Lessons Plan

Lesson 1 - Blocking and shapes
Try to block out their sketches to find ways to make the silhouette unique and blocking in shadows to create contrasts in the sketches.

Lesson 2 - Colors and shades
Start coloring the pieces to see what colors and tones go well with the character and see how they can benefit the creation and also the meaning of the drawings.

Lesson 3 - First pass
We do our first mock up of what we think the character is and how we portray them.
After this we revisit all of the sketches done and see which ones we like or that would have been better suited now that we have explored the possibilities of who or what this character is.
This class focuses on making the main thumbnail piece and seeing if they would be any changes or improvements to be done.

Lesson 4 - Corrections and exploration
We see what of the thumbnail could be improved and how the character can be portrait in a different view that might be more interesting or create more views of the character.

Lesson 5 - Poses and final piece
This lesson will be the final lesson and will be made to create the final character sheet with a combination of new and old drawings to show the progression of how this character has been developed and the final product with colors and strong final art pieces.
