Just a reminder that all the following ought to be ready for Raghu and me in class tomorrow:
1. Every person has a 150 sketches in his/her sketchbook. Or do not come to class.
2. Everyone's comic strip is updated to the third six-panel strip and uploaded for review in class.
No excuses.

Grey Matter - Comic 2

Hi again!... okay have uploaded my redone cartoon 1 and cartoon 2!... the first cartoon still needs its text put in place... the second one which is first in the stack above uses a rewritten poem by William Henry Davies...

William Henry Davies Version
What is this life if full of care
We have no time to stand and stare?
No time to stand beneath the boughs
And stare as long as sheep, or cows.
No time to see, when woods we pass,
Where squirrels hide their nuts in grass.
No time to see, in broad daylight,
Streams full of stars, like skies at night.
No time to turn at Beauty's glance,
And watch her feet, how they can dance.
No time to wait till her mouth can
Enrich that smile her eyes began.
A poor life this, if full of care,
We have no time to stand and stare.

Arjun Version ;P
What is this life if not full of care
And all we do is stand and stare?
Stare meaningless, at the boughs
Like we were just sheep, or cows.
Cemented walls clad with glass,
Synthetic turf instead of grass.
No birds there are taking flight,
And day is just as still as night.
We stare all day at stony feet
Too scared to walk the lonely street
A poor life this, if this is all that's there
Do we really want to stand and stare?

I hoped to try and introduce the second character in a little more suttle manner than some of the directs... Comment and let me know what you think


Style Exploration - FEEDBACK!

Hi all these are the style's i explored after the feedback given to me in class... though i tried the black, i like the monotony the grey inking created and chose to try and work with that! 2 colors ... my favorite style is 7.jpg... thats the second last one here in the images above... i've followed that through.... let me know what you think.... thanks


PS - though the ink is grey in 'dark scenes' (ie with no light) the ink is black
