Comic Books: Thinking Outside the Presentation Box

  1. 1. Welcome to Dogwood! Comic Books: Thinking Outside the Presentation Box
  2. 2. Thanks for coming! I’m Chris Casal. Follow me @mr_casal and @HeathcoteTech http://bit.ly/comicslhric2018
  3. 3. So, thinking outside the box? Let’s work backwards and see some examples first... http://bit.ly/comicslhric2018
  4. 4. So, how do we create a comic book with Slides?
  5. 5. Start with Google Drawing..
  6. 6. I like Shapes the best. Easiest to manipulate
  7. 7. I was made in Google Drawing!
  8. 8. Blank canvas...
  9. 9. Biggest trick… Layer shapes and make borders same color as fill to cover overlaps...
  10. 10. 2 overlapping circles… Keep in mind, there is no “erase” tool...
  11. 11. 2 overlapping circles… Keep in mind, there is no “erase” tool...
  12. 12. A 3rd circle, resized and shaped to cover the overlap… The Zoom tool is your friend!
  13. 13. Change the Line color of the 3rd shape the match the Fill
  14. 14. And there you have it!
  15. 15. Once you’re done, click and drag to highlight all the pieces, then Arrange- >Group to make a single object
  16. 16. Save all speech and thought bubbles for Slides, keep the character as clean as possible in Drawing
  17. 17. Let’s do a live demo!
  18. 18. After you’ve Grouped your character, Copy it, then Paste into a new Google Slides file...
  19. 19. But how do we make Slides a comic?
  20. 20. Think outside the box!
  21. 21. This is a BIG circle on the slide...
  22. 22. Only what is in the box gets seen… Color outside the lines to “hack” the deck
  23. 23. Semi circle success! Use the Arrange-> Order menu to layer objects as you see fit. Put objects/boxes in front and behind one another
  24. 24. Changing the color of the semicircle creates a “hill.” Adding a large box, and sending it to the back created a blue sky above my hill. And then animated clouds... My hill!My sky! My clouds!
  25. 25. You can also animated the clouds by having them start off the slide...
  26. 26. You can also animated the clouds by having them start off the slide...
  27. 27. This is the narration box... Add a “post” to the narration box so it looks like a sign!
  28. 28. Think of this box as narration or voice over... These are for dialogue...
  29. 29. Cultural Tour Comics - 3C http://blogs.scarsdaleschools.org/heathcotetech/ 2016/07/07/cultural-tour-comics-3c/ For examples, check out the link on the sign, or scan the QR code!
