Mr WordPress on Hello world!
My final project is a DVD menu of the The Super Mario Brothers Super Show. Go to cinemassacre.com to see why I chose it, but it’s safe to say that it needs improvements. These are the first two pages I made, the main menu and the episode guide and though I am still working on the details, I think these look pretty good. If you see the cartoon, you can tell the artwork dosent seem to match, but if you look at the original DVD menu, there is no artwork of the brothers, but someone else from another show. Please critique on it, I am open for suggestions. Also if you are intrested in the actual cartoon, go to thatguywiththeglasses.com, and check out nostalgia critics review of the cartoon
For my layout excercise, I used a motocross racer flying in the air. I chose this because not only does it show action, but it has a lot of negative space that I can put the text in. As for the text, I made one where the text is on top and on bottom of the racer, while the other one is parallel with his body. Since I need to make the text serif and san serif, I altered the text so that one version with be serif and the other san serif. I had to alter the text so they would fit and suffice to say, I belive the position of the text and the picture works.
This is my layer excerise. I chose a picture of motocross because it invokes action and I chose a guy flying in the air since it fits my theme. My skecthbook consist of 6 thumbnails I chose one that I circled, but can not decide what the other one is. I know its sideways, I keep forgeting how my camera phone works.
For my project, I used my astrology sign, Sagittarius. From the feedback a week ago, I made changes I felt imporves the project. I used flares, instead of stars to give the project a more realistic feel, I removed the sagittarius sign in the corner, moves and modified the text and made the images easier on the eyes. The project consist of everything that has to do with sagittarius from history to famous people and made it so that the each page is different from each other. I chose blue for the boarders and navigation box because, not only did it fit with the index page, but also because it is the lucky color of sagittarius. As for the topography, I felt that this works well since astrology was created in ancient times and the text gives it an ancient feel as well.
My concept for the worksheet is power. I drew in many thumbnails, but after a long consideration, I decided to use the one in the left image. I decided to use this because of how it expresses power. I want to focus on the W as it carries the other two letters, to express power. I uses a big W in order to make this work, while make the other letters small. I also make the letters bold in order to show it has weight. When people think of power, they think of somebody strong and with the image on the left showing that, it makes the theme and concept work.
I chose Isolation because it’s simple and effective. By having one dot, it portays the message that the dot is alone. I chose this picture out of the rest because it portrays a stong message.
All three of these were tracings of the alphabet with different fonts. This is my first time using a board tip marker so mistakes are expected.
For Focal Point 1, I decided to use different arrows of various size, and style to focus on one point. For Focal Point 2 I did the same thing, but used small arrows on the secondary point, while using big arrows on the main point.
