This week’s Comics for Kids Class here at Meltdown was a ton of fun! We reviewed some character design principles, while learning a new thing that’s important when drawing comics, and characters that are going to look as if they are moving: The Line of Action.
Read on, to see the lesson we went through. And scroll beyond that to see everyone’s stellar work this week!
How to DRAW Characters in Motion, and THE LINE OF ACTION!
A character is who a story is about– and designing your character is very important when you want to make a comic.
Returning students, and those who have started their own stories outside of class—you have characters you have already created. A little of this lesson will be “Character Design” review, but it mostly is full of new stuff!
This lesson can help you CONTINUE to work on the drawing and design of those characters—or, it can help you decide how to create NEW characters.
For those of you who have not yet created a character—or created characters, but not sure which ones you want to tell stories about— this will help!
