art Of Comic Books”

Earlier this year, LRMonline brought you an exclusive feature from Tim Nardelli focusing on the process of creating a comic. Functionality comic book art discusses the creative process required to create an original character. While a casual comic book reader might not consider this a big challenge, there’s a lot of work to just conceptualize the character.

One of the most difficult concepts in creating a comic is bringing a character to life. When creating the main character, Matt Daio, Tim shared that to create the character, he had to visualize the style of the protagonist. For Tim, he wanted Matt to have a style that portrays a musician with style. As he began to sketch out his vision, it became clearer what he wanted the main character to look like.

The first step for Tim was to make a model sheet of what the protagonist looked like. The model sheet starts with portraits of the character, then details the body shape. When creating a comic, especially with different characters, it’s important that everyone has a unique style about them. This gives the reader an identity marker for each character so they can recall certain actions or events for that character in the story.

The next process Tim followed to create Matt was to turn his model sheets into 3D animation. Tim’s reasoning for this process was to have a 3D rendering of Matt Daio this gave Tim a reference for drawing the character in different positions. With the main character appearing multiple times on a sheet, Tim knew his character would need to be drawn in multiple positions. Once Tim had the portraits and 3D animation of Matt Daio to his liking, he could continue the project.
