Hi guys! Here are my final four submission pieces. Enjoy!
I feel that I can do better than this. But it’s okay, there’s always a next time! For this project, the best thing that I’ve brought away is the usage of the 3D tool in Illustrator. I’ve only been doing 3D stuff in 3Ds Max and never really explored the tool in Illustrator. But for this project, I simply just checked out the tool and o m g it works the same as my 3D software! I totally love it. Therefore for most of my pieces, I’ve used either the extrude/bevel tool or the revolve software.
The piece that I’m most satisfied with is – “The Baker”, it took awhile for me to figure out how this tool works but I finally got the right angle! However, the tool doesn’t work exactly like how I’m used to in my 3D software, which is able to help me outline the exterior of it, instead of it being just one solid colour. So… I had to manually trace out the outline. And I’m quite happy with the results!!
But. The thing that I felt could be improved would be the colours that I used. I realised that the colours I always go for are mostly blue, yellow and pink. And I would always go the analogous way. I should be much more daring and adventurous in my colours in the near future!
Comments from Shirley:
The Pirate: The pirate hat was a little too big and it overpowers the letter “N”, and also, the letter “G” wasn’t that obvious. As I’ve consulted her before, my initial idea for the hat was for it to be a mini hat hanging on the side of the character. But alas, I guess I forgot all about it 🙁
The Baker: I could have enlarge the cake bigger, so that the details can be seen. And also, there really isn’t a need to have so many baking equipments in the foreground. Maybe 1 or 2 will do.
The Furniture Designer: She mentioned there really isn’t a need for me to show the “final” product of the furniture, as my main focus is just the assembling of the pieces.
The Chocolatier: The colours!! The browns were too similar in tones. But overall she felt this piece was the nicest among all :))
