Students were then to choose 20 of their favorite sketches to enlarge to about 4 by 5, creating a row of about 4 monsters at the bottom of their 12 by 18 inch paper.
As they finished a row, the monsters were staggered and positioned behind the previous row so that it would look like a group photo. Each paper would have at least 20 creatures to fill the space. Some classes were also allowed to look up characters on their iPads as inspiration.
Students then chose to use colored pencils, markers, and/or pencil to finish. We talked about how to shade with a marker that was drying up and how to create texture also.
When finished with this assignment, students either made a felt creature or a cardboard robot inspired from their drawings. You can see these here and here.
