Hi, this is where I’ll be talking about my process for assignment 3.
Firstly when i heard this project, I thought I was going to go for the cutesy doodles that i usually draw. BUT apparently that wasn’t the case for my final designs…… ;u;
Firstly, I’ll briefly talk about the colour theory using a single picture 😀
and yes, I used things like monochromatic, greyscale, analogous, split complimentary as well as complimentary colours.
This website is where I got my colours generated to obtain colour harmony 😀

For my final work, I decided to go for a bright blue background for the first frame, a darker for the second and a grey background for the last frame.

(recommended by Mimi and y’all should go take a look at it bc it inspired my final designs for this assignment)
There were a lot of flat illustrations in this book which in the end inspired me to go for a style I never thought I would be doing.
And yes, I had to learn how to use Adobe Illustrator. (thank god for youtube)
‘Expectations vs Reality’ (the popular internet meme thing)
which I then change it to
‘Dreams vs Reality’
I wanted it too be all cool and then when you read the final frame, it would be like ‘meh’.
And that was why I decided to use a bright blue background for the first frame, a darker for the second and a grey background for the last frame as mentioned earlier.
For you overwatch fans out there, yes it’s a tracer gun. But Mimi advised me to add myself in the frame, soooo ..
yes it’s semi realistic but meh not good enough i guess. It didn’t really look like me.
(I love to frolic in the ocean)
Tried doing another style digitally since I’m not good at watercolours on paper.
Got some feedback to work on this style and yes, that was when the book, “Naive” was introduced to me and I knew I had to learn how to use Adobe Illustrator :’) but it was all worth it.
Thanks for reading!
