Product Information

  • Required Products: None

Creating effective visual narratives requires taking a step back and having a proper bird’s eye view of the universe that your stories will exist in.

The process of “World Building” as a container for your stories is the smart approach for gaining continuity and generating intrigue. It’s letting the reader know that your stories are held within a planned, comprehensive and compelling world to explore…….they simply won’t be able to wait for your next chapter!

In this set of tutorials, Peter von Stackelberg, a professional futurist, illustrator and writer teaches a must-have framework for world building.

Peter uses DAZ Studio to illustrate his own stories and helps artists work towards creating visual narratives in this tutorial set with planning their storyworlds.
