As another extra task to help practice using both illustrator and Inkscape, we were asked to finish off this drawing below. On Inkscape i used a black and white sketch of a tiger, i was able to use bezier tool and edit path tool to follow the shape of the tiger and fill all the shapes with a fill colour. The end effect made for an interesting take on an abstract piece of work.
Using Illustrator i was able to create a silhouette image from a real life image of a cat. Using a effect that allow you to shade colour that are dark in black and leaves the light colours, colourless. This tool was called the trace tool, using a scale that allows you to change the amount of black in the image, gives you control over the final product.
For extra work at home, we were asked to do a copy of a Japanese doll. This was my attempt of the work, which i think went quick well apart from the pattern on the dress. I used Illustrator for this project.
For an introduction to illustrator and Inkscape, we were taught some of the basic parts of both programs, illustrator and Inkscape. The purpose of this was to figure out how to use each programs and to get ever up to the same level, as some may have never used the programs before. It will also allow everyone to figure out which programme will suit them better to do the rest of the task with. We were taught how to use thing like the drawing tool, shape tools, fills and boarders. After getting use to illustrator we moved onto inkscape to create a Japanese doll using the same tools as illustrator. Though it looks like I was better at Inkscape, I feel at this time I still want to use illustrator more than Inkscape.
