Goodbye Raymond Briggs
What is childhood without magical snowfriends that come to life and take you sailing across wintry night skies? I love The Snowman Story and share it with my k-5 students as often as I can. I created many connected lessons that have brought so much joy to my students including the following which I have packaged up for you to explore in honor of Raymond Briggs' passing.
Veggie Monster Resources (Bundled)
Students will be relaxing to the warm digital glow of a fireplace playing on the art room screen as they follow a drawing guide for creating The Grinch from Dr. Seuss' book, The Grinch Who Stole Christmas. Then they will see the book cover come to life with augmented reality. This will also juxtapose the two depictions of the Grinch as you see above. The animated Grinch is green with simplified textures and the illustration on the book cover is white with fine black lines of texture to show his fur.
The Sneetches comes to life using the EyeJack app after the effect is loaded by scanning the QR code.
This animation was made by
1. making out the character using Brushes Redux
2. Tracing the character in Do Ink Drawing app
3. Copying it multiple times and redrawing arms and legs in different poses to create a walking sequence
4. Then I used Do Ink composition mode to combine the masked photo and walking animation with a path.
5. I duplicated/flipped it to make it walk back.
This movie became the overlay and the original cover was the trigger in Eyejack app.
