You got one chance to walk away Mizha, but you couldn’t let it be, and Zhiro has officially reached the end of his ability to hold his tongue.
As is tradition, it’s the first vlog of the month over on Patreon, so it’s open to everyone! If you’d like to see all my weekly vlogs, please become a supporter for as little as $1 a month!
In today’s vlog:
- Character motives and how it impacts visual design.
- Why Una does what she does and my hopes for her future.
- The trial and error process of teaching.
To follow-up on the lesson-plans I discuss in the vlog, today’s class went really well. I set up the projector and camera so they could see what I was drawing, and we went through the exercise together. I asked them to pick an animal, then drew an animal character while talking about line of action. Then we went through the three motivators (want, fear, belief) and discussed how we could reflect those aspects of the character in the drawing, adding things according to their suggestions.
Once we’d gone through all three, I asked them to come up with their own characters and go through the same activity. I was really impressed at how some students crafted scenes and used props to help get their ideas across. Lots of expressive drawings and creative ideas. The substitute teacher who was helping me decided to participate as well and came up with a mysterious and battle-scarred mermaid. Overall, it was a good day. What did you get up to?
