TASK 1: Today is the day to start the final version of your comic strip – you are going to need to think carefully about putting together all the elements you have been working on this week (layout, story, script).
Watch the tutorial to get you started…
TASK 2: Once you have finished, you are going to need to ensure your comic strip is of the best possible quality and has been checked for spelling and grammar errors. You will also need to add any additional features you would like to ensure your strip is of a really high standard, just like in the real book! Are you going to go over any text in pen once it’s been checked? Do you need to colour any backgrounds?
