Description de l'ouvrage

30 octobre 2007
How to Draw Noir Comics: The Art and Technique of Visual Storytelling is an instructional book based on the cinematic, high contrast noir style of acclaimed comic book and graphic novel illustrator, Shawn Martinbrough.

Martinbrough’s work has been published by DC Comics, Vertigo and Marvel Comics, illustrating stories ranging from Batman to the X-Men. This is his first book, released through Watson-Guptill Publications and The Nielsen Company.

In How to Draw Noir Comics, Martinbrough shows how the expert use of the color black is critical for drawing noir comics. He demonstrates how to set a mood, design characters and locations, stage action and enhance drama, and discusses important topics like page layout, panel design, and cover design.

How to Draw Noir Comics includes The Truce, an original graphic novel written and illustrated by Martinbrough which incorporates the many lessons addressed throughout the book, and has an introduction by critically-acclaimed novelist Greg Rucka, author of the graphic novel Whiteout, currently in production as a major motion picture.

JE dessine mais le noir et blanc, c'est tout un art à part entière. TRés bon bouquin pour l'appréhender et comprendre comment obtenir un rendu clair et lisible en noir et blanc.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Straightforward with lots of personal examples 28 janvier 2009
Par Parka - Publié sur Amazon.com
Everything in the book is explained simply and clearly with lots of personal examples. He tries to address the many approaches to creating noir comics and does them well. For example when explaining the tools he used, he would talk on the type of ink to buy (fade and erase-proof), how to maintain them and choosing the right tools for the job.

The main bulk of the book deals with comic creation specific to noir style. He explains the ways to create mood, lighting and texture to aid the story. And also touches the comic creation part like paneling, pacing, creating drama, choosing backgrounds, using references and more. All the examples included are well caption to emphasis the techniques reviewed.

At the end of the book is a 16-page noir style graphic novel to show readers the finished product.

This book is a great introduction to noir comics and serves as a great reference.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 FaceComics review 26 mars 2009
Par Ian F. Ellis - Publié sur Amazon.com
I have recently read Shawn Martinbrough's new book "How to draw noir comics," and this is my review:

If ever a comic book could have special features and directors commentary this is what it would look like. Shawn Martinbrough has seamlessly interwoven the process of experiencing and learning about art in his masterful book. While there are many books about learning how to draw most of them fall into two spectrums "the kids style" and "the professional artist." These two types of books are a reflections of the broader view of comic book art that trivializes the artist without paying any respect to the frantic deadlines, and vast range or material any given artist is asked to produce. Shawn's book shatters that stigma in a way that could potentially revolutionize the industry. Should Shawn's example be followed by artist like Tim Sale or Jim Lee a new generation of artist will surely be inspired to draw their "bowls of fruit" and put in their 2,000 bad drawing before giving up and never reaching that first masterpiece. Shawn's book is the middle ground between "kids book" and "professional artist" that defines his medium, and inspires the reader to try harder. In short, this book is a fan boys dream, and an aspiring artist must read.

If you liked Shawn Martinbrough's book I also highly recommend picking up Dave Sim's latest publication "Glamourpuss." Glamourpuss follows the history of noir comics from Milt Caniff to Bruce Tim while simultaneously taking a satirical look at the life of a lofty young super model called "Glamourpuss."

Best wishes to all

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Valuable insight from a distinctive creative voice 4 mars 2008
Par J. DOUGAN - Publié sur Amazon.com
I'm a comics writer, not an artist, so I almost started this review by saying that I bought the book just to look at the pictures. And who could blame me? Shawn Martinbrough is one of the most original and distinctive stylists in modern mainstream comics. In a sea of imitators and variations on a house style, his artwork is instantly recognizable. His run on DETECTIVE COMICS with writer Greg Rucka (who writes the introduction to this book) is a landmark to me, in that it was one of the things that brought me back to reading comics after a long absence.

But Martinbrough's strengths lie far beyond his style - he has a true mastery of the *craft* of sequential storytelling, which is what makes this book such a valuable read, for aspiring artists and students of the medium in general. Reading about his process has given me much food for thought in how to evaluate and critique the work of other artists, as well as in how to better compose my scripts for artists to create the maximum impact in the collaboration. In short, HOW TO DRAW NOIR COMICS is a fine read for anyone interested in creating comics, whether one's work is done at the drawing board or at the keyboard.

Oh, and you get to look at the cool pictures, too.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 great great GREAT book!!! 28 novembre 2007
Par echobanzai - Publié sur Amazon.com
hey, i have been a fan of martinbrough's since his days on Creeper, then his LEGENDARY run on BATMAN! way back, he did some inking on some MILESTONE comic books, and you could see, how much he IMPROVED the pencils, by adding his amazing inks to the art. and now, they finally got it right! Martinbrough, whose dark and moody inks have always intrigued, has made a 'HOW TO DRAW' book, and this is THE book to own! I love drawing in black and white, pen and ink, and now, i have the perfect reference book to work from. i HIGHLY recommend this book to everyone, who wishes not only to be a better comic book artist, but to be a better ILLUSTRATOR as well. tons of great art, tons of great ideas, this book is just hands down, a WINNER. buy it!

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Pretty but . . . 6 février 2011
Par Arthur Elliott - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
I love Shawn Martinbourgh. I really really like his art work, his Detective Comics run in particular. His thick blacks are amazing to look at and there are a lot of great images in this book..

But the "Why's" behind the book are weak or non existent. This book just isn't in depth enough. If you know enough about making comics to be aware of this book then you are aware of all the "tricks" he shows you. He skims by the thought process for panel set up. He skims past framing the central action of a panel. It's mainly skim. Never any cream.
