Your first exercise/project in Adobe Animate is a series of four exercises to give you practice in using Tweens to animate objects in Animate. Below is the handout with instructions, and under that is a video of the 4 exercises. Under the video is a screen shot of all of the settings you need to change whenever you create a new Actionscript 3.0 Animate file.
This Wednesday, you need to finish a 2-point perspective sketchbook. We’ve talked a lot about it in class, but here are a few examples to help you out. Remember these few points:
This drawing needs to be from real-life. Not made-up, nor from some random picture on the internet. Draw what you see, including windows, doors, planters.
You may take a photograph of your house and draw from that. However, please print it out, because it is basically impossible to get a proper level of detail from a 4″ iPhone screen. Printing it out in black and white might also help you see the shading/values a bit more, so this could be advantageous.
Remember, in 2-point perspective, both sides of the house are going away from you, so they are both going back to a vanishing point.
Also remember that the examples below, as well as the video, are just showing you the mechanics of how 2-point perspective works. Do not copy these examples, or do what s in the video. You are supposed to be drawing this from a real-life example.
This one is okay, but I do not like the lack of environmental detail.
The shading on this one is minimal, but okay.
This one does not have enough shading, but it is an excellent example of perspective.
Here is an old demo on how to get rid the of the green screen background in your images. It looks a little different than what I showed you in class because it was done on a Macintosh computer, but everything is basically the same, and all the tools are in the same place.
