16 Frame Story


This is a 16 Frame story that was aimed to help me get my ideas down onto paper quickly in order to help me develop my ideas efficiently, my drawings are very simplistic in order to display what I mean quickly without having to go into detail.




During my first Workshop on Tuesday which was based around Adobe Photoshop skill levels and a small set of techniques and processes. Some of the processes were just a re-capping and refreshing session for me although I have learnt a more effective way to create Concentric Circles.

The Glacier MenThis is the poster is the result of my workshop exercise, techniques I used were, Text pathing, Opacity changes,  Texture overlays, Clipping masks, Repeated patterns, and concentric circles.

I also participated in an Illustrator workshop on Wednesday, a program in which my abilities are not as diverse as in Photoshop, in which most of the techniques Matt provided us with tutorials on were new to me.

Untitled-1One technique we used in creating our info graphic that I managed to attune myself to quicker was the repeated pattern, I used my knowledge of the same technique in Photoshop to create my repeated pattern, I learnt the the use of the varied amounts of brush tools and creating pie charts and manipulating them into an art form.
I felt like these basic skills have aided in creating a better understanding of Illustrator and the scenarios where I would opt to use it over Photoshop due to the different graphic file format and lossless image scaling Photoshop doesn’t                                                                   provide.
