In the previous post, we talked about the ways in which you could be buying comic book art for yourself. We learnt about sketch art as well. Let us now learn about three more types of comic book art forms.
- Panel art/page art
When you buy art that is a real comic book page, it is known as panel/page art. You will find many types of panel arts. There could be only the hero of your comic book standing in his costume and doing his favorite action stunt or there could be a full blown action sequence. The less detail there is, the lesser you will have to pay for it. The cost is usually lower than a cover page.
- Splash page art
A splash page is defined as any page in the comic book where the main character of the comic occupies the entire page of the art. Such kind of art is usually good for people who are very fond of comic book characters. There are either one or two full pages of heavy action sequences and you would certainly appreciate them if you are fond of anime characters. They are one of the most expensive types of comic book arts.
- Cover page art
These are the costliest art of them all. Cover page art is found on the first page/cover page of every comic book. These cover pages usually have the whole area covered and you find the most dramatic artworks in cover pages only. Cover pages of some special editions of comic books are even more expensive.
Know more about price breaks
The price break for your comic book art will be determined by many factors. One of the most important factors that you should keep in mind is the popularity of the character. The more popular the character, the higher price you will have to pay. Secondly, you have to think about the kind of art that you are buying as well. If it is the cover page art of the comic book of a very popular character, then you would probably have to spend a fortune in buying it. Also make sure that you get to know who the artist is. Some celebrated artists will always fetch a higher price for each of their creations as compared to lesser known artists. Spending a few hundred dollars this way is quite common. The final factor that would contribute to the price of the comic book art is its age. Usually, if an art is older, it will always fetch a much higher price than a comparatively newer art.
Finding comic book art is easy these days. A simple Google search will connect you to hundreds of different buyers and sellers of comic book art. Just make sure that whatever you buy is original and has a nice visual appeal. Moreover, find only those characters that you genuinely like and follow. Make sure that all your comic book art is framed professionally so that you can get the most visual value from it.
