This term I'm taking two classes that use the computer to create artwork. One is teaching the Adobe software, "After Effects" (for making short animations), and the other is giving me lots of practice -- and challenges -- in using Adobe Illustrator. I saved this class for last, of the required art classes in my degree program (yes, I'm almost finished), because I knew it required use of Illustrator, and although I took an Illustrator "how-to" software class earlier, I feel like that was just a brief introduction, and I have so much more to learn.
Well, I'm starting to learn things, now, while needing to use the software for various projects in the Digital Illustration class. Some of this is though trial and error, and some is with the good help of the lab assistants in the art bldg computer lab, as well as help in class from my teacher.
Here is a recently finished poster. The assignment was to make a poster of a famous scientist of the 20th century. So I chose the inventor of the rocket, Robert Goddard.
