Here’s the update from our latest Comics for Kids Class. To get a quick partial recap, check out this blog entry from last year, which was half of our lesson! (Scroll only to the first part, which shows the lesson before the student work).
This year’s updated version of that lesson also discussed how to draw “flat” and non three dimensional characters/clothing, such as the very cute and graphic characters from “Adventuretime,” and also featured a section on how to do cartoon fashion illustration, for girls AND for guys!
So, without further ado, here’s the different drawings, line-work, and costuming the Meltdown Comics for Kids students did in 2014! Thanks for reading, and keep scrolling down. Everyone did a great job, worked really hard, and had very creative ideas.
By the way, Zoe’s work is the last student’s work listed, and the final drawing is of a girl with a dress and beret on. You might see lots of spacing, but all of the drawings are here! You’ll know you’ve seen everything once you’ve scrolled to that final drawing of hers.
Without further ado, here are the drawings done by our student Jasper! A fan of “Adventuretime,” Jasper prefers costume styles with a clean, graphic look to them, without too much wrinkling or shading of the garments. His first character wore a snazzy vest and clean slacks, which you can still see even though a Pencil Tornado scribbled over him! In his “Adventuretime” drawings, you can see how the human characters are well dressed, and there’s a really nice aesthetic balance between the black and white. Black shoes and white pants make black shirts pop! You can also notice the really nice line-work on the T-shirt pattern, hidden behind the black cardigans on top.
