This is a class exercise we had in a graphic novels creative writing class at U.B.C [Canada] around 2013.
- Create/Design a character with a strength and a weakness
- Share the character with the person sitting next to you
- Your partner’s character will be your character’s opponent
- In one page, draw a fight in which your partner’s character either chooses to fight or flee from your own. Your partner will do the same.
- Determine a winner
I’m a big fan of this exercise, I was lucky enough to be partnered with my friend Johanne who designed the Nature Deer.
I felt this was a fantastic in-class project, it was easy, open ended, and we benefited from the good feeling of a finished project.
Know of any good in-class projects? Let me know!
