1.1 LOGO, LOGO ALTERNATE, & INSPIRATION
So for this assignment I wanted to do something with a western that incorporated a mexican aspect to it. As such the word i initially choose was DESPERADO but through my research at western style fonts i stumbled upon a few images that really inspired me. Above all this was the assignment i was most unhappy with in the end because i just have a hard time with fonts and graphic design in general.
1.2 CHARACTERS (VECTORS!!!)
I had a bit of a hard time with this assignment because i felt that it could have been done alot faster it was just done with the brush tool instead of the pen tool. i also had a hard time because i had trouble simplifying my character(s). As a result i choose to do more than one. After this assignment though i think i have a pretty good grasp of the pen tool.
1.3 BOX COVER (SMART OBJECTS)
This assignment was pretty straight forward, i would like to note that my design process was a bit backwards. I initially started out creating everything in one drawing and after it was completed i created the smart objects and painted over the seams to make it look like it was was continuous object.
UH... hyped for SPIDER-MAN (PS4) - PLEASE DONT SUE ME - haha
the reason i decided to do spider man was because i started working on this around the time game informer first announced the release date for it. Also i had just finished reading Brian Michael Bendis' Ultimate Spiderman: Peter Parker and wanted to pay homage to that character.
1.4 LINEWEIGHT, LIGHT, SHADING, BRUSHES.
I put a RED X next to examples mark drew so that you don't get confused.
Once again, this assignment was pretty straight forward. I am not perfect with my line weights as of yet but i think i am improving (compared to the assignments from term 1). For Light and Shading i wanted to try my hand at more complex shapes and i think i did a decent job at showing the shapes with only values to depict the objects. For the color blending i think i could use improvement but overall i think i did a decent job. Also i wanted to challenge myself so i tried to do something more complex (HEXAGON) but i don't think it helped convey the message. Finally Brushes, I've created brushes before so for this task i wanted to challenge myself by adding depth to the brushes and a bit more detail so hopefully the 2 brushes i created helped with that.
THAT'S ALL FOLKS!
For now i am done. Hopefully you guys at least enjoyed looking at it. I will post more as soon as i have completed another class. However that doesn't mean i wont be checking here so if you have a question feel free to ask.
