    • ACTIVITY nº 1 Observe the following Corkscrew, can you think of a comic character? 17
    • Design a character based on the corkscrew. Personificate the object (give it human characteristics). It is important to work on previous sketches. Create a short six-frame comic strip based on this character 18
    •   ACTIVITY nº 2  Design using simple shapes a cartoon character. This character can be a person or an animal. Remember to use exaggeration, as in a caricature. Describe his/her clothes and complements and draw a few positions and expressions. 19

    • ACTIVITY Nº 3 Draw a short six-frame comic strip. Frame 1- Design using simple shapes a cartoon character, face, neck and shoulders only, with ears. This character can be a person or an animal. Remember to use exaggeration, as in a caricature. Frame 2- A repeat of the first box, with the addition of an insect, who has flown into the box. Use lines to show the motion of the flying. Frame 3- Repeat the image, only here the insect flies into the character’s ear, and the expression on the face of the character changes appropiately. 21
    • Frame 4- The character’s face should get more upset with lines and symbols showing the upset around his/her face. Frame 5- The insect exits the other ear, and the facial expression of the character should change again. Frame 6- Shows the insect gone and the character feeling… relief, joy, whatever you want, with a dialogue balloon overhead to write and appropiate “whew!!!” or other suitable words. Finally go over the pencil lines with a fine black marker, and add color with colored pencils. 22
