Rather than watching Saturday morning cartoons, our students will be creating them! After designing their own character, students will learn traditional hand-drawn animation techniques and how to break down motion and timing into key frames and in-betweens.
Students will be lead through an intensive few hours of gesture and timed drawings inspired by live models (this will be a clothed modeling session).
The intent of this workshop is to introduce students to the basic concept of storyboarding for film, animation and corporate use. Stan will go over the basics for each use and dip into compressed and decompressed storytelling methods with an eye to the connection between story and comics.
Description: Jeff Hanada, accomplished draftsman and life drawing specialist, will lead LINK students through a session that will teach students how to draw the human figure. From gesture drawing to drawing from a live model, life drawing is a powerful tool to catapult one's ability at rendering.
Students will learn the art of storytelling through comics. Drawing a comic is akin to cinematography with no limitations but the imagination and ability of the artist. With the most basic of materials, the 2-D medium can flow and be packed with movement. We will learn how to use perspective and composition to create a visually compelling story that enhances the written word.
