  4. 4. WOW HAT Fall Into FashionBy: Jordan Juarez BY: Synthia Wesley My name is Synthia Wesley. I am currently, what I would refer to myself as, a "FreshMORE". I say this because I am an unusual Fresh- man, for I currently have 26 credit hours-- TOO many to be considered a complete Freshman, and just a shy of 4 credits to be a Sophmore.Academically I am going into a business major.I am not very confident that i will stay in this Craft:major because honestly i have no clue what i want Using various tools, I haveto do.

  5. 5. Nikes On My CONVERSE By: AllisonFeet Horn Craft I used the pen tool and played around with the gradients inBy: Roxy Adobe Illustrator. CompositionWaisunec The shoes are placed in the center since they are the main focus, and there is a sense of dimension that is created by the shoes sitting on the step stool and by the door in the back- ground. I wanted to play around with the gradients because I feel it really helps the image look closer to real life so that the lights and shadows are blended together rather than looking all choppy. My name is Roksanna Wasiunec but most people call me Roxy. This is my first year here at SXU. I am majoring in graphic design. my dream job would be to design album covers and posters for bands. the reason i would love that job is because i love both creat- ing and music so that would be the perfect job for me! ( the picture is of me at a concert). Craft: For this project we had to pick an image that we took and copy it in Adobe Illustrator. The way we did this was we made two layers. One layer was the picture that you see above and the second layer was all the pen marks that I made by layering the different parts onto the shoes. The way this illustration was able to come together was I would start at the background and work forward. The first move I made was the background (picture seen above). After that I would close that layer i just made so I could still see the original picture. After that I started to work on the shoe in the background (picture seen above). I went through the same steps for both the shoes, adding details in at the very end. The last step was to add gradients. Gradients really helped with making the imageappear 3-D and realistic.Composition: For this image i wanted to take advantageof the space. I decided to try and fill the whole page withthe shoes because I wanted the shoes to be the mainfocus of the image. When looking at this image the veiw-ers eye naturally will go left to right because the way the Conceptshoes are arranged make your eye veer in that direction. I tried to make the image look as close as I can to reality soThe shoes that’s in front is much brighter than the shoe that people can recognize the converse and think they lookin back which also helps out compositionally making the realistic.shoe in front more important than the one in back.Concept: The concept of this picture is shoes on concrete. The picture is actually of my sister and her boy-friend walking on the sidewalk. She asked me to take apicture of their matching blue Nike shoes, so I got low tothe ground and snapped a picture.

  6. 6. NIKES On The Bed Harry PotterBy: Nico Krajecki BoxMy name is Nico Krajecki I’m a sophomore at St. XavierUniversity. I am undecided on my major; I’m thinking either By: RobertCriminal Justice or Business. Furlan Hey i’m Robert Furlan and I am a Freshman at SXU. My major right now is undecided but i plan to change that. For these pictures I took a picture of a shoe and used the pen tool and the eye drop tool to try to animate my exact picture onto Adobe Illustrator. The shoe’s color was all done by Illus- trator which tried to take the best example of the color of the shoe it could to make the image look as real as possible. I used outlines of each of the different sections of the shoe with the pen tool to create the picture. In this pictures, it started as a picture of a Nike shoe and with variations of stroke, color and design, I was able to change the picture entirely to make it look better. In the first picture I used a change in stroke of the outline of the shoelaces and the background to emphasize the shoe. The viewer should look at the shoelaces first and how they look unrealistic but stick outon the shoe to give the picture an all green look. With the the most. The different colors in the background are unimport-background all green and having a black circular object in the ant, they just add emphasis to the shoe and the laces.

In the next picture the tool I had to use was the opacity tool to make the colors less vibrant and then I again used the stroke tool to make the lines known. Finally in the last picture of the set i used the paint fill box to make the colors which catch the eye. Composition- When people see the art Ive made i want them to notice the different functions and layers the were made to see how much a picture can be altered with a few clicks.

I am currently enrolled at Saint Xavier University, I am a Math Major and double Minoring in Science and Pre-Law. Academically I am a hard working student, and will try my hardest to get an A. The Highschool I went to was a boarding school in Beaver Dam, Wisconsin. It’s name was Wayland Academy. I ended up here because I was put on the waiting list for a full ride at Harvard, but unfortunately Harvard I did not recieve it. So I came to Saint Xavier, because they gave me the full ride. For my object project I have chosen a picture of a streetcar. I took this photograph while visiting New Orleans and was fas- cinated by the vintage look of the streetcar against the modern city scape. Craft- The way I used my hand to compose this Craft: For this project I will be using Adobe Illustrator and the picture was by carefully ink tool. To fully capture this image I will be using large blocks following lines to draw of color and outlining each shape and filling it in. everything.

  10. 10. ... CONTINUED CRAFT- The tools I used to create this drawing was Adobe Illustrator, and the pen tool. The way I used my hand to create this drawing was by carefully tracing the picture where this drawing originated. COMPOSITION- What I did with this picture to stand out more is to change the actual color of the sky to purple, and changed the the stroke of every different to flaurescent colors, and changed their fillings to purple. I did this because when I frst did it, I liked it, and so I applied it. Thankful- ly the other people in my class liked it and voted it to be one of the five to represent the class. CONCEPT- What I want people to think of when they see this picture is not only a beach ball stuck in a basketball hoop, but with different variations of colors, and hopefully they will like it as well.KEEP 20 KEEP 21
  11. 11. Even More Beachballs inBasketball Hoops What I tried to go with this picture, was to make it look like one of the old type of maps,of europe. The way I did this was by changing the color of the sky, to gold, the color of the clouds, to a metallic grey and black, the backboard and wires to green, the rim to a baroque red, and the beach ball to white and to have good transparency. I feel that it does like a map, because i pulled up one of those maps and put it up close to the drawing and I could see the resemblance. What I tried to go with this picture was to make it seem as if the whole thing was on fire. What i did to try make it look that way was by selecting all of the different layers of the picture, and changed the stroke. I changed the stroke to flames. To me I sorta feel that I accomplished it...but it is totally up to you. Let me know what you think. KEEP 22 KEEP 23

  15. 15. T E A P O T S By: Jordan Juarez Craft- I used 2 different layers, one for my background and the other for my objects. I used the brush tool with a variation of sizes to make my drawing. Composition- I have darker values where the shade was in the drawing and lighter values one the highlights. The hue’s I used were orange and green. Monocromatic 2 was the pallet that i used to develope my different shades of my hue’s. Concept- The left is a shoter and wider bowl where as the one on the right is a longer and taller bottle. The objects sitting inside the objects are sticks making this drawing have some natural points of view. I created this awesome art work with my magnificant hand.KEEP 30 KEEP 31
  16. 16. T E A P O T S By: Nico Krajecki I created these pictures using Adobe Illustrator. With Adobe I used the pen and the pad for the computer. I used different shades of green to make the image as close to how it looked like. The main thing that was done for this was using differ- ent colors to show shading of an object. I used lines going different directions, some with different colors to bring out the shading the best I could to show the way the object looked under the light.KEEP 32 KEEP 33
  17. 17. T E A P O T SBy: Shawnita Montgomery Craft: For the following images I use Adobe Illustrator. The tools for this were the paint brush, color guide (using mul- tiple forms of color) and the the brush stroke. Also a glass bottle and small round vase was used, and a bright light to give the objects shades. Composition: I want my audience to see the growth of my images as they develop more color and detail. I way their eyes to fall on the shades and shadows as well as the shapes outline. Focus on the Hue’s and values of the images. The images were created for my computer graphics class recently and I want my growth or skills to be noticed as I try to advance my work to my best.

  18. 18. T E A P O T S By: Roxy Waisunec Craft: to create these images I used illustrator. in Illustrator I chose the brush tool and and made two layers. The first layer was made with a green pallet and its all 5s. the second (bowls) layer was made with different size brushed ranging from .25-10. The color pallet used for that was orange monochromatic 2. Composition: The hue that was used in this was green and orange because they are on opposite side of the color spectrum. The image has a lot of darker values on the left side of the left image and right side as well. where on the op- posite side has a lot more lighter values. The reason the two colors were chosen were because they create a very nice contrast. Concept: the left image was a tall and wide vase that had natural lines and branches. The right side has a short more narrow vase with more lines and branches as well. both have natrual shapes to them.KEEP 36 KEEP 37
  19. 19. T E A P O T S By: Giovanni Diaz Craft - The tools I used to make this drawing were Adobe Illustrator, the paint brush, and different layers of color. The way I used my hand to make this drawing was by using lines to create the shapes of the drawing. Also I made the background by putting many different ways of writing five with different colors and size. Composition - I used different colors and sizes to not only create the background, but also to create the different shapes. I also used value in this drawing, which is the relationship be- tween these objects and light. Finally I used Hue and contrast of colors, to really make this drawing pop up and cath the eyes of the viewer; eventhough it is ugly. Concept - This drawing has an object that is tall and an object that is short. It also has an object that is natural and an object that is hand-made. What I want people to think when they see this drawing is a colorful drawing, with two handmade objects holding twigs. The way I set up these pictures, was by organizing them in chronological order. From how the teapots looked like when I took the first picture, and when I finished them.KEEP 38 KEEP 39
