PSD Mockup Standing Upright Quarter View Graphic Novel


GRAPHICNOVEL001 is a generic adhesive-bound graphic novel. Graphic novels can range from a few dozen pages to a few hundred, this PSD Mockup represents the thickness of about 300 pages and used the WATCHMEN graphic novel as the product template. Graphic novels, like comic books, have a standard-ish product dimension.  While this particular product measures 168mm x 258mm (6.6in x 10.1in) others can be shorter or wider by up to 5mm (3/8), all the rendered samples in this post for example used content that came from graphic novels whose dimensions varied very slightly.


PSD Mockup Comic Book Face Up


COMICBOOK018 is a combination graphic novel or comic book laying on a flat surface facing up.  This PSD Mockup renders your artwork or scanned material and renders it onto a product shot of a comic book opened to the center page, the resulting PSD document which this action generates will contain multiple editable layers which you can modify to control the shadow and highlight intensity. This mockup simulates a comic book with a page density of approximately 30-40 pages.

PSD Mockup Comic Book Face Down


COMICBOOK017 is a comic book and graphic novel product mockup face down on a flat surface.  This PSD Mockup applies your comic book or graphic novel designs for the front and back covers onto a product shot which has the book open to the center page and facing down on a flat surface.  If the product is a graphic novel then the action includes an area to place the spine design, the designer simply has to toggle the layer on after the render is complete.  Shadows and highlights are fully modifyable and can (ie, should) be modified as required.

PSD Mockup Side View Graphic Novel


COMICBOOK016 is a product shot mockup for your comic book or graphic novel cover design. This PSD Mockup renders your sketched designs or final drafts on a digital old media mockup suitable for portfolio presentation or marketing purposes.  This mockup simulates a thickness of roughly 30-40 pages for both classic comic book or graphic novel mediums — highlights, shadows and masks are fully editable by the designer for post-rendering modifications.  For Photoshop CC2014 users, please be aware that CC2014 shipped with a transformation bug which remains unpatched by Adobe.  For details, and the workaround, please read my post here.

PSD Mockup Rotated Graphic Novel


COMICBOOK015 is a comic book or graphic novel product shot laying on a flat surface and rotated to 45°. This PSD Mockup renders your hand drawn sketches or final artwork onto an old media comic book mockup for presentation or marketing purposes.  The final rendered results simulate a clasic comic book or graphic novel with roughly 30-40 pages — the book is rendered closed therefore the back of the comic is not visible.  TIP: to render the back cover of the comic book simply place your back cover designs in reverse onto the template (STEP 1) and then render step 2.  When the render is complete, simply flip the entire canvas horizontally and you’ll have a rendering of your back cover.
