Come to Southern Maryland Comic Con for 6 hours of comic book fun! Not only will we have 8 artists and a fantastic face painter showing off their talents in Artist Alley., but we're in charge of the Kids Zone! Come participate in the following four panels, planned throughout the day:
COMIC BOOK TOOLS & TECHNIQUES: INKING

Ever wonder how to use line weight and shading to add more depth and definition to your images? Have a seat and watch Artist Paolo Galang as he teaches the inking tools and techniques that help any image take shape.
THE ART OF DRAWING CHIBI
12:00 PM - 1:00 PM
Chibi is a style formed from Japanese anime and manga, the word itself means "small child". This is fitting for a style that exaggerates features like head size and shape, height, and eye size. In this class students will learn to transform a character into a Chibi! We will explore different styles of Chibi as well as pinpointing key features to capture the identity and attitude of a character. Hosted by Dennis Johnson.
