DDII-Illustrations…Part 2

November 9, 2012 in News/Updates, Uncategorized

It’s round 2 for Illustrations. Your self portraits turned out pretty well for your first attempts (for the most part). It’s now time to take these to the next level. You have several options for this project including redoing your original self portrait. You may also create a new illustration not based on your portrait. This illustration can be traced and enhanced, or created from scratch. Regardless of which option you choose, you will be graded heavily on IMPROVEMENT over your previous design. For instance, if you choose to redo your self portrait, include a vectored background to supplement the illustration, or spend more time on including details within the face, include the shirt you’re wearing, etc.

You will also have the OPTION to include brushes into the project in various forms (both the BLOB and the regular brush), so consider including those into your work whether it’s an accent piece, or a major part of your design.

First, look at these for ideas!
