While I had a lot of fun making this movie with my friends, I genuinely hated this assignment. The project was to create an ad or trailer for a movie or object. I hate being on camera at all times, so I was really frustrated with this assignment. I feel as though the concept was good and the outcome was generally okay, but I’d be happy never being in front of a camera ever again.
For this project, we were asked to create a brand new album cover for our favorite band using photoshop. This was one of the first times I’ve used photoshop to create an illustration, and I think it was very successful. I had tons of fun making this album cover and I’m still very proud to have it as a portfolio piece.
The assignment here was to create an icon for a new app idea that we had. I chose to create a fashion app, where the user could buy and sell clothes, as well as post photos of outfits to be rated and commented on by other users. Of course, I chose to do a vector drawing of a fabulous high heeled shoe, as I felt that it would exemplify the type of attitude and personality this app was designed to draw in. I played around with multiple color schemes but ended up choosing one with complimentary pastel colors, Because I thought they played better with the shape and style of the shoe.
I had so much fun with this assignment. It was the first time I had ever used Illustrator before in my life. The assignment was to take a photo of ourselves and do a vector drawing of it. I had so much fun with this project, I learned tons of valuable knowledge from it, AND I ended up with a great piece that adds something very personal to my portfolio.
