How well known is Scott Mccloud’s “Path of Creation” concept from his book Understanding Comics?

To date it’s the best method of modeling mastery i’ve seen.

The 6 steps for drawing comics for example are:

6/ surface: copying.
5/ craft: perspective, anatomy, etc...
4/ structure: storytelling
3/ idiom: new techniques

2/ form: expressing sth. about art, an explorer stretching boundaries

1/ idea/purpose: expressing sth. about life, art as a tool

All creation is surface to core and back out

@aRandomCat I think about this all the time! mostly when I am literally drawing comics, but also for other things.
