This week we worked more with the pen tool. Needless to say, it was a learning week.
Here are some of my practice images (the last one is not done):
Okay I must admit, this week the pen tool grew on me. BUT its really tedious still for me. I don’t like spending 10 minutes outlining the Taj Mahal. I worked on it by outlining these images as well as working with this game. And though I was definitely a lot faster by the end, it was…not the most fun thing we’ve done in here. On Thursday we also started on a vector image of south which I am still working on:
This project is pretty fun for me because I get to use color and I am actually using the pen tool for a more practical purpose. I also experimented more with with the live paint tool and learned to not expand shapes if you are going to fill them in because it will double your work time. That’s my little way of saying I now have to go through and individually click the live paint for each individual shape to fill them in. So I have got to get to work.
See you next week!
