A few years ago I created a Comic Book Club for the students. They range in age from grade 3 – 5 with a large variety of skills. Prior to the club I taught them how to draw three-dimensional objects and characters but this year they wanted something different.

The premise of the club was to teach the students the basics of comic book drawing. Yet due to the amount of work involved in drawing a comic book, I tried to keep the characters a bit simpler than I am use to and I standardized the characters for them. They wanted a super hero comic therefore I drew a lot of different characters they could choose from. They liked that idea but they also had to choose up to 2 powers, a unique name and if they were either a hero or villain for their character.

Page two is where we see the Legion of Doom plan is revealed. It was a hook for the students and this page was their first glimpse at a few of the characters they would be drawing. I also helped them by providing pages with empty cells for them to draw in the story. I hope you enjoy page 2 of “The Rise of Lord Ominous” as much as the students did.

Page ten, the final page of the comic book. Finally the students and the readers get to meet the new leader of the Legion of Doom. The students asked, “Who does this character represent?” You see the students created their character to represent themselves. They wanted to be their character. I thought this was a great way for them to get into drawing these characters because it is something very personal to each of them. I told them that this character is mine. The leader of the “bad guys” is me. They loved that idea and interestingly every comic book and character drawing class after this one, I used this character to represent me in the group. You may have seen this character from another drawing club I did with a group of students, entitled Heroes vs. Villains.  

I hope you enjoy page 10 of The Rise of Lord Ominous” as much as the students did.

On page ninth The League of Justice have arrived to put an end to the Legion of Doom’s plan, except they find that they are too late. At last, the new leader of the Legion of Doom is born and makes an entrance.   Many of the students asked why don’t they see the new leader. I told them this build suspense for the audience and for all of you. Also what he has to say will set the tone for what kind of leader, and Arch enemy for The League of Justice, he will be. I hope you enjoy page 9 of “The Rise of Lord Ominous” as much as the students did.

On page eight we see Dr. Mindbender ready to put his plan of fusing the DNA into one person. With the students we drew each cell and the biggest question was what are those tubes in the background. I told them that those are the DNA solutions from each of the heroes and villains. I reminded them that they could see the tubes in the background on pages 2 and 3. The challenge for the students was the action pose of the character Angel.  They were use to drawing the characters more in a standing power pose but once I showed them to draw the bones of the character they quickly drew the rest. I hope you enjoy page 8 of “The Rise of Lord Ominous” as much as the students did.

On page seven we finish off with the last members of the League of Justice, their name and abilities. This gives each student, who wanted to be a hero, the opportunity to see their character and how to draw it. This also gives the other students practice on how to draw these characters and in turn their own. I hope you enjoy page 7 of “The Rise of Lord Ominous” as much as the students did.

Art Inspiration: Comic Book: Page 4 – My 500th Post


 

It seems fitting that my 500th post would about art and an activity I did with the students. People say I inspire them with my art, stories, life experiences and joy of life. In fact they are the ones that inspire me to do those things. Therefore, with this in mind I started this blog with my one guiding principle, to post …

My innermost thoughts I wish to share. These things Inspire me, maybe they will inspire you.

After 500 posts this principle continues to be my centre. So, onto my 500th post …

Page four is where we begin to see the different members of the League of Justice, each character’s name and abilities. This way each student, who wanted to be a hero, can see their character and how to draw it but it. This also gives the other students practice on how to draw these characters. I hope you enjoy page 4 of “The Rise of Lord Ominous” as much as the students did.
