In your Sketchbook:
You are responsible for creating 4 characters ( Be sure to include an anthropomorphic,personified, and caricature)
Each Character needs a name and 4 characteristics described
Choose one of your characters and draw mug shot of them (Portrait View & Profile View) then you will draw the character with 6 different expressions
Be Sure to include:
A Title above the 1st Panel (an additional panel with the title is O.K.)
At Least 4 panels
Different Facial Expressions on your Characters
Your name in the bottom right corner
Do a light pencil drawing
CAREFULLY pencil in the dialogue than draw the speech balloon around the words
If you draw the bubble 1st, you will end up cramming your words and that is ugly!
WORDS 1ST= BUBBLES 2ND
This project will be graded on:
-Consistent art (character looks the same)
-Clean Work (crisp line work-not smeary, lettering is not squished)
-Following the Guidelines (Title, name,sharpies, expressions,panels)
You will receive extra credit points for splashes and spreads.

Essentials of a Good Comic Strip
Here are some elements to consider when preparing a comic strip:
The situation presented in your comic strip should be set up to reflect something that happens in everyday life. The comic strip should lampoon this circumstance, predicament or plight.
The comic strip should build up to the punch line. The beginning panels should set the reader up; the last panel should deliver the punch line of the situation presented.
Characters should be clearly identifiable to the reader. They should remind you of someone or something you’d see in everyday life.
Readers should be able to easily identify with the joke being told. Choose subject matter that relates to the majority.
