The Good, The Bad & The Ugly
1st year Cartoon and Comic Arts students are already producing work. Here was a quick component of a module I ran that encouraged students to look at characters and develop them instead of drawing the first thing that entered their head.
The first job was just a basic introduction to the primative shapes and how they can develop your characters personalities. whether they are triangles which are pointed and dangerous and generally are shapes used to portray evil and untrust worthy characters. Or squares where the character are more solid and reliable. and circles are fun and cuddly.
The next element was shilouettes
This was done to get the students to think about stance and posture. When the detail was removed could the apperance of the character communicate what type of person they were suppose to be?
Overall the students seemed to enjoy the final stage of adding colour and deatil to their ideas, Below is The Good, The Bad and The Ugly
All 3 images were drawn by 3 different students on the Cartoon and Comic Arts Award 2011
