What to expect on Zoom: Every day we will have time to share our comic book and give each other feedback. Today we will be working on the art for our comic.

Objectives:

  • Start sketching each panel and laying out the story
  • Understand difference between Thought Bubbles, Speech Bubbles, and Action Panels. Understand how to use each most effectively

TODAY’S CHALLENGE

Let’s start drawing! Begin sketching out your comic book!

Thought bubbles, speech bubbles, action panels. Does a character need speech and thought bubbles or could they communicate their actions by drawing and form alone?

Continue drawing your comics and refine your sketches.

Start coloring if you are ready.

Decide what kind of coloring you will choose for your comic book: Pencil? Pens? Watercolors or Paints?

PREPARING FOR TOMORROW

We hope you had a great day! Here’s a sneak peak of what we will be learning tomorrow:
