Today is a brainstorming and sketching day. Before you leave, you should have at least 3 different “thumbnail” sketches of your idea and have gathered at least two reference images! Think shapes and image inside of an image.
Continue to work on your 2 Masterstudies: 1 Emoji and 1 logo of your choice. Remember, you are not tracing but working alongside your reference image. Try and create using basic shapes, gradients, lower opacities, Effect > Blur, Pathfinder tool (unit or minus front), and any other tool you can think of.
If you are finished, Post your masterstudies to your blog with your reference image alongside. Tell me what shapes and effects and other tools to create your master studies.
Then, grab some sketch paper and start designing a logo for yourself or a business: https://rooseveltgraphicarts.wordpress.com/projects/logo-project/examples-of-logos/
Finish your chosen tutorial and post it to your online portfolio. Then start researching, brainstorming, and sketching for our next short project: https://rooseveltgraphicarts.wordpress.com/projects/verbicon/
You will need a gradient and/or shadow on each of your 3 Minimal posters. Try to keep both textures and gradients subtle.
Complete the Gradient Practice document found in the folder: Shared > Students > Fine Art > Lessons 6-10 > 08 Gradients. You can also watch the Gradient Tutorial below.
Make sure to watch the Texture tutorial on Opacity Masks. I have saved textures you can use in the folder: Shared > Students > Fine Art > Lessons 6-10 > Textures. Select a texture you like and Ctrl + C to copy and Ctrl + V to paste on your Minimal Poster.
Outline for Minimal Poster project:
How will you make your images minimal? Remember, use a photograph as a reference image – do not simply copy an existing minimal poster.
