Green Slide Show

We played around with animations inside photoshop in order to create this slideshow. I thought this activity was fun and easy

Earth

Earth

This photo was really hard to create. We used almost all of the tools we learned so far and it was hard to work with all of those layers. Overall I think it turned out well despite all of my confusion.

Laura x8

We used all of the different filters inside Photoshop in order to make this picture. I thought that it was really cool that we could edit pictures without having to do a lot of work.

 

Retouch

For this exercise we used the patch tool, the clone tool, the healing brush, the spot healing tool, and levels. I think that this exercise could be very helpful in the future.

Colorful Cowboy

For this activity we used the dust and scratches filter, the duotone, and the color mode inside of the paintbrush

Fall Arts Preview

This vintage looking poster uses muted colors in order to create a old-timed feel. The music instruments and the flowers in the background could all be created using the pen tool inside illustrator. I believe that the ink splatters and the distressed look in the violin were created in Photoshop. This poster for the arts allows everyones artistic abilities to be represented through the use of small illustrations. Although there is a lot going on in this work, the composition overall works because the colors do not compete with one another. Because the low opacity in the items in the background and the gray color, the bright items in the foreground pop instead of compete.

Shoes

I love this fun interpretation of faces with the use of saddle shoes. This illustration could be created using the Illustrator pen tool along with strokes and small circular shapes. This artwork would be very time consuming, placing each dot in order to make the faces. Despite the shoes being quite intricate, the design is overall simple and clean. The black shoes do not compete with a colored background and instead, the viewer is allowed to focus on the faces inside the shoes.

Little Bites

This cute logo I found on Pintrest uses cutesy fonts and fun graphics for a cheerful feel. I believe that the spatula  the rolling pin, and the whisk could all be created using a mixture of the pen tool and shapes inside of Illustrator. I think that the artist changed the font by changing the rotation of each letter. This change in the fonts creates a fun composition for the viewer, allowing the logo to not seem so corporate. I think that this logo is not only cute and fun, it also gets their point across without cluttering the page with unnecessary information.

Clouds

This poster, for what I assume is a movie, depicts a calming scene using cool colors with low opacity. I think that this artwork could have been created in Photoshop to make the clouds that are shown behind the lines. The lines could have easily been created in Photoshop or Illustrator using the rectangle tool. The use of putting a screen of clouds inside the text adds for a special effect for the viewer, marrying the background with the text. The lines do not detract from the title because of their low opacity and the fact that the title is a bold black.

Playmobil

This simple ad for Playmobil brings the viewer in with the iconic Playmobil persons head. As a child I played with Playmobil so this ad is very effective for my generation because we all know what the toys heads looked like. I like the simplicity of this design and how it isn’t crowded with text that detracts from the main graphic. This hair could be created in Illustrator using the shape tool, or it could have been traced using the pen tool. The bright green background against the stark black hair emphasizes this ad.
