Week of 7/23
I finally finished the design for the “This is Democracy” podcast! This is the final design that Dr. Suri chose, compared with the first design I originally submitted:
The Lincoln statue was a tedious process to trace, since I was afraid that if I made it more simplistic like the buildings from before it would not be as recognizable, since the statue is of a person. But I think the shading really tied everything together!
I also did most of the color for my illustration for RUS412, as of the meeting this is what I have:
I’m going to play around a bit more with details, colors, and shading to try to match the style better. Also, I might change the time to 8pm or so and make the sky more like sunset because I don’t think fireflies come out at 4am!
Lastly, I worked on this animation of a mother + child walk cycle! The kid is supposed to be dragging the mom over to a store to buy a toy or something he wants, which is why he’s pointing and leaning forward more compared to the normal walk cycle. Tate got the walking (legs) part spaced out so that the two don’t step down at the same time, and I adjusted the hands so that they’re connected in every frame.
