Ms. Leursen Hates You


My next animation I'm releasing is going to be Funny School Things Redux, and it contains one of my all time favorite characters: Ms. Leursen. She is based off a teacher I had in 9th grade that was insane to no end. This is a pencil drawing that I scanned in and colored in photoshop. Also, watch Funny School Things Redux and Funny School Things 2 to check out Ms. Leursen in action!

Well, she's angry.

I wonder what she has seen to deserve a reaction quite like this? Being a school teacher, she probably had enough, when the kids fed the class pet frog to the chickens, or something like that. Of course, it could be the case that it's something innocuous, like the third child that morning who has accused the dog or eating the homework, so she has just hit TILT and exploded.

A decent level of detail, with furrowed eyebrows and a lot of creases across the dress. I'm glad that you told us that the subject was a female, as there is no body shape to indicate one way or the other and curly hair could apply to either gender.

I'd like to see a little more in the way of background - perhaps a school scene, that is faded out, as the red mist has descended with this image of a hastily roller-coated rouge over the background. It could give a more devastating effect.

This teacher was quite insane. It was probably somewhere between ghetto fights nearly starting in her class, students mocking her voice and mispronunciation, students not knowing the bible (she was very unhappy about this), students threatening to say something about her constant bible thumping, me secretly posting pictures of Jesus and God from south park around her classroom, me drawing a turtle being stabbed for one of her assignments (she wanted an animal from the Life of Pi, so I gave her one), and plain insanity that led to her anger.
And yeah, I gave no good hint as to what her gender was, it's a very odd caricature I drew of her back when I had her class.
I totally agree that I left something to be desired with the background. Doing maybe the same thing with the red mist, but including a faded or fading school background would have produced a nice effect.
Thank you for the review! =)

You don't hate us...you only hate yourself.

Aqlex responds:

I have a feeling that holds very true for this teacher.
