End of the first week of Summer Class Homework

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...  
and remember,
Make it weird, make it dramatic and make it snappy!
