Paris Nights

My final designs for my fundamental design class.  I was really struggling with the linear perspective for some reason and I don’t know why.  It’s pretty simple, I guess just not as simple when incorporating it in a design such as this.

While I know that I still have a long way to go.  I’m very happy and proud with my start.  If I can only go up from here, I think that’s damn good!! :)

Red Monochromatic version of “Frame of Beauty”!!

Ok so I chose “Flower Waterfall” as the design to run with. Though somewhat simple in its design, I knew adding the color would make it really pop and invoke the feeling I wanted to convey, which is peace and beauty!

As part of the assignment I added 4 different color schemes. Much more to come for this design. Stay tuned!

Thumbnails for my Final Project Design!! From here we have to use our best one and add color!! I’m in love with them all! I really pulled from the heart from them all, evoking a sense of beauty and peace.  

I was happy with what I did, everything was designed by me, no stock photos or vectors.  We weren’t even allowed to use the brushes.  I was doubtful at first, being that I have always used something from the internet, not sure of my abilities to create my own pieces.  Needless to say that I’m thrilled!!

Now, which one is my best one and how can I take it a step further :/

To top off this election season, Tumblr has dispatched journalist Ari Melber to file a series of interviews, pictures, and stories from people celebrating the 57th Presidential Inauguration. Click below to read the first of the series, in which the leading expert on Presidential Inauguration history explains the significance of having both Beyonce and James Taylor perform, why Obama’s first inaugural address was disappointing, and other traditions to look out for on Monday.

In addition to following our coverage here, you can get in on the action from afar by submitting to NPR’s “Dear Mr. President” (your message to Obama could be featured on the air!) and taking your very own photo with POTUS on GoldRun’s special Inauguration Tumblr.

Tonight’s school assignment, we were instructed to show contrast in our design.  I tried to do something more out of the box and not so literal for some.  Overall, I think most of them were probably pretty literal lol! Either way, I enjoyed creating! :)
