Print Versus Digital Comic: Dane Graves

My print and digital comics are completely different from one another, other than trying to portray some sort of emotion. My print comic was more time consuming than my digital comic to make, but I think that’s because I was trying to pull something more complicated with perspective in my print comic. Drawing by hand in some ways was simpler as I only had two tools, the pencil and a straightedge. Whereas with the digital comic I was thinking about brush size and hardness, as well as text font. When comparing viewing the comics on paper the comic will always have the same spacial ratios, whereas a digital comic can change size depending on resolution, window size (such as in a web browser), etc. Reading the first chapter of Scott McCloud’s “Understanding Comics” helped me start my digital comic by letting myself be less concerned about the structure.
