I thought this might spark some interesting discussion, so here goes...

Some of us have been drawing our entire lives, some of us are just starting out. We all have one thing in common, though...we all started somewhere - whether from fan comics of our favourite characters, or original concepts right off the top of our heads...

What was the first comic you ever attempted to draw? And how old were you? Smile

I've always doodled, as a kid, but the first time I remember drawing an actual comic with a plot was when I was ten. It was a Sonic the Hedgehog comic when he was at the height of his popularity when Sonic 3 first came out.

Good lord, I can't recall the FIRST one but as long as I could remember. I think the first one I named was Demon Gate, the main character for some reason wore armor suspiciously similar to Chaz from Phantasy Star IV.

Since I started the topic, I'll add mine...

I was around five when I drew my first comic, and it was called Super Duck. It wasn't really a "comic" so much as a picture book with word balloons, but it sorta counts. I'm quite certain I was inspired by the Archie Super Duck comic described on this page. (This is only half-remembered, mind you, since I never actually owned this comic - it's definitely from the right time period, though...)

After that I went on to copy Sonic the Hedgehog comics endlessly. I had a Sonic knock-off character called "Arcade the Lizard." He had this ridiculous hairdo that literally looked like a giant orange comb sitting on top of his head. Laughing

My first "comic" was a series of drawings in which I depicted how my father gets ready for work. I didn't write anything on them, but just blocked them off in order to show what he did when. I was five years old.

My father was naked in most of the drawings. (My parents were hippies and both of them walked around naked a lot.) My mom had seven brothers and sisters and she made copies for all of them and sent it to them and her parents. They had quite a laugh. My dad's comment was "Maybe it's time we start wearing clothes."

This is the one depicting him on the toilet. That's a newspaper.

I don't think I've ever actually drawn a comic strip. I spent much time in my teen years trying to emulate the popular artists of the day (Liefeld and his ilk), but never tried my hands at actually creating pages.

Nowadays I actually only write. That is fine as the artist on my comic is far more talented in that area than I am.

Wild Horse. Seriously. Never had an urge to draw anything growing up.

I take it you're making up for lost time?

Here's my first comic page, which I made back in 2005, back when I was 15. I spent a ton of time on it. It was just a one-shot bit of manga romancy fluff. Ironically, it wasn't the worst comic page I've ever made by a long shot.



This one is MUCH worse, and I made it in 2008!



As you can see, I went in a vastly different direction, thank goodness.

I drew quite a few comics featuring my own invention - a superhero named "Swingman". His suit was pretty much a close variation on Captain Americas. I must have been around ten or so. He still has a special place in my heart!

I was somewhere under the age of 8, and I re drew a four panel strip my dad made called "The incredible bulk" then I half finished a sequel after that, got bored and started drawing my own adventure/comedy books. about a guy who would get into terrible circumstances that ended badly. I named him Fred or something plane like that.

that's my story.

I used to get caught for drawing in class all the time from elementary school all the way to junior high. I had one teacher in grade 8 who thought I could put my doodling hobby to good use by drawing my projects up as comics instead of regular write ups.

My personal favorite was a superhero that saved the city by using his super powers to speed up the natural water cycle, and have it rain on the city to save it from fire.

My first comic was about ponies and a ranch. I was like 10 years old or so Razz. I don't remember anything of it.. but it couldn't have been really good XD.

I kept doing comic pages every now and then, but never anything serious until I joined elfwood many years ago (when it was still a thing). I organised some colab comic project, but it never took off.. (I think we made 3 pages all together)
Then I worked on a bigger comic project with a friend for some time, but it never made it passed the concept phase even though quite a lot if hours went into it.

Spindrift is actually my first "real" comic Very Happy.

I think I was like 6 when I drew my first comics.

It was something about some clowns at some circus, playing pranks on each other. XD One of them put some fireworks and fooled the other clown that it was popcorn and it exploded on his face. And also that other clown threw a pie back to take revenge and whatnot.

I later, when I was 12, discovered manga. XD I drew LOTS of Sailor Moon based comics. Or comics about school life. Fun times.
