GOAL: You will create a PhotoShop series of 3 images (1 still life, 1 landscape, 1 portrait). The still life will be a line drawing done by hand, the landscape will use a specific photoshop process, and the final portrait will be a creative mix of both processes.
Week 7-8 DIGITAL PORTFOLIO REFLECTION:First, what Elements of Art are used in your digital Still Life painting? Describe how you specifically used each element. Explain the relationship between the size of your texture brush and controlling the value scale of your image. What part of the digital painting process do you find most enjoyable and which part do you find monotonous or challenging and why? (6 Sentence minimum)
Next, explain where your landscape image was taken. Using the Elements of Art as keywords, describe the similarities and differences between your finished landscape image and your finished still image. Reflect on your process... Did you stay with the more basic beginning tutorial or were you able to refine the image using advanced filter techniques? How did your technique affect the outcome? (6 Sentence minimum)
Finally, tell us a little about the portrait photo you are using... Where was it taken? Who is in it? What does it mean to you? Explain how this final image uses all of the Elements of Art. Lastly, conclude with a summary of your critique results... Do you agree with them, why or why not? (6 Sentence minimum)

Design differs from art in that it has to have a purpose. Visually, this functionality is interpreted by making sure an image has a center of attention, a point of focus. The principles of design are the rules a designer must follow to create an effective composition that cleanly delivers a message to the audience.Maybe you’re thinking, ‘But wait! I thought design was all about creativity?’ If you’re an entrepreneur or designer who’s just starting out, you might be tempted to go wild and combine the first five typefaces and colors that catch your eye, believing you’re creating something fresh and new. like you think about something and it just pops up and you take time and patience
You will probably find yourself with a design that is muddled, unfinished, or well, just plain ugly Graphic design, like any discipline, adheres to strict rules that work beneath the surface to make the work stable and balanced.
