Working well with other artists can sometimes be a joy, and other times a nightmare. Ash prefers the former, so he'll walk you through his steps for making sure that happens. Learn how a basic delivery pipeline works, and how to share files with as little headache as possible.




1. Create 1 - 2 more frames

2. Create deliverable files for Photoshop, Illustrator, and Cinema 4D

Lesson 7 homework.

First time using c4d and never used Photoshop/Illustrator properly before, huge learning curve but got there at the end. Cheers Ash for the killer course!

WEEK 07 HOMEWORK - Any feedbacks would highly be appreciated.

Retrospectively thinking while uploading now, I can't say I'm as proud for the second image in comparison to the first. Although I would love to know if you'd think the same and why?



Priorities - create 1-2 more frames.
goals - create at least 2 frames with more of the work done in C4D rather than Photoshop.
realities - I ended up cramming this in over a few weeks and pulled an all nighter because I planned it poorly.
accomplishments - I made 2 more frames and did more of the design in C4D.

The best class I've ever had.

The final 3 frames are done!

I wanted to convey a sense of scale and attention to detail with these to show how interaction may occur. Controlling the HEX object requires immense concentration and precision as it can be unstable. I wanted to show this instability as data is hurled, pulled and torn apart in the suspended nervous system. It only reaches this critical mass once all petals have fully opened. The user is ultimately at the mercy of the system at this stage of the interaction.

This lesson took the longest. I had to find myself as an artist and reinvent my self in the past few months. I looked a little deeper into my thoughts and wanted to incorporate recurring life events and dreams that I continuously encounter. I now feel I able to leave part myself in some these of images. This was such a great course not only for techniques but understanding that there are so many ways to create and express ourselves as human beings.
