In today's post I will show a few images I made from both of these classes.
This was for an assignment using a set of statistics included with the curriculum to create an interesting graph. Illustrator can create basic graphs if you plug in the numbers, but the images I made myself. I started by finding photographs on the internet and using the "Live trace" feature in Illustrator and modifying them from there. It's a really fun way to make your own images.
This was the painting that my image was based on.
That was followed with an assignment to create 6 more icons for a park/nature reserve. We weren't given any images to use, just that they needed to represent Hiking, Horseback Riding, Mountain Climbing, Sailing, Swimming, and a Walking Trail. After some research on the internet, these were the designs I came up with.
We also had to have it printed and used as the cover of a real book to see what it would look like if it were real.
This is not nearly everything I worked on, but these were the most interesting pieces. I don't think I'll do any more blogs on my graphic design projects, since most of the rest is kind of boring, but I still have more from other classes. Stay tuned. :)
