Hello Class, this next project is about using one of illustrators great tools. It's ability to create graphics out of vectors! We will mainly be working with the Pen Tool (P) and the Eyedropper Tool (I) for this project. This project is to help you prepare for you next project which is to create your own logo for your company. It is also helpful to see how graphic shapes can be used to create a three dimensional form.
Hello Class, I've uploaded a tutorial for our next project. We will be creating a 3D Illusion out of two separate images. By using an image of cellphone, computer screen, or any handheld device, you will attempt to create an image where something is coming out of the screen. Please check out the example to see what I'm talking about. The goal of this project is to improve your ability to create images that are convincing and make the illusions seem realistic. Be sure to make sure to keep your edges clean and consider that your fist try might not be the best solution. Always be willing to change for the sake of a good image. The image that is popping out of the phone can be anything you choose. I prefer to use animal imagery since it's easy to get a hold of and can be very clear. Be sure that your images are of high quality. You are welcome to take your own photos for this project
The 2.5 Parallax Effect
For this project we will be creating a moving, still image... I know it sounds strange, but that's the idea, and as you can see from the image above, it creates a pretty cool effect. The goal of this project is to create a seamless illusion of movement between the foreground and background of an image. You will need to create, find, or take your own image for this project. Be sure that the image has a clear distinction between the foreground and background. Remember there needs to be two elements moving towards each other for this effect to work.
Hello Class, I've uploaded a tutorial for our next project. We will be creating a double exposure of an animal and an environment. The animal can be any of your choosing, but I would like for you to think of your first one as a demo. You will be creating 3 different animal images using this technique. I have listed out the steps to help you out in a pdf. Please click it and follow along.
Hello Class, below is a video that you are required to watch outside of class. The video has been split into two sections because of its size, but you should watch both parts. Be sure to take notes on what processes are being used and to try them the next time we are in class. I will review with you on Thursday and see if you can use the tools from the video.
