At a Glance: Comic Art
Comic art is a very specialized skill, and its heavily stylized look is a perfect fit for many types of projects, including commercials, book covers, video game art, advertisements, actual comics, and so much more. It encompasses many different styles, ranging from Japanese manga-inspired artwork to more comic book-style cartoon drawings, and formats that can run the gamut from Flash-based digital art to hand-drawn cartoons.
Regardless of their discipline and focus, comic artists usually have their own unique style, though they’re able to easily adapt to the different needs of a broad range of creative projects. Comic art creators are often illustrators, graphic designers, cartoonists, animators, and even occasionally game artists by trade, and they’ll help you craft just the right imagery to breathe life into any type of media or product. Using a mix of digital tools like Adobe Photoshop and more traditional hand-drawing techniques, artists on Upwork can create customized characters, objects, and background artwork, tailoring their diverse skills to your particular project.
