Aww You Sneeze Like a Kitten!

AHAHAHAHAHAHA OH MY GOSH THIS IS THE BEST THING EVER. Dipper from the show Gravity Falls, by the way.

Humming Bird Brushes

Using a brush downloaded from the Internet, I painted using humming birds. I applied different settings for scatter, color and shape dynamics.

Flower Brush

Today I learned how to create a custom brush. I used a flower for this one, and manipulated it using scatter and the color and shape dynamics settings.

Moon and Space Owl - Parts Project

This week we focused on a parts project, where we take an organic thing and rebuild it with non-organic parts. I chose an owl and used space as the theme. I used the stamp tool to paint over the owl with a space image and used the moons as the wing and the face (I lowered the opacity for the face). I used another space image for the background. Overall, I think it turned out alright. I like the face, but I had a hard time with the moons that made up the wing. It was difficult to fit into the owl image and to make it resemble a wing.

Duck Drawing

More practice with Illustrator. I used the pen tool to trace and fill an image of a rubber duck. It looks kind of weird, especially the bill, but overall it looks pretty good.

Today we made flowers in Adobe Illustrator, starting our week of Illustrator projects. I liked making these flowers and it introduced a new tool, pucker and bloat, to distort the image and change shapes.
