1. The Introduction: here on skill share. I've talked about creating characters and doing character development. I've talked about how to design your characters and what you may want to look like, who you may want tohave in the Siri's. I've talked about sketching and keeping up with a sketchbook and journaling, and I've also talked about my comic strip by and by, and I've talked about that an awful lot. Well, now I'm really excited because this is a chance for me here on skill share to do something different now that I have the technology and I have the resource is I'm taking my comic strips toe a whole new level. I'm doing something where it's all digital now. And with my surface three tablet, I'm going to show you how to create a Web comic.

And then I get my five inch by 17 inch Fanboy comic strip boards by cancer, and I'll put my idea together on paper first a lot of times before I even touch my tablet. And as I sketching as I put my ideas together, I don't sketch. The aren't perfectly, but I try to put some form of how my characters to look and how want their facial expressions to be and where I want them standing. And I set up all the placement for my panels, which in this case I did three panels, and I try to put my characters together with the way I want them, and this just helps me figure out exactly how I want things to look. But when I really finalize it and when I make it look nice, clean 3. From Paper to Digital: you know.
