Comic Illustrators Camp

For my first group this summer, we started out the week listening to an old classic, The Shepherd and the Wolf by Aesop. It’s better known as the boy who cried wolf. The students created a number of shot cards to illustrate this story after learning about the different types of shots. The next day we traveled outside to draw on location while talking about the different layouts that are used in illustration. On Wednesday, they started to work on their own comic character and created a model sheet. They had the choice of a static model sheet, which has the character rotate 360 in one pose. The other option was to have the character in dynamic poses, with lots of action and movement. The final project was to create a 6 panel comic that was inked and colored. Enjoy the little bit of pictures I was able to take during this busy camp!
