Story Sketch 202

In this class, you will learn to draw compelling drawings.  As a sketch story artist, you must be able to draw and express gags as well as ideas. Engaging drawings will move the plot forward in an entertaining and visual way.  Audiences can get bored easily, so it’s up to you to keep them interested! Take a look at this article for a great description of a sketch story artist job. Story artists must come up with gags and simple story situations. They usually work from a script but can also work from a story meeting.  As a story artist, you should be familiar with the art of storyboarding. You need to be fast and your drawings should be direct and bold! 

Lots of Questions!

As a sketch story artist, you must ask a lot of questions! What do the characters look like? How do they talk? move? where are they at? All these questions must be answered visually! You must draw these situations and characters in the most appealing and entertaining way. The entertaining way does not mean just funny. It means your drawings connect with the audience. It means the audience and people who view your drawings are compelled to care about the characters. Your drawings must have a great concept as well as appealing drawings. The story must be simple but sincere. As a sketch story person, you are often the first one to look at a script or hear an idea, often before even the storyboard artist!
