If you look at the sketchbook handout I gave you at the beginning of the quarter, you have a sketchbook due next week. However, as I will be in Chicago on Wednesday, I’m going to make it due on Wednesday, 4/5. I am still going to post examples today, and I would suggest that you do the sketchbook this weekend, just as you would if I were not postponing the deadline.
This week, your sketchbook assignment is a “body in motion.” Remember what we talked about today concerning Marcel Duchamp and his “Nude Descending a Staircase” (below). Also below are examples of this sketchbook that previous students have done.
I have uploaded the websites from our last unit. Some people did not export them correctly, so I was not able to upload the proper files. If your name is not linked, it means that you did not export your site correctly. Click on the link below to open a new window that will show you your website, as it would look on the internet:

This week, you have a sketchbook assignment due on Wednesday. Read the directions on the sketchbook assignment sheet very carefully!
Here are some examples – and remember, you must sketch “anger,” “surprise,” and “happiness.” The last sketch is an emotion that you must chose.
Also, don’t just change the character’s mouth to express their emotions: Use their eyes, their eyebrows, their ears, maybe even the shape of their head? It’s up to you, but use everything you can to express what the character is feeling!
Below are the examples we went over in class for your sketchbook assignment this week. Remember, you need a minimum of 8 frames, but most people will use around 12 or so. Also remember, keep the action simple and fun. Don’t go too complicated with the story, or else we’ll have to dial back.
Below is a PDF file that has all the sketchbook assignments for this quarter:

Your first exercise/project in Adobe Animate is a series of four exercises to give you practice in using Tweens to animate objects in Animate. Below is the handout with instructions, and under that is a video of the 4 exercises. Under the video is a screen shot of all of the settings you need to change whenever you create a new Actionscript 3.0 Animate file.

Your sketchbook for next week (and the last one of the quarter) is called foreshortening. Basically, have a model lie down and then put yourself at one end of the person, relatively close to them. You are essentially to draw them in perspective. See below for examples of previous student’s sketches that I think will help you. And remember – Shade your drawing! Line drawings will not be accepted.
This Wednesday, you need to finish a 2-point perspective sketchbook. We’ve talked a lot about it in class, but here are a few examples to help you out. Remember these few points:
- This drawing needs to be from real-life. Not made-up, nor from some random picture on the internet. Draw what you see, including windows, doors, planters.
- You may take a photograph of your house and draw from that. However, please print it out, because it is basically impossible to get a proper level of detail from a 4″ iPhone screen. Printing it out in black and white might also help you see the shading/values a bit more, so this could be advantageous.
- Remember, in 2-point perspective, both sides of the house are going away from you, so they are both going back to a vanishing point.
- Also remember that the examples below, as well as the video, are just showing you the mechanics of how 2-point perspective works. Do not copy these examples, or do what s in the video. You are supposed to be drawing this from a real-life example.
