In La, we made a comic for some of the wisdom tales that we read. We could pick any wisdom tale. I chose The Boatman from the Middle East. It was fun to draw our own pictures and design a comic. People used Skitch and Sketchbook Express to draw. I used Skitch. In class we had to write a summary and find out what the moral was for every story. We had stories from all over the world. I really liked making the comic.
One of my favorite games is Risk. I like it because it has a lot of strategy and a little bit of luck unlike Sorry. One reason why I like it is the way it represents real life. How people rise to the top and take out others. How cut throat real life is and how not everybody can be a winner. But the thing I sometimes find I don’t like about Risk is that it’s so intense that it can ruin friendships and make you really bitter.Otherwise Risk is a fun game which everybody will enjoy.
I will be telling you how to make a comic on your computer. Yes, you heard me right. A comic made on YOUR computer.
1. Get the Apps; You can get Skitch for free of the App Store, whereas unfortunately Comic Life 2 Costs $29.99 (In dollars, for any foreigners who might be reading this).
2. Open Comic Life 2, and decline the updates and the email window.
3. Chose from a number of templates; once you open up your comic you can also chose the layout of the comic.
4. You can also choose a variety of comic bubbles, like the thought bubble and the angry bubble.
Let’s get to Skitch. Once you download and open Skitch, you will see two links. Push ‘Wipe’, which is on the bottom right of the screen. You can draw anything you want, like a circle, square, and you can choose from an almost infinite amount of colors. Once you finish your drawing, you can drag it (there is a thing at the bottom of the screen that you can drag it from), after you save it, of course. Then open Comic Life 2 again (in the comic you already started, and you can drag the picture into the comic and voila. If you keep this up you will eventually have a full comic.
