Developing an Idea

Think you have a great idea for a comic strip? Everybody has ideas pop into their head, but how do you know the difference between a good idea and a bad idea? Knowing the difference may prevent you from going through a lot of trouble and frustration later. Here are a few things to consider when mulling over an idea for a comic strip:

✓ Choose a subject that you find appealing. Otherwise, you may find the idea tedious and dread working on it down the road.

✓ Choose a unique idea. Try and find something that no one else has done before to set yourself apart from the crowd.

✓ Choose an idea based on a theme that you know something about.

This gives you special insight into the world you're creating and makes it easier for you to come up with future story lines.

✓ Most important, be creative! Think outside the box. Develop your characters in ways that play against stereotype, or choose a setting that's out of the ordinary.

Every creative engineer needs a solid plan, and the plan for developing your comic strip world starts with a great idea.
