In this section, we'll apply some of the concepts we've learned.

Assignment 1

Assignment 3 & 4 from MOD 9 (These two assignments are due for module 10, so you have an extra week or more... if your do them.)

#3 - Create an 8.5x11 color copy of a Sunday cartoon storyboard character or a comic book character page from any comic book. You may use any TV, FILM, WEB source or cartoon source or comic book with cartoon images you can find. The goal is to find or discover a STYLE in your drawings using color. Comic book art is serious art and inkers or colorists use multiple tricks to find ways to make the comics more dynamic. This exercise will give you practice in fast rendering methods to create color sketches. These do not have to be finished renderings. They can be done over black and white xerox drawings from the weekly or Sunday comics. Use marker paper, not bond paper.

#4 - Using one of the several examples shown in the learn section of this MOD OR examples used in MOD 9, draw and create a black and white and a color MODEL sheet for a comic, film or story character. Fun is the goal of this exercise and you shoull research OTHER online model sheet examples for reference. HINT: Disney or Hanna Barbera, Star Wars, Ice Age, or other sources exist online for wonderful opportunities to explore character MODELS sheets. YOu can use ANY characters you like to complete ONE model sheets. Try NOT to trace but use an outline drawing style to create the sheet. Try to use thick and thin lines to give the characters more life and zest in your drawings. Label the sheets with your name and the name of the character your modeling.
