Art - Comic Strips (courtesy of Miss Hilditch)
 
Over the next few weeks we will be studying the works of Jack Kirby, the American Comic Book artist. Developing our drawing and perspective skills to create a comic strip piece of art.
 
This week we will be looking at one point perspective. This will help us to draw the buildings and backgrounds behind our comic strip action figures. 
 
One point perspective is a drawing method that shows how things appear to get smaller as they get further away, converging towards a single ‘vanishing point’ on the horizon line. It is a way of drawing objects upon a flat piece of paper (or other drawing surface) so that they look three-dimensional and realistic.
 
Task 1
 
  • Using the video above, on a piece of paper draw a horizon line through the centre of your paper and draw squares above and below the line, using the vanishing point.

Task 2

  • Using the video above, on another piece of paper draw a street scene. You can copy the one that Kirsty completes on the video, your own street or a street from a photo.
Make sure you add as much detail as possible, trees, hedges, fences and use some colour.
