Class 1 Assignment
Use Adobe Draw to design a character. Sketch out different options and experiment with colour, line and shape. This is not the final design, but simply a way of generating ideas through sketching. Whether you're a total novice or the next Da Vinci, drawing is a great way to start and share ideas, and Adobe Draw is a great tool for prototyping your idea before building your character properly in Adobe Photoshop or Illustrator. Once you’ve had the opportunity to plan, it's time to create a simple character in Photoshop or Illustrator using one of the templates in the app as a starting point. Record your character using Character Animator, export the video file and upload it to your preferred video hosting site. Then share the URL along with your Class 1 learning journal.
Class 2 Assignment
Create your own animated character and record a short animated sequence (30 Seconds maximum). Export the video file and upload it to your preferred video hosting site, then share the URL along with your Class 2 learning journal. For this assignment you could use Illustrator Draw to start designing your character, or simply jump straight into Character Animator and build from scratch.
