Woo Hoo! Finally found the way to bring back the old characters via changing avatars! The problem with this approach is that since I can only save 1 avatar at a time, I have to individually create them separately & that will take me more time to create the whole strip. Well, at least now that the original characters are back, I don’t have to hear Ms. Girl whining about wanting her old comic character back again!
The grandmother story about this comics:
This morning Niklas was in really good mood after his breakfast. So he started running around in the living room while waiting for his sister to finish hers. I think he must have ran too much and he started to cough a little. Then, I heard him gagged. So, I asked him if he is ok. He grinned and said proudly to me, “Mommy! I ate my vomit!!” and then continue with his running again. HAHA… That’s my silly boy! So adorable, right?!
Have to use the standard characters provided by the Strip Generator, hence the change in the Girl character.
I am still trying to figure out the mask tool, can’t seem to get it to work yet. I think once I figure that out, it will be much easier for me to create/change the features of the characters. Sigh… Frankly, I don’t really like the new Strip Generator version. I find it slower than the previous version and the browser becomes non-responsive every time I try to add or move the elements. This simple strip took me more than 1hr to create and in the end, I had to readjust the text using Paintbrush because I forgot there is still some text alignment problems with the bubbles. Quite frustrating so I deleted the original copy at SG.
Sigh… Strip Generator recently revamped their site and most of the characters that I used are gone. I’m not sure if they will ever bring back the character generator feature, but if they don’t, this maybe my last comic strip.
