This resource three lessons long and introduces the idea of visual language in the context of comic book illustration. Student will create and introduce their own character with four different shots: a close up, profile, long shot and full body shot. They will then practice the use of mark making, using ink, to create tone and texture and applying ink to their comic.
Each lesson consists of: a 'hook' or starter; objectives; visual instructions with differentiated learning outcomes, peer assessment and/ or self assessment and a plenary. Printable resources are at the end of the powerpoint, visual instructions and worksheets as well as artist images. These lessons refer to a range of comic artists and are an ideal follow up to learning how to draw the face and body without using reference.
