Basically an introductory course on a few different digital illustration programs, it was a fun class! :)
The first project was in Adobe Illustrator and basically a way to teach you how to use the pen tool. We were assigned to create 3 icons that fit within 2 inch squares:
The second assignment was also in Adobe Illustrator and we were to basically assigned to make a portrait of anyone really using vectors and simplified shapes, the source just needed good lighting. Obviously I chose to do a portrait of Mark Hamill portraying Luke Skywalker.
The third assignment was a character concept sheet intended to be an introduction to Adobe Photoshop, I chose to do a sort of military-style mech tank hybrid... I think it turned out alright! I plan on doing a little work on creating a little more high-tech weaponry instead of using standard military issue and enlarging it.
...And fourth assignment was another Photoshop exercise where we were supposed to do a book cover or a cover and the back of any book of our choosing. I chose Robert A. Heinlein's Starship Troopers.
The fifth assignment was an introduction to Corel Painter, a program I am definitely not a fan of. We were assigned to do some sort of landscape either from a photograph or a concept environment. I made this one up entirely without reference. :)
The final assignment was completely open, by the end of the semester I was looking to do something a little different, so I did a piece inspired by The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker, I did the drawing in Photoshop, and did the line art and vectors in Illustrator.
