Here’s a last minute, inexpensive little Christmas gift idea for an artist to go out and… well… buy for themselves, because you know nobody else is going to buy it for you… Comic Life Software… 25 bucks!
This software allows you create panels, word balloons, text, titles, everything you need to create a custom comic book page. I bought a copy last summer and to learn it, I translated the first chapter of the Biblical book of Luke, (which is really, REALLY text heavy). It was a lot of fun and the program was very easy to master.
This would be the proper time of year to post what I came up with in my portfolio section, so I have. You can see all eight pages here.
