This week we learnt more about illustrator and I then made a character to go along with my videos. We learnt how to use the pen tool, this then helps us create draw and type of illustration in a more freehand style.
Today we learnt how to use Adobe Illustrator.
Today we each had to tell the class what we plan to do for our unit 10 project, I explained that I wanted to create a stop motion using paper. The topic has not really been decided yet but I may use the topic on how to bake a cake. When I said this many didn’t understand why I would use paper, which then lead me to show them a video of stop motion using paper. Some got the idea after this, which lead them to give me some feedback.
The more useful ones were what different topics I could do, such as how to tie a shoe laces. Most was to not do it in paper, however I think doing it in paper will mean it can be more colourful and so will keep children watching it. Another bit of feedback was for a real cake to pop up at the end, giving it sense of fun.
This week we had to research four different designers that have influenced my own designs. The main designers I focused on, where all based around the use of stop motion. This lead me to look at creates like Tim Burton, Aardman along with more independent designers. Continue reading “Unit 10: Influences (Celia)”
This week we looked at Smart Objectives and how we can use them to help the progress of our projects. We learnt what each letter of Smart stands for: Specific, Measurable, Achievable ,Relevant ,Time. We filled each in to what we think will happen but with the understanding that throughout the project we keep referring back to it and if need be change some of the objectives that we had originally wrote.

This we researched what children like, such as what toys, films/tv, books and events. We did so by creating a mind map as a class that allowed us to gather ideas of what each age group would like. After doing so we made it into a mood board.
You can see that I broke up into two meaning that the topics are more specific to the age group. Such as you can see the variation in games from the younger to older out of the whole age range. I wanted to include colours because it gives an idea of what the age range like, such as the younger ones colours are more vibrant than the slightly older.
