We’ve entered week 3 and at the end of this week, I must submit my first assignment. It is to consist of two grayscale images showcasing what I learned in the tutorial. The tutorial, this week, focused on the Glob. We disected, rearranged and transformed the glob into a variety of different items. Next we used the items to create something entirely new.
These tasks perplex me. I’m uncertain what the expected outcome is and I’m not entirely sure I rememberwhat I read on the OUA website that had me thinking this would be a good ‘graphic design’ unit but nonetheless, it is certainly challenging me. In the end, I did 5 images and eventually chose two to submit for my assignment.
Things I learned from this tutorial:
- Shift+Control+C does a merged Copy, useful when copying a selection from multiple layers.
- Shift+Control+T repeats a previous transformation on a duplicate layer. This is very handy for forming spirals etc.
- I am nowhere nearly as talented as those in my class and find it difficult to stretch myself outside the box. I think I blame this on the polarity of doing a very creative unit with a Curtin unit (famous for its rigidity and inflexibility). This is something I’m not comfortable with and I need to learn to stretch myself and embrace these differences.
So here are the five images I created. I shan’t reveal which ones I actually submitted until the results are in. Can you guess which two I selected?
