Even though I am extremely happy to where I am at today, I would have definitely changed a few things to get here. Probably the biggest thing I would've changed would have been spending so much time on developing my plot. I wish I would've spent more time on drawing my characters, backgrounds, and common day objects. I also wish I had gotten my comic book making kit because even though it is a little bit of a shortcut, I am much more happy knowing I'll be able to make my own book with just the assistance of a computer.

I did do some thinking before I went online about whether or not I should do it because it might seem like I am cheating part of it, the drawing portion. It also puts some of the work I have done for my comic so far to waste. However, then I realized it wasn't to waste. The last few months were never about successfully creating a comic book, or learning how to draw, but find a way to make myself happy. Also realized that doing it online would make me more happy and excited to do my project because I love doing things on the computer, it's not a shortcut because it's making me happier to finish this.

This week I wanted to just work on my speech because I feel like I am a little behind on that. I want to get the point across that time management is key to happiness for a few reasons. Without this project, this assignment almost, I would not have been able to be so happy with myself. This project is like my excuse to do something that I really enjoy. I love comic books and I love the movies and the characters and the background of everything and to be able to almost live that and create something that great artists and comic book writers are able to do. There was no movie without the original comic, that's why I love doing this, it's the original. I've always been bad at drawing, or at least I've been told, even by myself that I am. My very first drawing in my notebook was a house. It was absolutely awful! But then I tried again, except something more complicated. Like the Taj Mahal, possibly the most difficult drawing architecturally but I thought it turned out awesome. The best part about all of this is that know I could do something that I was always told I really couldn't do, made it that much better.
As I continue with my blog posts I'll keep adding parts to my speech and updates on how my comic is coming.

What I do like about this so far is that it is teaching me a lot of responsibility. It teaches me a lot about myself and my potential. I like it because it makes me work not only mentally, but also physically because my drawing isn't the best. So far, the work has been pretty easy, doing research and putting things together. Now that I am moving on to the biggest part of my project, it will get a lot more difficult, but even more fun to do.

Now that I've practiced drawing characters and surroundings, I figure it's time to get into developing a solid plot. I know a few things about it so far. I know that it will be a group because every single comic I ever read is always about the one superhero, but after awhile, it gets repetitive. I'm going to incorporate the best of both worlds from a regular comic book, like the good drawings and plot along with the aspects of a super hero comic book like having the "villains" and the "good guys". I'll have the mastermind behind the group/the brains that comes up with the tactics of how the team is going to tackle the day, the mechanic whom is good with making different gadgets for the team, the surveillance man; he looks after the team to make sure they don't get caught by the police who are trying to find them and dont get blindsided by the villains. The next character is the woman. She is one of the most important characters because she is never in the field catching the perpetrator, but is head of the media. That means she controls what is released by the media and controls the identity of the team. The last character I have thought up is the muscle of the group. He knows all the moves to take down the people that need to be locked up. The only thing I need to think of before I start drawing it out is come up with a way they all meet.
