For this project we began by taking 9 pictures that had texture to show each value of the nine colors. We then created a gray scale and put our pictures underneath it. After this, we drew 9 boxes to show each value and finally we combined all three value scaled to create this gray scale.
This project began by us taking a picture of the still life and drawing it on a drawing pad. We then transformed the drawing into an illustrator file. After being critiqued we began to form our final still life projects. Once this was done we had one more critique and then got to form our final projects with more shadows and gradient effects.
For my bridge project designed for Jocelyn, I decided to make a tote bag that she could easily bring to her new school with her everyday. I included a swatch of what the material would be like inside as well as a swatch of the pattern I made for the inside. The inside material is a soft blanket like material which would make her feel comfortable and would give her a sense of home and comfort. The pattern is an ongoing pattern of her brother, Bernie, with her favorite color as the background (red). Every time she would look inside of her bag she would laugh and see funny pictures of her brother and it would remind her of him.
