Creating a digital comic allows the author to edit the image faster, and fine tune their art. Using illustrator, I was able to make the comic quicker, but I could not add all of the small details I could by hand. Digital comics also have brighter colors and cleaner lines, but more black space that could be filled.
Making the comic by hand was easier for me to add any details I wanted. Using illustrator, it was difficult to add lines to show the muscle tone and small aspects like that. Drawing the comic by hand also allowed me to fill blank space easier and put more detail into the images. Using no words in my comic, I did not have to write and word blurbs, which would have been easier on a software like illustrator.
