DAY: 37; Monday


Today I started the LYNDA.COM Illustrator CC 1025: Advanced Corse.

For this section of the lesson I worked on learning how to trace a skated image.

I used the trace

For this traced image it looks very clean and sharp, and retains many qualities of the original 1986 news paper illustration by Deke McClelland.

After Tracing…

Now this image or should I rather say, trace of the image is vary poorly traced with little to no major details to speak of, but what little detail is there from the original image, the face still seams to sketched rather nicely, yet gives off a whited out or washed out feel to the image. Though the image seems to lost the definition when it comes to the pencil witch now closer resembles a cigarette more than the former.


Independent Practice:

For is is I used the skills and techniques that I turned in this lesson and use a screen shot of my current project that i have been working on Thursdays and Fridays…

Sketch using Art Line Art sketch tool:

This image retained the quality of the image but lacked greatly in detail…


Sketched using High Fidelity Photo:

This image retained the most detail and art quality of all of the practice picture shown though I believe it only did this because of the color keeper in the image…


Sketched by pressing the image trace button:

This image lacked the most image quality and detail put of the three and looks just terrible compared to the other two…
