Creating a story and a storyboard
Every comic starts somewhere, and that start is the creation of a story. Every story starts with a concept: an idea, or something along those lines. Now, there is no failsafe method when it comes to the concept. The only thing I can say is this: the concept is not important, what is important is the execution. What do I mean by this? Let's see some examples:
- Batman? A rich orphan who fights crime
- Sonic? A blue hedgehog that runs really fast
- Castlevania? A guy who needs to whip Dracula to death, and sometimes Dracula's son helps too
So, even if you have a high concept, it doesn't mean you will succeed. I think you can name at least 10 stories with high concepts that failed miserably.
So, the question you should be asking is not "How do I come up with a good concept?"
Instead, you should be asking: "How can I execute my idea well?"
For that, there is some general advice that could be useful....
