ADMIN: Exercise Prompts -- Week #6
Sorry, that it's been more like two weeks rather than one since the last prompts...
As always, it's okay to post responses to prompts from previous weeks even if new prompts are already up. So if you have tried anything inspired by older prompts, please feel free to still post! And if you have any suggestions for drawing exercises and prompts, or comments/feedback on the ones I posted, please comment.
1. Playing with color schemes.
Draw a simple sketch of something, and then try different color schemes for the object in contrast to the background color. (Obviously if you draw a complicated motif rather than a ball or a cube or something like that, it would be simpler to do such variations with computer coloring, but the principle is the same in traditional media.)
Examples for things to try with your object vs your background:
Wherever you are, right now, notice your surroundings. List nine aspects of it: sights, sounds, smells, textures, etc. create a single page, nine panel establishing sequence that manages to evoke all of these qualities for the reader.Since it's a book about drawing comics, he asks for an establishing panel sequence, but the basic idea to evoke sensations with a drawing is not limited to comics. Also if your current surroundings aren't that inspiring there's no reason not to pick some other place for inspiration, as long as it's vivid.
