Over the weekend I will be adding your Blogs and Tumblers to the class blog, so you will be getting an email from me at some point. On Monday at the end of class the final version of the Head project is due... I think at this point most of you will have it done with no problem. For the weekend drawing homework I would like you to try drawing yourself as an over the top Basil Wolverton / Tex Avery style cartoon character. As always use your red/blue pencil and add Ink on top. We will look at them in class on Monday.
Oh... as a side note... if you have created a blog and you have an iphone you can down load the blogger app from the app store and then be able to just take a photo of your work and upload it from your phone.
Hi everyone, Nice job on the head turns... they are looking great. Keep working on the Transformations... they are due at the end of class this Thursday. In class today I will show you the last part of this project.
Wow! what a great week everyone,you have all worked very hard and are really creating some very good drawings. The heads animations are looking great... on Monday we will continue working on them. In order to get you ready for next week I have some reading for you to do. In the Richard Williams textbook. Read pg. 217-221 (Flexibility),
246-250 (Flexibility in the Face), 285-289 (Takes and Accents),
320-322 (Change of Expression)
For the Second part of the Homework, in you sketchbook, full page, using your red or blue pencil for the sketch and the black pen for the final outline, draw yourself as a Peanuts character. The drawing must look like Charles Schulz drew you himself. http://schulzmuseum.org/
For this project you have to really look at his drawing style and think about how you might combine your facial characteristics into his drawing mannerisms. Below I have drawn my own interpretation of myself as a Peanuts character.
If you really want to get a leg up on next week, try coming up with some sketches in your sketchbook that play with different different animals or objects that you could transform into.
If you are having a hard time coming up with something to transform into, have a look at the class you tube channel. You will find the link on the right hand side of the blog.
Have a great weekend...
Make it weird, make it dramatic and make it snappy!
