Today we will continue watching The Cat Returns.
If you do NOT know how to draw anime at all come near the whiteboard at this time.
Since you all demonstrated that you do not know how to act in a classroom last time...
Rules of the Room:
1. DO NOT run around the classroom.
2. This is NOT a playground or your room.
3. There will be NO yelling or screaming.
4. Please RESPECT eachother.
5. NO innapproperiate language.
6. NO harmful or unwanted physical contact.
BREAKING THESE RULES CAN RESULT IN harm towards you, harm towards others, or YOU GETTING EXPELLED.
Creating a Manga:
1. Writing (If you would like to plan before drawing.)
Write in outline form.
Make sure you are organized, clear, and make the outline easy to follow.
"Budget yourself out" Ex. "By page 11 I want this to have happened."
Break point- make it like a cliff hanger. This may occur at the end of a chapter, episode, or volume.
2. Manga Pages
Roughed lay out (Panels)
Your reader should be able to get the gist of what is happening even without words.
What do you think is happening here?
3. Action Formula
Introduce your characters and conflict near the beginning.
Characters try to overcome the conflict.
Set backs occur.
Characters overcome conflict.
The character usually has some kind of flaw (a flaw could be that they are perfect).
They try to overcome the flaw.
Set backs occur- the character looses confidence.
Over comes flaw- they gain confidence back.
