EvaluationWhat did you like about your image?The features I liked about my image were that it had lots of different detail, such as the grass and the rabbits body. The detail I had was hairs on the body and little strands of grass. Which made it look realistic.What would you improve if you did it again?The thing that I would improve would be to have more of the body in the picture such as the back of the rabbit. I would also add in some legs and add some more grass detail in.Rotoscope
EvaluationWhat did you like about your image?I liked the colour choices which are (dark blue and light blue). I also like the angle for the shark. I also like the detail of the gills.
What would you improve if you did it again?I didnt like that it is was very plain, so I would add some more detail to the shark. I would add some definition on the body to create depth. I would also change the detail of the background to make it look like water.
EvaluationWhat did you like about your image?I like the background that is behind the writing. I also like how the colours of the background matches the colour of the writing. Another thing I liked was where the background was placed behind the image.
What would you improve if you did it again?I would change the colours so that they didnt clash as much but I would keep it in the colour range so that they would go together.Comic Book
EvaluationWhat did you like about your image?I liked the contrast of the image by using the Threshold technique then blending the two layers together. I also like the effect that the cut out technique created on the image. Which looked like a cartoon effect.
What would you improve if you did it again?The thing that I didnt like was the darkness of the image so I would lighten the image so that you can see more detail.
Evaluation What did you like about your image?I liked the detail of the road which looked like stripes which helped look like the cars were moving. I also like the detail of the grass, signs, stands ad the fencing. What would you improve if you did it again?Next time I would make the picture darker so that you can see the detail of the cars and the lighter surfaces. I would improve the contrast between light and dark.
EvaluationWhat did you like about your image?I thought the process went well however depending on the image you had to look to find the image that you had because you didnt have scene you wanted. Another thing I liked was the angles of the images that were taken.What would you improve if you did it again?I would improve the space between the people that were in the image so that they were closer together to make it more effective.
EvaluationWhat did you like about your image?The thing I like about my image was the scale because it was the right size. I also like how the gills are drawn with the side fin and how it all fits into place. I made it look like this because I turned the image as I drew, so I knew where everything was going to go from drawing from different angles of the page.
What would you improve if you did it again?I would improve the tale because it was neat and I would like it to be sketchy so it looks like it is moving. I would also improve the teethe because they are too square and I would do them wonky and I would also like the mouth to be wider, to make the image to look interesting.Initial Ideas

ProposalDimensionsThe number of pages I will have is between 8. The dimensions of the book will be 21.6cm x 27cm.Story OverviewOn the evening of the princesses ball she is getting ready and she puts her crown on the window ledge. However a big gust of wind blows it off and she notices it and chases after it but she gets lost in the big dark wood. But then she sees a white horse and a king with her crown. Then they happily gallop to the ball with minutes to spare.
Export FormatThis is going to be a PDF File.Advantages: The user cannot edit it.Disadvantages: It difficult to use online.Deadline16th October 2014AudienceThe audience will be children between the ages of 7-11 years old. The book is mainly aimed at girls but boys would be interested in it as well. This is because the book is about a princess and a king. The class would be all classes because it doesnt discriminate anything or anyone. The audience would also be parents because they have to read it to the children. The style of the text will be easy for the children to read by themselves if they want to.
Production MethodsI am going to get images from the internet and rotoscope them to make them look cartoon style. I am going to do it this way because children particularly like cartoons. The background will be using layers in Photoshop because it will create a nice contrast and depth so that I can add more detail to the background.What are the strengths of the proposal?What areas of the proposal need further work?The proposal shows a clearly well prepared storyline and setting to begin with, there is also a detailed description of how the images will be created as well as the reasoning behind these uses.You have also described the target audience in a detailed manner commenting on both age and gender, also the comments on the class of viewers are very well thought out by mentioning the use of imagination and appeal of younger children.
The proposal does not actually name any characters only giving them gender based titles.The storyline seems a tad brief so to improve this I would comment more on almost everything that happens even commenting on the minor details. What are the strengths of the idea generation?What areas of idea generation could have been further developed?The mood board shows clear development of ideas as well as the chosen time period.You have also shown that Disney princesses are the area of inspiration to your story which helps to support and create ideas.
The mind map is very brief and shows no idea development only the ideas themselves.What are the strengths of the proposal?What areas of the proposal need further work?A rotoscoped book will be very effective if done to a high quality. The princess and king story is always a good idea as it is always popular, although I am interested if you will have a personalised style to the characters, to make them unique.
Im not sure what will occupy all 8 of the pages, also perhaps the story should involve a princess and a prince instead. Can you elaborate on how your method of using layers in Photoshop will work? What are the strengths of the idea generation?What areas of idea generation could have been further developed?What are the strengths of the proposal?What areas of the proposal need further work?Its well detailed. The information for audience is great, It seems like you are clear on the audience that you are creating this book for. Your story overview is great because you have described what you are doing in such a complex way. You have put the right amount of information in.
I would say add more detail to your production method. Give your opinion why you would prefer rotoscope and not any other technique.What are the strengths of the idea generation?What areas of idea generation could have been further developed?Its simple ad easy to understand. The princess doesnt lose her shoe, or kisses a frog or does any of that repetitive fairy stories. Your story is great because she loses her crown, and through finding her crown she finally gets to meet her prince.
Maybe add a bit of a twist to the story. So what happens after she meets him? Does her parents like him? Etc. think of a way to make your fairy tale different from all the rest.Feedback SummarySum up your feedback.The feedback that I have been given is that I need to work on my mindmap and add the characters and maybe add some more parts to the story to make it more interesting.

I also agree that I should use prince instead of a king in my story.Which parts of your feedback do you diisagree with and why?I have given a reason on why I would use rotoscope.Storyboards
