Assignment 2: Illustrator Project
Illustrator, yay! I'm not very familiar with the software, so I'm basically learning as I go.
In this assignment, I chose to pursue brief number 2, the "Photographic Abstraction". I took a trio of photographs, then I use them as a basis to create a visually cohesive Illustrator piece.
When considering the elements of design, I focused one one or two for each set in the initial 10 ideas sketch. Here are all the sketches I did:
Idea 1 - same point of perspective - light painting
Idea 2 - same point of perspective - lost & found
Idea 3 - same horizon line - juxtaposition of people + buildings + nature
Idea 4 - same horizon line - connecting bridges
Idea 5 - same theme - patterns on building
Idea 6 - same point of view - window frames
Idea 7 - same low angle - juxtaposition of people + buildings + nature
Idea 8 - same abstract theme - broken
Idea 9 - movement of crowds
Idea 10 - same style - silhouettes & bokeh - melancholy of the night
