OK, bit of a newbs here, and also am trying to get a site here as well, but the main reason I'm here is I need your help on something I lack in and want to start doing.

Well, yes I draw but never before comics in depth...it's something new to me and I have been trying to do this on my own but find myself frustrated so I just take a break from it.

I see a lot of good web art and comics here and I'm blown away.
but how do you, start off with a comic I know so basic general ideas but something to get me motivated to sit down and just work ideas.

any help would be honored!

sagebrush:
Write a script.  Draw each scene with stick people.  If you have more than one scene, number all the scenes and draw little boxes around them.  Figure out where you want your boxes (panels) to go on your page.  Sketch the panel scenes again on your page, but draw them "for real" this time.  Leave space for the word balloons.  Finish the pencils, ink, and color.

Making Comics by Scott McCloud is a good reference book.

Azraelle:
I will second the mention of Making Comics.  It's an invaluable book to read for anyone wanting to get into creating comics.  If making comics was a course in school, this book would be the required text.

celebrateart:
this sounds good so far. Thanks sagebrush & Azraelle! I really appreciate it!

I've been reading Scott's book. I thank you for the source, it is actually helping to understand the comic art.
