12:45 Week 33, 34, and 35 Afternoon Design Project Focus: Floating Island
Afternoons over the next 3 weeks (excluding Google 20’s) are going to be focused on a theme of “Floating Island”. What this means to you as a person, and how you are going to interpret this visually is going to be up to you both thematically and technically.
The work will be broken down into 3 specific weeks of work, all with different milestones and presentations to the class for credit. This will emulate the type of work that you will find in the college / university environment. Our Cawd Advisory Board has explicitly said they want to see this type of “deeper diving” into an area of career focus.
- What does a floating island mean to you? Right from the start of the project what should a “Floating Island” contain? What are common elements of “floating” that you should incorporate? What are common elements of “island“?
- Decide what type of role do you want to take on for this project. You can decide to be a:
- Digital Painter and work in Photoshop. Final product will be static .jpg/.psd’s at 1080p.
- Illustrator and work in Illustrator. Final product will be static .jpg/.ai’s at 1080p.
- 3D Environmental Artist and work in in Blender with Photoshop for final touches. Final product will be single static .jpg at 1080p.
- Level Designer in Blender / Unreal. Final product will be level walkthrough .mp4 at 1080p (if we can / 720p as fallback).
- A first draft of your project.
- Create a presentation (Google Doc Slides) which has all of the information. Your grade comes from how well you talk about the specific elements. You can incorporate design elements and inspiration, a mood board, whatever helps drive this project visually for you. Your presentation is your grade and will happen THIS Friday at 9:45. 2-3 minute presentation.
- Create your “Completed Project” – completed in a sense that it goes before the class for grade and constructive criticism (and from Mr. Cronin).
- Presented to the class at 9:45 Friday of Week 34.
- Students and I will be giving constructive criticism to you through Google Doc for you to review.
- Review the constructive criticism you received. Adapt your project accordingly.
- Present to the class your final project at 9:45 of Week 35.
- Grade is derived from overall quality of project, listening to the constructive criticism of the class and myself.
Dailies will happen as normal.
Please keep in mind the following A/B scheduling adjustments that have been made for academic classes. These are due to snow days months ago.
Some previous students with the prompt of “Floating Island”. This used to be a 2D Design theme for Cawd, and that is why you see so many 2D designs related to Floating Island – I hope to see more and more varied topics this year.
