Week three assignment... How to make a comic MOOC

Hi everyone,

So here we are in week 3, I cant believe I am half way though now, and its has been an interesting MOOC.

Truth be told I didn't know or even imagined this step existed, Although it makes a lot of sense to put it in. In this step we had all 4 pages of our comic in a single page, and each page had its own 4 panels. 
 While reading though the material, I came to understood why its so relevant. As in painting, you want to be able to guide the eye so it can go though all the painting, and this is what this step does. Not only does it show you how you have to guide the eye, but you start thinking on position of things in the limited space you have.  

So here is my thumbnail study for "Where are my Keys?"

So here it is! I can now see how the comic is starting to get in shape.

Week Two assignment... How to Make a comic MOOC

Hello everyone here we are in week 2 of my MOOC.

Interesting enough we haven't started drawing, but we are starting with the script of the little comic.

And so here it is!

It was interesting to create this script. And I can see how the comic structure is being created, and it makes for saving in time instead of starting drawing right away.

In other news I's still sketching on finding my own style, and I can see that I am getting somewhere.  How ever I am not ready to show it quite yet, since I've been practicing it on the characters on this little comic.

Week one Assignment... How to Make a Comic MOOC.

Hi everyone,

As I dive into step #4 of finding my style (still in process), week #1 of my MOOC started.

This week was the start of the class where we were told the materials that we would need and the dynamics of the class was started. Because I am doing this for fun I took the Audit route of the class.

For the first week we where asked to do 2 things, 
1) a 5 minute sketch
2) the idea for a little comic that would be no more than 4 pages long.


1) so here is my 5 min sketch, and all  I can say is that I am really rusty and clearly need more drawing practice again.....

2) Title: Where are my Keys
Where are my keys is a little comic in which the main character is a fairy. It's starts by a woman summoning the fairy to ask her to help her find her keys. Once summoned the fairy tells her short story of how she met the woman while the fairy looks for the woman keys. Once she locates the keys she places the keys in the most visible position for the woman to see the keys. Then the woman suddenly sees they keys, laughs a little and thanks the fairy and leaves. The fairy ends saying that even though the woman can't see her, she is grateful to help her when she can.
This little story is based on idea that we all misplace something and somehow it ends up right in front of our own eyes. But with a little magical twist that the item is actually misplaced and that the fairy is the one that places it in the place we can see it in the end. I need a little more time to figure how it is the fairy met the woman to make the fairy talk a little. Instead of just seeing the fairy looking through different areas to find the keys...

And these where my assignments for week one. Lets see how this journey takes us.
