What Did I Do On My Birthday?

 A few days ago was my birthday. As a thank you to my friends for all the birthday e-mails and messages I decided to use my recently learned skills and make a little comic. All the b-day messages were very much appreciated.

bff1final-copy“BFFs” is the final result of my comic book making class. I’d learned a lot and really enjoyed the course. I think I’ll keep on making little comics in the future. They are loads of fun to create.

5 Minute Sketch

IMG_20160820_130226

 

In order to motivate myself to do more art, I signed up for a comic book making class. The class is not purely about art, but also script writing, story development, image editing, lettering…basically the whole shebang. It’s 6 weeks long and the main goal is to tell a story in about 16 panels which will be made into a professional looking (hopefully) comic book.

So far the course is pretty interesting. This week we were discussing comic book ideas and what makes a story good. Next week we’ll learn about script writing. Today however, I’ve actually learned something about myself: I don’t draw as good under time restrictions (and timers make me nervous)! Don’t get me wrong, I completed plenty of paintings and drawings under various deadlines, but today I felt like I was put on the spot. Ready, set, draw!

Our first art assignment was to sketch something in 5 minutes. To ensure there was no cheating we were timed (with an egg timer!). It did not matter what was sketched as long as it fit in the 5 minute time span, because once the buzzer went off all pencils went down. I’ve noticed that the buzzer ticking away made me a little nervous, and before I decided if I was sketching a girl or a boy (although the picture came out more girly) time was up. The 5 minute sketch, in my case, has proven to be a little challenging, the drawing is not as clean or proportional as I’d like it to be. However, considering the time restriction I don’t think I did all that badly. I even tried to smudge some shadows around the cheeks with my finger.  I think I’ll keep practicing 5 minute sketches, but I’ll probably use my phone and keep away from egg timers for a while. 😉

Sunburn

I got sunburned on a grey and cloudy day. Not exactly sure how it happened, but I imagine it went something like this (click on the picture to make it bigger) :

Remember: always wear sunscreen- even on grey and cloudy days 🙂
