Fabulous Secrets 05 - Snapshot of Visual Style




When a student demonstrates reluctance to draw certain things, be it hands, architecture, animals, or even difficult viewing angles, I find it's useful to encourage them with a low-risk (yet content-rich) exercise. This episode's lesson invites the students to simply go for a walk with a camera and take photos of things that make them say "neat!"

We then review the photos in the classroom to discover the sophisticated visual vocabulary they already possess. Once empowered with the knowledge of their expertise, I then challenge them to demonstrate it through a group comics exercise.
