I know I still have to post the Mentor notes and drawings for Assignment #5- and they are done- so that will come in the next day or two, but I want to have some overlap here so I am posting the LAST ASSIGNMENT now!
This Assignment #6 is for the running "mentorship" program I have here on DA. For those that don't know (skip to next paragraph if you know about these) I have posted "assignments" from time to time that I then look over and pick two from the batch to draw over and make suggestions on how they could be improved. That's the mentorship part. I can't do it for everyone, but, hopefully, you can see the notes I made on the couple I chose and learn something from that. I know thats the way I learn best- by example. The second element to this is that I am working on a character posing and expression book that will be out next year from Focal Press. My goal is to include your drawing (if it is chosen) and my "mentor" notes as examples in the book.
FOUR THINGS FOR EVERYONE TO REMEMBER:
1)Don't submit a drawing if you don't want it included in the book (I am giving full credit to the artist, but I do not have a budget to pay you). (I will need your REAL name and an email address to send a permission form to you later.)
2) PLEASE add your link to the artwork in the comments section to THIS JOURNAL. It makes it easier to me to find everything if its in one place. Don't NOTE me your link, please.
3) Scan your artwork at the correct size or template if I provided one (listed in the description below) but make sure it is hir res 300 DPI, CYMK please. Low res will look bad for book reproduction.
4) Sketches ONLY please. You can use colored pencil underdrawing (like I do) and even a little shading if you like but go over it with graphite for the tie down so you have a darker line that will show up with you scan it. I don't need colored images and I'd rather you get this done and just do a sketch.
Here's the idea:
This is a bit harder than the last few!
Create two panels to illustrate the same moment/event, but from two different angles/perspectives. One will be to spotlight the character's reaction ("Character-Driven" point of view) and the other to illustrate the story point being made ("story-driven" point of view).
Use a 5"x7" rectangle format for both panels and pace them together on the same image/file, with each labeled for which point of view you've illustrated. YOU CAN USE THIS ONE: [link]
Use the situation and character designs below:
"Megan and Adam are running through the forest singing to each other. They are starting to like each other. They both do not notice the pit Adam is about to fall into."
Here are Megan and Adam's character designs: [link]
(Hint: in this situation, seeing the hole in the ground is the Story point, seeing the two characters interacting (and singing to each other) is the Character driven point of view.)
If you need some kind of a background idea (I sure do) think of this as taking place in a background from Pocahontas. Here's a link to a bunch that I think would work: [link]
