Fall Leaves IllustrationD E S C R I P T I O N
(6.5 x 6 inches)This was an introduction to using the Pen tool in Adobe Illustrator. I began with an image of leaves and turned it into a template. The template was at 50% transperency. After setting up the template I traced the egdes of the leaves with the Pen tool. Once I had finished with the tracing I filled in the shapes and arranged them to overlap eachother.

(6 x 7 inches)This was an extended introduction to the Pen tool in Adobe Illustrator. The goal was to create an illustration from a real image. In this I used the pen tool to trace most of the objects from the template. Other objects in the illustration were created using the Elipse tool.

Line Art Shoe IllustrationD E S C R I P T I O N
(9 x 7 inches)This was another extension to using the Pen tool in Adobe Illustrator. I used an image as a template then began tracing various ares on the shoe. The most dif-ficult part of this project was overlapping the laces on the shoes to make the illustration realistic.

Business Logo IllustrationD E S C R I P T I O N
(7.5 x 2 inches)This was a simple logo that I desidned in Adobe Illustra-tor. I used the Pen tool to create the shape. Next I made a stroke that was used to contrast with the business name. Finally I typed the business name and arranged it over the shape.

Space Eye Photo ManipulationD E S C R I P T I O N
(9 x 7 inches)Here is an example of something I made during my free time. This is an image I made using an online tutorial for the free photo manipulation program Gimp. I strarted with an image of an eye. The clouds are a layer mask on the eye. Next I made the blue lines coming from the eye with the Pen tool. Finally I copied the area around the eyeball and pasted it over the original with layer options set at Luminosity.

Beach Split-toningD E S C R I P T I O N
(6.5 x 4.5 inches)Here is another example of something I made during my free time. This was tutorial for the progrram Gimp. The goal was to take a regular image with various colors and reduce it to a two toned image. I began by creating a set of black and white duplicates of the image. One image was overlayed with a blueish color and merged with the black and white. I did the same with the other image except I used a beige color to overlay with. Finally I changed the opacity of the beige layer to 75%.

Lighting and SceneryD E S C R I P T I O N
(10 x 6 inches)This is another tutorial I completed with Gimp during my free time. I began by using the pen tool to select the original overcast above the castle and deleted it. Next I added the brighter and bolder sky with sun burssting through the clouds. After adding the new background I overlayed a gradient white spot on the closest part of the castle. Finally I overlayed a copy of the castle and made a layer mask to darken areas around the image to create a focal point in the center.

Business Logo GraphicD E S C R I P T I O N
(10 x 4.25 inches)This is a graphic that I made during my free time so that I would later be able to add it to my admission ticket project that I was creating in class. I began by creating the illustration to the left with the pen tool in Adobe Illustrator. I brought the design into Adobe Photoshop and added the picture of the crowd behind it. This was a crowd at an event Insomniac produced. Next I typed the name and added a stroke layer style and reduced the layer fill to 0%. I copied the logo and the name, then pasted them underneath themselves upside down. Finally I added a black gradient to fade out the copies.

Eye Photo ManipulationD E S C R I P T I O N
(10.5 x 8 inches)This is something I made during my free time. I started with an image of an eye. I also got a picture of a pygmy marmoset and used the magic wand tool to select the background and delete it. Next I copied the iris and pu-pil then overlayed it to make it bolder. After this I added the monkey into the pupil and changed the layer to luminosity. Finally I overlayed and blue layer to change the color of the entire image.

Composing a SceneD E S C R I P T I O N
(7 x 6 inches)This project was an in-class tutorial to teach us how to create a scene from various images. I began by cutting out a portion of the fence that needed to be in front of the farmer using the polygon lasso tool, then pasted it on top of him to show that he was behind the fence. This brought his tool behind the fence so I did the same thing and pasted on top of the fence. Finally I copied the layer, added a gaussian blur, then created a layer mask to fade th background out.

Layer Masking with AnimalsD E S C R I P T I O N
(14 x 10 inches)This was one of my favorite projects in class. The goal was to create one animal out of two different animals using layer masks. I began with the image of a lion. Next I added an image of a Pomeranian dog and created a layer mask to only show the face. After this I used the free tronsfrom tool to match it up to the lions face. Finally I added a duplicate of the lion to the top of the dog and made another layer mask to blend them better.

Layer Masking with AnimalsD E S C R I P T I O N
(12 x 8 inches)This is the projet that I enjoted most during Grephic Design 2 this semester. This was another photomanipulation using layer masks. I began with the image of the black and white hand. Next I placed a picture of a killer whale on top of the hand and created a layer mask. I desaturated the image of the whale to match with the original black and white hand photo. Finally I added a duplicate of the hand, made a layer mask from it, and blanded the images.

Magazine AdvertisementD E S C R I P T I O N
(7.25 x 9.75 inches)This project was our introduction to Adobe InDesign. In this we needed to create a magazine ad using different marketing tools including this like certain words, grid layouts, and white space. This is the final version of 5 different templates that I made for this magazine de-sign. I chose this one because in my opinion it captures the readers attention to the main image of the vehicle.
