Many Kinds of Lines

Types of lines

Teams compete to see how many different kinds of lines they can draw and name.

Examples: horizontal, vertical, straight, curved, dotted, dashed, fat/wide, skinny/thin, dark, light, zigzag, bumpy, colored, achromatic, gray...whatever words that work will count.  Team with the most illustrations of lines wins.

Pen and Paper Telephone

Three or more people play this pen and paper game, also known as “Gossip!” Begin with a standard 8 ½ x 11-inch sheet of paper for each player. Everyone draws a picture at the top of the paper and passes the paper to their left. Then each player captions the picture and folds it so only the sentence shows. The papers are passed again and the next player draws a picture to fit the sentence. This continues until the paper is full. The papers are unfolded to see a funny story. If you wish, you may begin by folding the papers into four or more sections – one for each player.  — from https://icebreakerideas.com/pen-and-paper-games/

Musical notation as inspiration for characters.

I imagine that this grim reaper is one of many necessary creatures that play requiems for the people who are about to pass. Their job is to help the living pass by playing a nice song. This is the first time playing the requiem for the piano player. For my animation I will have my character express loneliness and the realization of what her job really means. 

I began character design with basic shapes and then went for humanoid shapes. Towards the end I used the rest note as a shape.
