MARVEL IN YOU + COMIC RELIEF
Today will be an exercise in self-perception but with a creative twist. Each student will imagine possessing a unique superhuman strength/power and construct a fictional character of oneself based around this special possession. They will begin by constructing a brief narrative of the superhuman strength/power they possess, how they came about possessing it, how they decided to utilize it, and how that shaped them as the fictional character they are beginning to imagine themselves as, to further proceeding to detail out the physical traits of the fictional/superhuman character, their costume, accessories and so on.
Each student explored the method of surface development to make a cubed figure of the fictional character they have imagined and constructed around themselves.
The exercise is in continuity from Day 4, students have to work on constructing an environment/backdrop/setting to bring their fictional characters to life and narrate a story. Explorations should be imaginative, creative, and ambitious. They will begin by constructing a model around their fictional character to give it a static setting and then continue in groups of three to narrate a collective story of their characters by exploring the medium of comic narrations we see in comic books.
