Bitstrips and Spacechips

I’ve really kind of gotten into the whole webcomics culture lately. The more I write “Reclaimer”:http://comic.shamuswrites.com, the more I like the whole notion and business of webcomics. I like to write, I like to play around with visual graphics, and of course, I’m a total Web-head. I’m actually thinking about starting to draw and write another webcomic in addition to Reclaimer. That’s still a thought in the development process, though.

So, I came across something called “Bitstrips”:http://www.bitstrips.com today (thanks to a news post on Boing Boing). I doubt very highly that I’ll ever choose to use Bitstrips as a final comic-making outlet – while being quite flexible, it’s still a bit more limited that what my imagination requires – but it is kind of fun to mess around with. I made kind of a lamely comedic comic today, mostly just to run the thing through its paces:

Feel free to go check it out, and if you end up producing a comic with it, let me know! I’m always looking for some new, quality comics to read.

  1. Perhaps you might want to try toonlet as well. Toonlet puts the focus on character creation and customization, with a powerful avatar tool so you can make cartoon characters that look authentically hand-drawn.

    From there, it’s easy to build out a library of moods for your characters to use in their comic strips.

    Come check out the site, or take the toonlet tour:

    Let us know what you think!

    Thanks!
