Finish Lessons: They can be found in the Shared > Students> Fine Art > Lessons 6-10. You will need to complete 08 Gradients, 09 Compound shapes (The exercises are finished, so work along side the shapes), and 9.2 Key.
If you are finished with your posters, have posted your project on your blog and completed the lessons, you may work on an independent project, create another minimal movie poster, try some of the tutorials on the post below, and/or start thinking of ideas for our next project we will start Monday: Emoji/Emoticon Set.
If you are finished with your Minimal Posters (3) and you have uploaded them to your blog, you may: Design another, work on an independent project, or browse through and choose a tutorial to learn:
Today is a workday on your Minimal Movie Poster. Your Vector Portrait will be due next Tuesday.
For this project, you will design three Minimal Posters (Movie, TV show, and/or Book) by creating a simplistic image that could serve as an icon for your chosen subject.
Brainstorm main characters, colors, key scenes, your favorite scenes, objects, or outfits from that movie. Perhaps they would be things you would have to see the movie to understand. File > Place images you find that can help make your design strong.
As you work, take a look at the examples for inspiration. Usually the background is a solid color. If a poster already exists and you still want to do that movie, select different images to use – do not copy!
Think about having an interesting viewpoint and not showing the “whole” picture.
Last Workday on our Graphic Self-Portraits. If you are finished, follow the steps to complete upload your project to your blog (Your Blog > Vector Portrait Post)
We will start our second Illustrator Project, Minimal Movie Poster, on Tuesday. If you are finished, you may work on your independent project and brainstorming/researching for our next project.
Today will be a workday on our vector self-portraits. We will begin posting our projects onto our blogs tomorrow.
If you are finished (highlights, shadows, details, and background), you may begin your independent project. This is a project(s) you can continue to work on when you finish early. You may draw on illustrator/import a image to recreate. If you want to build on your Illustrator skills, this link takes you to some great tutorials.
