COMPOSITION:

For these drawings, the first thing I want the viewer to see is the object as a whole. After being able to recognize what the object is, the viewer will notice the individual lines, or strokes, and the directions they are in. Some of the drawings contain strokes going in different directions to better represent the true shape of the object while others only contain one direction of line.

Line DrawingsCRAFT: CONCEPT:I used a Bamboo tablet and pen to draw these images within Adobe Illustrator. Using the brush tool in Illustrator, I used different size brush strokes with different directions of line to create different objects with only 100 strokes. To create the images, the pen and tablet are used like a piece of paper and pencil, creating every stroke that makes up the image in Illustrator. At this point, the only message I am trying to communicate is the object itself. The goal of the assignment was to create five objects that hold liquid, like a bottle or cup.

Al e Value DrawingsCRAFT:Thies drawings are created the same way as the previous drawings were-using the brush tool in Adobe Illustrator, and drawing with the Bamboo tablet and pen. Different size brush strokes were used to create different thicknesses in the values of the grayscale. To create the images, the pen and tablet are used like a piece of paper and pencil, creating every stroke that makes up the image in Illustrator.

COMPOSITION:

I was focused on creating an object appear three dimensional by only using different values of black. The darker values created the shadows of the object, while the lights made the highlights. The object should be the first thing the viewer sees, while the different values within the object should be noticed second.

CONCEPT:

In these drawings I am trying to communicate the object itself, but only using different values. For this assignment, I created five cups and bowls, only using value.

color DrawingsCRAFT:These color drawings were completed using the brush tool in Adobe Illustrator and the Bamboo pen and tablet. With the brush tool, I chose a hue and created at least five different values to use for the object. Using the different values, I drew the object, using the different values to capture the darks and lights on the actual object.

COMPOSITION:

For these drawings, I really wanted the highlights, or the spots on the object that reflected the most light (the brightest), to be the part of the object that draws the viewers eye. From there, the contrast of the lights and the darks will pull the viewers eye around to the rest of the object, seeing the different values that compose the entire object.

CONCEPT:

Again, my main focus for the color drawings was to realistically create the object. For these drawings, I used a glass vase, a foam soap dispenser, and a large push pin.

texture DrawingsThe entire object is composed of different brush stroke sizes and different sized numbers.10Blue Suede Shoes

CRAFT:

Just like the past drawings, these three texture drawings were completed using the brush tool in Adobe Illustrator and the Bamboo pen and tablet. With the brush tool, I first created a background layer of one number, consisting of three different values of the same hue. Then using the same number as was in the background, I then chose a different hue and created at least five different values to use for the main object. Using the different values, I then created an object, but instead of using straight lines, the entire object is composed of different brush stroke sizes and different sized numbers.

COMPOSITION: CONCEPT:

For all three drawings, I wanted the viewer to see the whole object first, then the background made up of a certain number. The last thing I want the viewer to see is that the object itself is made up of the same number used in the background. In these drawings, I was trying to communicate the object as a whole and have the viewer think about whether or not the texture and the numbers created goes with the actual texture of the object. These three texture drawings are of a glass vase, a lightbulb, and a foam soap dispenser.

Shape DrawingI built my image up from the back, forward by layering every shape on top of one another.16Blue Suede Shoes

CRAFT:

This week we began using a different tool in Adobe Illustrator. Up to this point we had been using only the brush tool to create different objects, but this week we were introduced to the pen tool. The pen tool might sound like it functions similarly to the brush tool, but in actuality, it is quite different. The pen tool allows you to create more controlled shapes, either by plotting multiple points (done by clicking where ever you want a point to be) or by clicking and dragging, which creates a smooth curved line. The pen tool gives the user an endless array of lines to use to create whatever it is you want. To create my image I chose, I started with the part of the picture that was farthest back. Once I had determined which part of my image was underneath everything else, I started there and I created every shape that was created on the original image by the differences in hues. In other words, I built my image up from the back, forward by layering every shape on top of one another, allowing them to overlap and come together to create the entire image. Not long after I started, I noticed that the shapes added up very quickly and was beginning to become hard to keep track of what each individual shape was. To fix this problem, I organized the shapes into groups, or layers, and labeled each one so they were easily identifiable.

CONCEPT:

Through this image, I am mainly trying to communicate what the image is actually of. Just like this is the first time Ive used the pen tool in this class, this is also the first time I have another point I would like to communicate with the viewer. Up until this point, I havent had an opportunity to chose something that interested me or was a part of me. I chose Elvis because he is one of my favorite singers of all time, and I want to communicate that through my image as well as allowing the viewer to recognize who my image is of. Obviously, in order for the viewer to understand that Elvis is important to me, I must be successful in communicating who is the subject of my image.

COMPOSITION:

For this particular image, I wanted to create a realistic version of the original photograph, so I simply duplicated the photograph. Because I wanted my finished product to look as similar as possible, I did not rearrange the elements. I left everything the way it was in the original picture. The first part of the image I created that I want the viewer to see is the guitar. This is because of the particular photo I chose. Most of the image is composed of darker hues, except for the flesh and the guitar. However, because the guitar has more intense, or saturated, hues within it, that is where my eyes go first on the original picture; thats where I wanted them to go for my image. From the guitar, the microphone guides the eye up to Elvis face. Kelli Shaffer

shape revisionCRAFT:To revise this image, I used the original image I created of Elvis Presley using the pen tool in Adobe Illustrator. To create the changes I made, I played around with the gradient menu and tool, as well as the gaussian blur effect. By changing the sharpness of the edges and creating a smoother transition from one shade to the next, it made my image look a little more realistic version of the original photograph I used. While I got the guitar to appear to have a smoother finish to it, it took a lot of trial and error to get to that point. When I used the gaussian blur effect, in order to create the look of a smooth transition, the entire guitar looked out of focus. I tried the blur with different radius lengths, but still could not come up with a satisfactory look using the gaussian blur effect. I then tried the gradient tool to achieve the smooth transition on the guitar. Despite the irregular shape of the guitar, I was able to come up with a fairly decent gradient setting that smoothed the transition enough, and cover the majority of the guitar.
