In the very popular TCPS After School Course, Digital Discovery, students in grades 2 to 6 have had a great time this winter creating custom comic book covers.
Instructed by TCPS Computer studies teacher, Mr. Leofanti, participants used Adobe Fuse which is a program used to design 3D models to create their superhero. The students created an image plane to design a superhero in their image. After they had designed every aspect of their hero including facial structure, eye and hair colour, and body type, they loaded the character into Adobe Mixamo and used it to auto-rig the character. Once it was rigged the students animated their character. They then created a comic book cover in Adobe Photoshop and inserted their superhero. This was a great learning experience for the students and an exciting project. Below are some samples of the student’s work. Well done!
