You all know how effective environment and acting can be in storytelling, but have you noticed that most characters just seem to wear plain old jeans and t-shirts? Is that not boring?
This workshop will provide a basic knowledge of the costume design process from starting with the silhouette to the psychology behind colour, style and period choices.
It instructs you on how to apply costuming to your comics process which will further emphasise a character’s aesthetic qualities and enhance their role in the story,making your worlds a little more believable.
Join Luke Kemp-James on 10th February at Haymans Hall room 110 at 11am to learn about Costume as character.

Graduate Student Timothy Taylor Presents:
Saturday January 14, 11:00AM – 12:00PM
Hayman’s Hall, Room 213
Do you ever find yourself torn between trying to get visual ideas drawn while trying to write a script? You are not alone! As comic creators, getting ideas down visually and verbally is important. With visual scripting techniques, you will learn methods for writing scripts while thumbnailing your pages at the same time!
You will look at scripts with drawings on them, thumbnails with written notes and examples of both being done at the same time. You’ll learn about the importance of shorthand and notation and the importance of getting to know what you can draw quickly and what you may need to write.
• Students will become familiar with visual scripting techniques
• Students will create a one-page story thumnailed and written using visual scripting techniques and Rory’s Story Cubes.
