The making of a villain

On Day 4 of my camp at CBIS international school in Seoul, we turned our attention back towards characters, but this time we focused on villains. After taking my diabolical villain personality quiz, we examined some of our favorite villains from books and film, including Voldemort, Cruella de Vil, Jadis, and Darth Vader.

I also showed the kids some of the early artwork that went into the genesis of my favourite villain from Kendra Kandlestar: Agent Leerlin Lurk.

Agent Lurk.
This was a really great way to discuss the perspective of a villain and how the best-designed villains have clear motivation and a specific diabolical plan.

Then the kids set about designing their own heinous antagonists. Here’s a few snapshots of their work . . .
