Tonight, Sarah Noonan gave a presentation on facial expressions in comics, detailing how comic artists effectively convey emotions, moods, and attitudes through lines, furrows, wrinkles and other features on characters’ faces. Then, club members were given handouts with 25 blank boxes, where each box had an emotion printed beneath it. Each member drew a face in each box corresponding to the emotion under it. Then, members shared their work with each other.

Tonight, Gerardo gave a presentation on the history of webcomics. This brief presentation covered the three main “generations” of webcomics, and offered numerous examples of different kinds of comics. It was based on the presentation Joy Kim gave about two years ago, with some extra additions and commentary. There was no club activity following the presentation, so the club went out to dinner a little earlier instead!

Tonight, Win L. did a presentation on Perspective. He began with a brief PowerPoint presentation, then proceeded to demonstrate how to draw 1, 2, 3, and 4-point perspective illustrations on the chalkboard.
Win demonstrates how to draw telephone poles with proper perspective.
And here’s a random drawing from Yuji…
Win draws a four-point perspective illustration on the board. I think he tried to draw the GNS meeting room here…
Win brought a T-square to make sure the lines he drew on the board were straight.
Club presenters like Win often give PowerPoint presentations while sitting.
