For Tuesday

Hi everyone, 
I hope your weekend was great, here is a reminder for this Tuesday.
165 Students: 
In your sketchbook, using your Blue & Red pencil, try drawing yourself using the 3 photos you took in class. Front view, 3/4 view and profile. For this first project I'm looking for simple drawings, we will practice them in class, I don't expect everyone to make them perfect the first time. The main thing is to try and have fun.
166 Students:
If I gave you the go ahead, you should be working on your character page for the walk character and sketching out ideas for the flying & swimming characters, here are some images for you to consider as you work on your designs.
See you Tuesday,

Below is a good character page.
