You will turn in, Week 12, TWO digital illustrations and a third presentation file showing both transformations and the “Before and After” process.
After you watch ALL the video tutorials and also go over the two step-by-step tutorials, you will create:
1. A digital painting from a photograph, your choice. I expect this to be 300 ppi and at least 10″ x 8″ minimum. I will need to see the original file as a layer, or as a separate file so I can see what you did. So we get to see the “Before and After.”
2. A digital illustration and colorization from some black and white pen and ink style line art, your choice. This can be line art found online, scanned, clip art even, or something you draw, sketch, scan. But I want to see the before and after of this too. Either as a base layer or as a separate file too. There needs to be color fills, textures, gradients, opacities, etc. So we get to see the “Before and After” on this one too.
3. What would be the best way to show a client, or in a job interview, your So we get to see your “Before and After” skills. Maybe put them side-by-side, top and bottom? Maybe some type, explaining what they are looking at, maybe this piece itself is visually interesting, showcasing your skills? How will you do it?
