UPDATED-APRIL 3, 2008---
I GOT A FEW REQUESTS FOR BACKWARDS COMPATIBILITY FOR CS THROUGH CS2 SO I MODIFIED THE FILE. PLEASE LET ME KNOW IF THIS WORKS BETTER FOR YOU GUYS!

I'VE ADDED AN EXTRA SPEC FOR AMERICAN COMICS AT ACTUAL PRINT SIZE AND I MODIFIED THE LARGE AMERICAN COMIC SIZE WHICH WAS SLIGHTLY OFF IN DIMENSIONS.

AND HERE IS THE ORIGINAL POST...


This is a Template for creating comic and manga art in Adobe Illustrator.

It's preloaded with standard American comic and manga sizes like...

American standard
American standard Double Page Spread
American Standard DPS on one page

TokyoPop standard
TokyoPop standard 1.5 x up
TokyoPop standard 2 x up

TokyoPop standard DPS
TokyoPop standard 1.5 x up DPS
TokyoPop standard 2 x up DPS

I've also loaded this document with a bunch of cool brushes that are all color-coded with a directory for what each color brush does.

The brushes are colored in the brush menu but can be assigned a new color when in use. I noticed it's hard to keep track of dozens of black brush icons so I created the color code.

The page is set to 11"x 17" dimensions but you can easily change the crop marks.

This document is set for use in Adobe CS3, but I'm sure you can use it in earlier versions.

If you load this document as a User Defined Brush Pallette you can use all the brushes in other documents.

This is version 1. I'm sure you may find errors in the brushes or typos, if you do please write me and let me know. I'll fix them up as soon as possible.

Let me know what you think!

If you need comic art tutorials for Adobe Illustrator check out my blog at www.illcraft.com for more resources.



Take care,
Brian Denham

EDIT--
Some of the brushes used in this document were taken from the web. I've included a few of several different people's free brush palettes but they have a lot more to offer if you visit their sites. I didn't include whole palette's just the best of the best for what I liked.

JOE WEBSTER--JW INK BRUSHES
First up is Joe Webster who has some awesome comic style inking brushes. Be sure to adjust your stroke to change the look. I like using a very low stroke of his detail brushes. Here's where you can find out more about Joe, his awesome art, and cool tutorials and brushes...

Your download only brings up a green page. I don't know if its me or not but I'd fix it if its not.

I'm gonna sound totally stupid here most likely :P But I want to make a comic and print it out, however in the UK, we use A4, A5, etc. Are American sizes the same? Because we only use A4 and A3 in our college printers :B
