The handout says Monday but 
we will begin on Tuesday.

2. On Tuesday Dec. 3, be ready to scan and ink the images then place into Flash. 

3. The Walk Cycle is Due at the end of class on Thursday Dec. 5. 

*Color is optional
*You must include a background that matches the style of your character.
*Include opening and closing credits.
*The goal is to have the character walk across the stage: begin by having the character start from off stage, walk onto the stage and all the way across and off the other side. Then have the character do the same thing from the opposite direction.
*Turn in as a swf. to me and upload to ACME as a .mov

Work on fine tuning your minimalist drawings. If you did not do all 12 you need to complete the project. Some of you need to redraw from the start, you know who you are. Besides completing the last drawing project, You homework for Thursday is to draw another character in the same minimal style. The theme is to draw that childhood acquaintance that followed you around and looked up to you when you were little. Be prepared to tell us about the person. Please ink using two thicknesses of pens.
