Then we changed from Photoshop to Illustrator, and I really enjoyed Illustrator. To me, Illustrator was easier to use and understand than Photoshop.
This was an intro into using Illustrator. We practiced how to draw different shapes and use the pen tool to make the specific type of shape that we wanted.
This was also an intro into Illustrator. Instead of practicing shapes, this time we practiced how to make letters, so that it looks connected and not all choppy.
Through this product, I learned how to layer in Illustrator. I learned how to use the different tools in Illustrator in order to draw a cartoon character. I also learned that the smooth tool is actually a very useful tool when it comes to the overall product. Sometimes my lines would look very uneven and awkward, but the smooth tool helped me make the image improve, but it was not a huge tool that I used for every case.
This product seemed to be the largest challenge for me by using Illustrator. Despite the fact that this seems to be simple, I thought that this was the most difficult because of all the overlapping lines. For example, his mouth has a line connecting to the snout portion and that was hard because I had to layer it properly and make it look as it the lines all connect. I was really proud of the outcome of this product.
In the end, my favorite type of project was choosing a photo and making it look like a painting. I liked all of my projects for that specific assignment.
