What I Learned: I learned how to take fonts and move them into perspective to make them look certain way.
What I learned: In this project I learned how to use all the different elements of design and put them into one poster. I especially learned how to use textures to make the poster look like a wrinkled piece of paper.
-Who am I and What am I Doing?
My name is Hannah, and this is my graphic design blog! I do graphic design as an elective course right now, but I’m hoping to do this as my career someday!
-How Did I Get Here?
I’ve been interested in art and drawing since 7th grade, and by the time I hit high school and was able to go full swing into what I wanted to do, I decided to go for it and just do it.
-Where am I Looking to go Next?
As of right now, I’m hoping to go into college and get a bachelor’s degree so that I can continue on and do what I love for a living.
-Why Should You Follow Me?
I’m hoping to continue this blog at least for a while after high school and I think it’d be a great way to showcase my progression, and see how far I come. I hope to inspire people with what I do!
For this project, I used a mixture of the pen tool, pencil tool, and shape tool to create the character. I also used different stroke sizes for different parts of the character to keep it as similar to the original Southpark style as possible. I used a reference image for the shapes and layout of the character.
To make the mouths, I used images from the SouthPark character creator. To build the different mouths, I used a mixture of the shape tool and the pen tool to make the different mouths. I also used the direct selection tool to adjust the shapes of the different mouths.
Today, I used the pen and pencil to create the hair and the highlight. I used the direct selection tool to adjust the hair as well. I also took all the pieces of the pants and grouped them together.
During this project, I practiced using fill and stroke with a variety of different shapes. I also had some practice with the pen tool along with the rotate tool to make a gang of ninjas holding weapons.
In this project, I practiced using the pen tool using fill and stroke, along with using the text tool to create a hippo holding a sign.
During this exercise, I got even further practice with the pen tool, but this time instead of images, I had some practices with borders. Within this exercise, I learned how to make different patterns by using curves and straight lines, following a guide line
During this project I practiced using the pen tool in adobe illustrator. With the pen tool, I practiced how to make straight lines, curves, and I also had a little bit of practice changing the direction the pen was going, without adding extra unnecessary lines.
