I used to save the cardboard from nutri-grain bar boxes to paint on. I made a few two panel painted comics, but sadly gave them away without archiving them (there was a really great Winnie the Pooh one that I may have to recreate someday). I started this one in 2007 and wasn’t all that impressed, so I put it aside. I still don’t think the painting is very good, but I finished it today nonetheless. One less thing off the back burner to make room for more unfinished projects.
On this cold, slushy day, I was looking through CogDog’s long list of digital story telling tools and after some deliberation (the most promising comic tool had died), I chose the comic creator Pixton.
(If you see a giant spot of nothingness above this, then view comic here)
Once I got my characters created (I could not find a plaid button. Must still be in Beta.), it was just a matter of dragging them around…and then realizing that there are pre-generated poses and expressions that could have saved me a lot of time. I got more out of the essays than depicted, but this is how I explain the class to my parents.
Look how smug I look rattling off my class list.
