RST Part 1 - Cartooning

 During Part 1 of the RST there will be absolutely no talking.

Leave your phones with your teacher. You are not permitted to have them with you during the RST.

All of the characters produced in this section will be used in your final cartoon, so make sure you have an idea with a common theme.

Assignment 1 - Using the visual cues provided, recreate the cartoon character Sammy.

Assignment 2 - Explore each of the following three websites to learn how to draw cartoon animals:

Drawing Coach (Easy Level 3, Medium Level 4)
How to Draw Cartoons (Beginner Level 3, Intermediate Level 4)
Funny Cartoons (No Levels)

Draw 3 different animals, one from each site. Your assessment will be based on the effort you demonstrate, and the complexity of the animal you choose.

Assignment 3 -Explore the following website to show how to draw Cartoon People:

Cartoon People (Easy Level 3, Medium Level 4)

Draw 2 cartoon people from the site.

In the assignments below make sure you demonstrate learned techniques.

Assignment 4 - Create your own animal based character. This should take the form of a mythical creature, an animal we have never heard of, or an alien life form. Again, be as detailed as you can. Give your character a name and post it to your website.

Assignment 5- Create your own human-based cartoon character and give him/her a name. Pay attention to detail. Give your character a name and post it to your website.
