I can do it myself!


I'll admit it, I like feeling independent. I still feel like I am mooching off of Adam sometimes, even though we're married. Sometimes this insecurity manifests itself in odd ways. When I'm sick I am especially deranged about it. "I'll get you some medicine." "NO, don't worry I can get it."Or if I have a stiff neck Adam will recommend hot water and I will roll my eyes and tell him "thanks MOM."

Anyway... that explains the little comic I made. My sister got a tablet for me, and I have some software to make comics with, so it works out pretty well! I still have a long way to go in figuring out how to use all the tools (I am scared to use the eraser). Mostly I wanted to produce something that was legible (yay?).

Hee hee, I like your comic. I know what you mean. :-)

The best tablet program we've found is the free Mypaint:

Give it a try; it's got lots of great brushes and is easy to use with the tablet in one hand and the other hand on the keyboard.

hmmm... I really want to learn how to use the Manga Studio software I got, but maybe mypaint would be a good stepping stone?
