3D Modeling and Animation for Comic Strips
Benefits of Using 3D Modeling and Animation for Comic Strips
Comic drawing has significantly evolved over the years. Contemporary comic artists are not using the tools and methods used by people, say, three decades ago. Today, many artists are also warming up to the idea of 3D modeling and animation for comic strips. We believe that 3D modeling, rendering, and animation can be a real gamechanger for the comic book industry.
In this post, we will walk you through all the benefits of using 3D modeling and animation for the development of comic strips.
You Can Create a Better Set Design
Whether Gotham City or Metropolis, backdrops play an important role in progressing the story and character arcs in comics. Therefore, well-thought-out set designing is a must for storytelling on this medium. 3D modeling and animation applications can turn out to be great tools for generating the details of fictional cities and towns in comics. A better set design rendered by 3D software will make your characters and storylines more impactful.
3D Modeling Enables More Control Over Avatar Creation
The look of the characters plays an important role in the success of any comic strip. No matter how good the plotline and dialogues are, a comic might fail to create an impact if its avatars don’t look the part. With 3D modeling and animation software, you can get around the limitations of a human artist and strive for better avatar creation that suits your storyline.
For instance, with 3D modeling and animation, you can decide how perfect or imperfect you want any character to look. Similarly, you can personify many behavioral and metaphysical attributes (fury, magic, life, death, happiness, love, etc.) more effectively through 3D modeling and animation.
You Can Get All the Scene Details Right
The light, the projection, the spatial resolution— all these things can make any comic strip scene more striking. Conventional comic strips usually have characters with monotonous expressions in all scenes and situations. You can also get around this issue through 3D modeling and animation. 3D animation and avatar rendering allow you to work on comic characters’ facial expressions as per the scene’s demand.
Even average stories and characters can get traction if every scene in the comic strip has all the details in the right place.
You Can Save the Comic Art from Dying
Many people believe that the traditional comic strips will die in the next few years due to the lack of interest from the new generation. It’s a fair point that comic art doesn’t resonate with young people born in the age of HD, handheld gadgets, and state-of-the-art graphics. 3D modeling and animation provide artists an opportunity to make comic strips that can draw kids’ attention used to watching animated features from Disney and Pixar.
