For the first assignment, having to draw a comic about myself was a bit troublesome for me as while I can draw and doodle and enjoy sculpting, when it comes to comics, I consider my skills well below average. Going into it with little experience besides reading Calvin and Hobbs as a child, I did not know how to go about making my very own comic strip. I will say however, having pictures and being able to have images to express your plot. It also felt more natural and real to me than working on a computer where I got a lot more frustrated because I feel like I could not translate onto the screen the images I wanted to create.
When working on the digital comic I was completely lost, I did not even know where to start, so I had to research and find different tactics so I could complete the assignment. Once I started, I felt weird, all I wanted to do was pick up a pencil and start shading. I like seeing the imperfections within hand drawn comics, digitals works look so plain and linear to me. I also found it harder to create images of movement on a digital comic. Still, the form of digital creating I used was similar to hand drawn comics, I would be interested in learning other ways to create comics using a digital format.
