STOP animation

In Digital Media, our final project was to make a stop animation film. This is when you take a lot of pictures and put them together to create a story. People use a variety of media for this kind of animation, I chose to use people in real life. I just finished my project, it may need some touch ups, but for the most part it's finished. It can be found here:

Drawing Project

In drawing class we had to use charcoal in order to create a "3-d world" using a box full of cardboard as the still life. I was literally covered in charcoal after I was finished this piece... it was ridiculous.

Poster For Change

In digital media, we're making a poster for change in the nation. The change I have chosen to advocate is environmental awareness. The cityscape resembles a large monster eating the natural environment, completely overcoming it and destroying it. We had to incorporate song lyrics into our posters, so I chose lyrics from the Credence Clearwater Revival song, Bad Moon Rising. I chose "I hear the voice of rage and ruin" because people are the voice of rage and ruin. We are ultimately the reason our environment is deteriorating and creating disastrous consequences for out planet.
We had to use illustrator of which I'm not too familiar with. I pretty much used photo shop for the entire thing except the live trace of the cityscape I drew and the lyrics which I used illustrator for.
