This workshop looked at how we can create patterns using processes on the computer
this is the pattern i created using the below image. i took this picture on a digital camera of some scaffolding. its something i see as very london, things being rebuilt and developed. also this imagewas very contrasted and posterised easily.
i feel the overall result is too busy, would work on a larger scale.
this workshop looks at the aspects in SURFACE DESIGN.
1.TAKE A SHAPE FROM SURROUNDINGS TO BASE YOUR PATTERN ON
2.SIMPLIFY SHAPE BY CUTTING IT OUT
3.DO IT IN BLACK+WHITE FIRST, THEN USE NO MORE THAN 3 COLOURS
-Image>image size > [untick "resample image"]

i definately enjoy learning more about the joys of what the computer can offer me. so much in this tiny little box, but to me its a closed box i cant look inside and hold the tools i need to learn more of the language
the animation part of this was really good and quite fun!its so easy-create different layers>animate. make sure the time between animations is quick otherwise itll look like it doesnt work!
