4 Panels, 4 Scenes Assignment
Create a narrative sequence in just 4 panels with a different scene in each panel. The actions, thoughts and emotions of your characters should be communicating clearly without using any words. Think about the different types of panel-to-panel transitions covered in chapter 3 and pay close attention to the type or types you choose for your sequence.
Read pages 70-72 of Chapter 3 for definitions of the different types of panel transitions. The definition for scene-to-scene is in there. It would be super-awesome, however, if you read Chapter 2 AND Chapter 3 since you have a long weekend.
