September 17, Homework

Because of MONSTER DRAW DAY! if you come to the Monster Draw, no drawing homework.


  However, if you do not come to the monster 
draw you need to draw yourself as if you were a new cast member on the My Little Pony Show as a pony. You must blend your features into the show style. Yes, that means all the guys will be... bronies.

Use your blue pencil to design the basic shape, add 

the red pencil for detail. No Graphite!, add ink (both 

thick and thin lines), full body, full page. No need to 

color your drawings. We will check them out in class. 

Either way enjoy and have fun!

Homework September 3, 2015

All you need to do over the weekend is draw out the comic in red pencil (do not add text, this will be done in class. On Tuesday I will look at each of them, make recommendations, then you will ink them as Tuesday nights homework.
The comics shown below are samples.


For the reaction shot when you show surprise you want to show a close up that really displays over the top emotion. Below are samples of artists that have done just that.
