COLA photo IDs I edited and updated online for two staff and two faculty members.
LAITS Student Technology Assistants collaborate with the College of Liberal Arts faculty and administration by re-imagining their instructional and promotional projects with a creative use of video, audio, web and graphic design. STAs learn technical skills on the job with LAITS development studio staff. They build presentations, produce audio/visual works, scan text documents & perform image correction. STAs are instrumental in helping COLA faculty realize their vision for instructional technology projects used to enhance the teaching and learning experience.
I’ve been working a lot on the Oleg coloring for illustrations. Here are some more:
The snow scene would not have been complete without Bethany’s help – she drew in the winter clothes for the characters!! This scene was very challenging because I wasn’t exactly sure how to color snow, since it is supposed to be white… Nonetheless, the final product seems uber ~cool~.
I’ve also cranked out a lot of photo ID’s for the COLA faculty/staff/grad students. Here are few of the people whose photos I worked for:
Last Thursday, although I didn’t have the time to finish, I started brainstorming and working on a logo for a Communications (??) class:
And finally, I made my own character design for the STA blog!!! It was super fun utilizing everything I’ve learned in both Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop to create a character that ~sorta~ looks like me:
I was given scene U7_4 (Grigory, Boris, and Oleg relaxing in a banya) to illustrate, and it was my first attempt at scene illustration as an STA!
I started by compiling references which were provided by the professor and put them into my art board.
After examining references, I made a rough sketch of the background.
After sketching the background, I roughly sketch in the characters (Grigory, Boris, and Oleg) into the scene. Just rough poses to try and figure out how I want them to be situated and how I want them to interact with the background.
Once I’m happy with poses and placement, I make a new rough sketch and add in props and clean things up a little more.
After some more rough sketching, I finally started lining the illustration. I like to make rough notes while I draw—this helps me think better and helps other people understand what I’m trying to draw (in case it isn’t clear at times!)
