Create a page in which at least
two different textures are artfully displayed. You will be producing an illusion
in which the viewer sees at least two different kinds of surfaces juxtaposed in
an exciting way. There are no pictorial restrictions other than the requirement
to show a distinct change in texture.
Many of you invented
interesting textures in your pattern project. You may use those as one element
of this assignment if you wish. Changing its shape or size, while retaining the
look of the surface, would be a simple way to get started.
As in all your assignments, the goal is to create an illustration that is unique, intriguing, visually rich, and memorable.
Some ideas for producing
Drop Shadows are a common
computer graphic effect, and they provide the illusion that an object is
floating just above the page. If this motif is repeated many times in a pattern,
it can create the appearance of a relief surface. I will describe how to use the
Drop Shadow filter in class.
Shadows can also be created
with the pen tool in any shape and length to suggest a complex silhouette that
canít be seen when viewing the object from above.
Combine shapes so that they
seem to twist and weave around each other. You can add shadows to heighten this
effect if you wish.
Overlay geometric objects in
stacks, adding shadows if you wish.
Use masks over scanned photos of textural surfaces to create a veneer for your shapes.
