Thinkering Studio Project Proposal

See it, Draw It
Adam S.
To get better at drawing and to look as close as possible to real professional graphic novels.
Challenge Starters & Examples
I expect to learn how to draw comic book characters better. I've tried in the past and it just doesn't turn out well
I will be challenged to extend my knowledge on drawing
How will this stretch you? This will stretch my knowledge of drawing (Look at the Thinkering Studio Rubric for some ideas.)
List your materials/resources and who will be providing them. If they need to be purchased, include the price.
Main Steps:
  • Watch videos or read books to understand the basic fundamentals
  • I can see the similarities between the two and see how well it turned out
  • Which inquiry or design process steps did you include?(Or the Creative Learning Spiral) I have to observe the drawer on YouTube or the ideas in the book and make a prototype drawing, then finally make a final drawing
A quarter perhaps two. If I really get into it it'll take three to all four.
What parts of this project might be difficult? How do you expect to handle them? The parts I'll find difficult are drawing faces that will actually look real. i can work extra on drawing faces to improve my skills in that department.
How might your project fail? (Conduct a pre-mortem) My project could fail if I'm not gaining any experience or learning anything new on this project.
Sharing/Teaching/Paying It Forward
  • How will you share what you have learned/created/made/produced with others? I could show it to people in school, my family, and my friends outside of my school.
  • Who is your target audience? People intrested in Graphic Novels filled with action
How will you/your group define the projects success? How will you know that your “good” is “good enough”? Success is defined off the quality of the final product, the drawing
How should we evaluate your success? through the quality of the drawing
How will that be "visible" to others? (Demonstrate) Can your progress be measured throughout the project? it will be compared to other drawings to show similarity and good parts of the drawings that have been well done.
(Look at the Thinkering Studio Rubric for some ideas or possibly Rubistar.)
“What are you making?” “Why are you making this?” and “Who is it for?” I am making this because it is something that I enjoy and the product is even better to look at and know that I made that drawing.
