165 Weekend Homework Project

This project has several parts:
1. Design your own two legged character. It can be human or human like, it must have human like legs for the walk cycle to work.
2. You will draw your character
standing, have it blink and turn its head.
3. You will draw that same character in the 4 poses needed for a walk cycle.
4. Your character will not always walk, it will need to come to a stand still. So, you will need to also draw it pausing and coming to a stand still.
5. The last thing will be to have your character jump over a thing. What that thing is will be up to you.
Over the weekend you should:
1. Design a character that you will enjoy drawing over and over again.
2. Read over the handouts I have posted here. As you read you will find the page numbers that you need to read in the Richard Williams textbook. The reading in the textbook will prepare you for the walk cycle project. We will begin this on Tuesday. On Tuesday I will explain the rest of the handouts and more.

Homework Drawing project for Spring Break

165 Students: For Thursday, on a single sheet of paper in your sketchbook, divided into 4 quarters. Draw a caricature in the way that we covered it at the beginning of the semester. Use red and blue pencil followed by ink to show 4 different famous people. Make sure to note the name of each person with the drawing. This is practice for the Spring Break homework project (shown below). The page with the 4 drawings and your car drawing will be looked at next Thursday.

This is the project for the break!
Yes I'm serious.... this project will make you a better artist.
