Comic Book Creator - Day 1

Today is day one of Comic book creator.  We started things off easy with just a simple self portrait to get familiar with the process of creating our own art.  First we start by taking a digital photo, then printing the photo and tracing it.  Then we scan that trace into the computer and use Adobe Photoshop to give it color.  It's a cool effect and if the students get good at it they'll be able to create a bunch of images, enough for a panels and pages and before you know it a whole comic book!

Video Game Creator: Day 2 or 3

Games are serious business and we got down to business with our video game designs.  We had a chance to kick the tires and see what was possible using Flowlab, last time.  This time it's all about realizing our vision and creating the video game of our dreams!  Only one more class to go and then you can try them for yourselves!

Video Game Creator: Day 1... or is it 2?

We're back!  We took a sick day on Tuesday so even though today is the 2nd day it's actually of the 1st.  Still with me?
We are making video games using Flowlab.  Flowlab is simple, but very powerful.  The students are figuring it out as they go along and asking for help when they get stuck.

Check out this level I made in about 5 minutes to get an idea of what to expect:
