Project 3 - Three Detailed Ideas
For project three so far, I have been brainstorming a lot of ways I could go about it. I am very interested in the theme of beauty/ simplicity of nature, so regardless of what I end up doing, I plan on trying to encapture that. I think the main part of this project for me will be trying to incorporate elements of Illustrator into a more photo-based project. I will try to keep my work simplistic, while at the same time, using design elements to create an aesthetic piece of art.
(Photos attached go in order of each example)
Idea 1: Illustration Overlay:
- for this idea, I would use an illustration I create in illustrator to be overlayed on top of my decided images. The illustration would most likely have to do with a more nature involved theme or concept, and wouldn't be as aesthetic. My personal idea was using images of the sky and ocean and creating illustrated elements, like a sailboat or an airplane. The basic overall idea is integrating illustrated elements into a photograph and trying to make it appear seamless. This idea would be more cartoon based.
Idea 2: Design/Overlay:
- For this idea, I would use simplistic lines and shapes to complement the lines and shapes that are featured in the photo they are overlayed on. I think this idea is more aesthetically based and would focus on creating a focal point or points for an image. I could also show forms of movement by using drawn elements in Illustrator.
Idea 3: Color blocking a Photo:
- This example was shown to us in class, and I have done this type of work before, and while it may be tedious, I really enjoy creating it. I would fill and colorful geometric shapes to recreate certain aspects of the photographs I use. I could either redo a flower, a cloud, or a television. I personally also think this idea is more aesthetic and would just serve to assess my skills and eye for design.
Something I am also really keeping in mind is that this project is a dip-tic and that I personally want my diptychs to be complementary and not contrasting. So whatever I end up doing will include two images that go along nicely with each other and follow the same themes.
