Emoji Positing & Semester Test Practice

Good Morning! If you still need to finish details on your emoji or finish posting to your blog, you can use today to do so (Your Blog >Emoji Post). Remember to post both your Master Studies/Tutorial along with your original Emoji Designs. These will be due May 5th. 

Today we will be practicing for our Geometric/Low poly design. Find a simplistic photograph of a food item, animal, or object. Follow the directions below and start brainstorming subject matter for your Semester Test Project: Geometric/Low Poly Image while you practice.

Directions: Set your fill to none and stroke to white and .25 weight. Start creating triangles with your pen tool that connect at the edges. Make your triangle sides overlap so you are not adjusting so much at the end. You choose the size of the triangles/shapes. You can choose to fill as you go or just keep a stroke color and fill later on.




Happy Wednesday!

Finish working on either your 2 emoji masterstudies or a tutorial of your choice. We will be posting these to our blogs. When you finish, you may begin gathering reference images for your own 2 created emojis. Your finished emojis should have a highlight and shadow area and/or a gradient and visually “fit” with existing emojis. Do not copy an existing icon/emoji.

Your Emojis might include a drop shadow (Effect > Stylize > Drop > Shadow) or a stroke color. You might use the ellipse/rectangle tool, gradient, pathfinder tool (Window > Pathfinder), Eraser tool, various effects (Effect > Warp, etc.), Reflect (Object > Transform > Reflect), eyedropper tool.
