Grade 9 Design Day

Today we have been introduced to the design project- to interpret a scene from the Empire of the Sun for peers that should be visually appealing using graphic novels conventions we have learnt through the unit. We need to complete this assignment digitally. I was completely freaking out at the beginning when the task was assigned as I am terrible at drawing and also I have never drawn digitally using Illustrator. Through the day, I have learnt how to use Evernote to took notes though I still find Google drive better and also some basic skills of using Adobe Illustrator, for example drawing straight and curl lines and tracing. I find the tracing function the most useful as it saves time drawing and make it easier to create different characters. We had some templates to practice, below are the screenshots of few of the exercises.

Also, I have completed three tasks on criteria A. We created a table and mindmap of  what I already know, what I need to know, and the required knowledge of this project.Screen Shot 2015-11-02 at 10.57.04 am

Overall, I have spent my time productively as I managed to complete most of the tasks at school and it gives me a better understanding of project .
