Categories: Demonstrations,Handouts,Project Info No Comments

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.

Here is the handout with explanations and due dates for all the sketchbook assignments we will have for the rest of quarter 2. I will post examples of the one due next week shortly.

Website Analysis

Categories: Handouts,Project Info No Comments

In preparation for any design/project, we always look at artwork done by other artists. It isn’t any different with WebSites.

Below I have attached a link to a worksheet I want you to fill out for class on Friday. Follow the instructions on the worksheet, and answer the questions I have given you. You can either print the worksheet out and write in your answers, or you can type them directly into the Word version of the handout. Please note – you need to download the WORD document version of the handout in order to be able to type your answers in – the PDF will not allow you to do so very nicely, if at all. This handout is due on Monday, and you will not have classtime on Monday to finish it, so get it done this weekend if you don’t do it during class today. (The only reason why you might not do it today is if you are finishing up your Surrealism portrait.)

Also, start thinking about what kind of a website you would want to design. What product would you want to sell? It can be real or imagined. More information on Monday!

Surrealism Digital Portrait Project

Our next project is a surrealistic portrait assignment. Below is a copy of the handout, and a few examples of previous student work for this project (or one close to it). The last two images are ones I found on the internet that I liked because it shows you all the different photographs used to make the images.

Line Design (Font) Evaluation

Below are links for the Line Design Evaluation that I passed out in class. Use the Word Doc if you want to type your answers. Please use a different font (readable) or italics so that it is easy to differentiate your answer from the questions!
