Its been a while since we have posted any information on online resources. Do you recall the application called Pixton
which allowed you to create comics in multiple languages. Another wonderful resource is MakeBeliefsComix.com
. Created by Bill Zimmerman, this comic strip generator is extremely simple to use.
Choose from the panels provided to start creating your comic.
Select characters from the existing artwork and place them wherever you want. Not only do you have existing artwork to decorate your comic with, but you can also resize the characters, flip them to face another direction, give them different emotions and so on. Add speech bubbles..and ta da… Your comic is ready to print or email to your friends. Users can write their comics in English, Spanish, French, German, Italian, Latin and Portuguese.
I envisioned MakeBeliefsComix.com as a place for you to come to and have fun by creating your own world of comic strips. My hope is that by giving you a choice of characters with different moods and the chance to write words and thoughts for them, you will tap into your creativity and explore new possibilities. After all, there is no greater force in life than the power of the imagination to free us from our immediate problems and to spur our energies to find solutions to our befuddlements.
The site also has teacher resources, story ideas to help you create a comic and printables too. Hop over to their site create your own comic.
