ArtD 150 - Excercise 2:2

So, here are my project 2 images... again, my computer is not my friend right now. It's freezing and not saving things the way I want it to and has just made these last 2 exercises endless...

I realize I didn't get a chance to critique other projects or have mine critiqued in time. This is the fall out of having a sick day and missing class. 

I sketched out a few ideas first as I am more of a hands on type- but that meant I had to fuss with it a lot to get it to work in the computer. Below is a picture of a couple of the sketches...

My word is evolve: to develop gradually from a simple to a more complex form.
This feels a little too obvious a design for me. I was suffering from some major creative block this week and I wished I had picked a different word... but I ended up sticking with this one. I had already put so much time into thinking it out and my time and outside forces where constraining my options.
I think I could have really benefited from getting some critique... and the use of a more cooperative computer. I did learn a lot from all the re-do I experienced though...

ArtD 150 - Exercise 2:1







I was having some technical difficulties... my computer wouldn't recognize my previous work and I had to figure out away around this to post my work.
BIG headache. :P

ArtD 150 - 5 Photos From Slideshow & Synopsis

These are 5 photos from my slideshow "Swim Time!".
It's about Holly, her toy, and the fun time she has swimming. I sort of see it as a personality piece.
I originally was going to do a full day of Holly but discovered the narrative needed to be tighter.
I will add a You Tube link soon. :)

***Update!*** Here it is:

ArtD 150 Exercise 1:4 & Exercise 1:5

Original Scan

Digital Image

Version 1

Version 2

The scanning and photo montage exercises are above. I'm a bit late but I thought I would mess around with it anyway since it is good practice.
I scanned one of my drawings, adjusted it with levels, and used a photo I pulled of the Internet of balloons. Flipped the photo around and did some layering and coloring with fx added to the layers. I also replaced the lettering in the cake.
A bit simple but it's been a while since I've messed around with photoshop so it's good practice.
I like the blue one since it has more harmony.
