Today was a project day and I painted a portrait of ariel from the little mermaid.
I added some different skin tones:
Then I colored everything:
Today I started assignment 5 of lesson 7 of the Non-Designer’s Design Book. For this assignment I had to create a letterhead for the business Frillio’s Pizza.
I started by opening a 8.5 x 11 in document. Then I added one of the logos for frilios pizza to the corner of the page.
Then I went to google and found a checkered background. i duplicated it and made it go across the top of the page like a border:
Then I used the elliptical marquee tool to make an oval. I used the paint bucket tool to color the oval red. I moved that layer behind the logo and border layers. I duplicated the layer 10 times and spread it out so that it fit under the checkered border.
Then I added a red line to the bottom of the page and added their slogan:
Then I added the rest of the information and a little pizza clipart to separate them:
I added another logo to the right corner and put some black lines underneath and I also made the informations text a little bigger:
Today I continued with lesson 7 of the Non-Designer’s Design Book.
I finished assignment 3 and 4.
Finished Business Card:
I started with a brick wall background clipart and I duplicated it twice so that it would cover the entire card.
I added the Logo:
I used the rectangular marquee tool to make 3 rectangles at the bottom of the card then used the paint bucket tool to paint them using the color scheme I chose in assignment 3:
Then I used a few of the fonts I chose to type the information:
Today I stated assignment 1 of lesson 7 of the Non-Designer’s Design Book. For this lesson I read pages 87-120. For Assignment 2 I had to plan what typefaces Im going to use for the rest of the assignments in lesson 7. After I chose the fonts, I sent an email to my instructor showing her the name and a sample of what fonts I chose:
Today I completed Lesson 6 of the Non- Designer’s Design Book.
I finished reading pages 79-86.
After that I sent my instructor an email of the Little Quiz #1.
Little Quiz #2:
The original ad had almost every word in all caps. The original add also used way too many fonts and nothing was aligned properly. I center aligned everything and placed the information that related in close proximity so that there are several different groups of information. I copy and pasted the tile images from the original ad onto mine but moved them to go with the names of the different tiles on display.
Today I continued working on assignment 3 of lesson 5 of the Non-designer’s Design Book. This involved editing the flyer I made so that it follows the principles of contrast.
What I finished last week:
I put the new logo that I designed for the contrast business card and letterhead into the diamond in the middle. I used the fonts and colors from that logo on the rest of the information on the flyer. I also added a purple outline to the photos and the middle square. I did that using the rectangular marquee tool and the paint bucket tool.
Today was a project day and I started a new painting using the tablet. I decided I wanted to paint a girl with her face painted like a sugar skull.
I started drawing the face and ended up with this:
After that I stated working on the hair and makeup:
Then I changed the color of the hair:
After that I selected half of her face and pasted it to a new document:
I colored the whole background black:
Then I painted a blue rose:
I duplicated it a few times and resized and rotated the duplicates and thats it:
Today I continued working on lesson 5 assignment 3. I worked on the letterhead. The point was to follow the principles of contrast.
This design matches the business card I did yesterday.
I had to resize a move a few things around. I duplicated the stripes then resized them and put them so that they frame the letter. Then I lowered the opacity of the stripes a little. After that I spent time looking for what else I wanted to add to it but I couldn’t come up with anything.
When I finished, I started editing on the flyer. This is what I have so far:
I used a gradient for the back ground. I used the colors white black and blue to match the new news letter and business card that I made following the principles of contrast.
