Personally, as a female gamer, I have encountered harassment online and I believe that this inappropriate behavior should be called out upon and shunned.
As a digital illustration major in the Fine Arts department, I've always thought about the idea of creating a comic or book and this project has allowed me the freedom to do so.
My project is an on-going comic/manga in which is centered around a girl who chooses to creates a male character in an online multi-player video game because of how she was/would be viewed if she played a "female character," and how she is treated differently compared to her female counterparts and the issues that will come with pretending to play as a male. Her skills are unparalleled and is eventually scouted and asked to participate in a gaming tournament.
