Task 2

Art - Japanese Art

In Japan, many people (young and old) enjoy manga (comic book stories) and anime (cartoons). Show some examples of manga art (e.g. Naruto, Pokémon). In Japan, manga and anime are not just about superheroes, but can be about all sort of subjects: real or imaginary, supernatural or ordinary, old or young characters.

Look at the Manga characters – see attachment.

What do you notice about the way these human characters are drawn?

Note that human characters in manga/anime often have stylised faces (big eyes!) but their bodies are usually quite realistic. Draw human bodies accurately is a real skill. Sketch a person roughly, with limbs the wrong sizes, head too big, joints in wrong places.

What is wrong with this sketch? How can we improve it?

What is meant by proportion?  Proportion is where objects or their parts are the correct size in relation to each other.

Activity

Start off sketching a person using basic shapes – practise but do not add detail (e.g. hair clothes) until they are correctly proportioned and joints are in the right places.

You could develop their sketches further by: drawing different action poses/expressions; using an exaggerated manga style (e.g. big eyes); costumes; turn the human figure into a humanoid robot, alien etc.

Enjoy J

Earthquake sends out energy in a wave. The huge amount of energy released by an earthquake can also lead to other geological events – we call these natural disasters…

Avalanches:  "Avalanche - Stjerny, Norway" (watch without sound!)

Tsunamis:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=foxww-tMoNg   Japan 2011 (mostly mute anyway)
