Design Day “Say it with style”

by Adrian on October 30, 2014

Today was design day and we learned about our new summative assessment, creating comic on the book we are going to read. We were told to use the Adobe illustrator CC, but most of our adobe illustrator would not work. The illustrator is different from photoshop because photoshop uses pixels and illustrator uses vectors. I think that vectors are much better than pixels because it is much more high definition.  However I learnt that pixels would work better with photos and vectors are better with logos and others.

We also started a practice on  the adobe illustrator, we learnt about drawing lines. I thought that this was pretty hard because it was difficult to bend the lines on most of the lines. My computer would not work because i need to sign in but the guys fixing it was not here today. To catch up with the work, I looked at my friends, so i would know how to use it when it comes to the assuagement. Every single time we had a design cycle project, there is always a technology problem. This is getting annoying because it will really make you be hide and at the last minute you would have tons of work to do.

Not only learning about the adobe stuff, we also learnt about Gantt Charts. I understand how the chart works, but i don’t really like how it is pretty unorganised. Me and my groups start gantt chart assessment and chose task 2. When planning we had many different arguments about which stuff are appropriate to put down. As a conclusion taking us a long time to finish the easy task. I thought that including every little detail is the best ideal because there is always the chance for forgetting to do it.

Art Work (3 value sketches)

June 3, 2014

Picture 1: In this picture, I drew a monkey for my texture picture and I think that the eyes and the mouth is a little weird. I think next time I should make the mouth a little smaller so that it would be in proportion. Picture 2: The second picture I drew was the original […]
