Ok this one was giving me problems! I don't like the way it came out at all but so Jerry can get grades in... I wish this class was longer!

I guess I went simple with this one. I Was going to try a bit more but it looked so nice as a lonely little ball I wanted to leave it just how it was

This is the letter M. I wanted to try and use all gray. It looks like a blanket I have from Arazona.

OK this one was not as simple as it looked. I like the funky shap and thought it would be cool to add a bit of contrast to it

The tree stamp is the best of my work I think. I messed around with some of the filters but in the end because of the sun set I think it looks the best just how it is.

Project 5


So I did this one with an E. You can not fit 6 in right so I ended up doing it with 5 but love how it cam out.


So I'm SOOO psyched! after fighting for the past 7 weeks to get this program I got it!!! So in the next few days I am hopping to get all the work done. Tonight I am posting a few things for everyone to take a look at. Hope you like them!

From what I remember, the first project was the single dot and then the randome dots were 2. That I took care of at the start of class. This would make the 2 I am posting to night numbers 3 and 4. The grid and the reversed image.

ZoneAlarm Blocks internet access

Ok. Last week was hectic. I started a new job and am having a little difficulty with time management. This week, any time I attempted to do my work, I couldn't get on the internet. Talk about frustrating. I'm getting through these things though and soon, my work will be up. Sorry for the delay. I'm enjoying the work from people that I've seen so far. It makes look forward to when I get to do my own projects.
Jerry, I downloaded GimpShop and wow, what a difference! I can finally see a different grid and get the the projects. Thanks for the suggestion.

New and Improved Videos

Hello Class,

I have been working hard over the past several days reworking all of the videos you'll need to complete all 13 projects... The new videos are hosted through my website and linked from the class syllabus... The main improvement is that they are much larger and easier to see and all of the audio is working properly.

Just go to the class syllabus: http://jnevins.com/twodimensionaldesignsyllabusonline.htm
and scroll down to each project. Click the link to the Demonstration for each project and off you go...

I think you'll find these to be much easier to use....

Alright, getting the hang of it

I had a bit of difficulty converting Adobe to Gimp but I got it. It was pretty nice to do. I enjoyed it. I don't know if I used the grid correctly. To Jerry's comment, I haven't heard of GimpShop. I'll look into it. I just know of Gimp.

Enjoy.

Project 4 Video...



Keeping it simple and clean... that is the key to may of these projects....

What variations of color or value can you try as well as a straight one?

Project 3 Video....



Now make a selection using the rectangle marquee and find 6 or more different designs... Pick one or two and repeat the square 16 times in a grid....

Project 2 video



Hi everyone,

I had some problems with previous videos with garbled audio... hopefully this problem is behind me... Please excuse the fact that this one is a bit skewed.. the next is better... The Dots should appear as perfect circles.....

Hello

Well, it's me again, Suzette. I am having a good time with this so far in spite of the fact that I didn't have a clue as to how to use Fotoshop, Corel, Fotothing, or Gimp when this class started. Nevertheless, I have managed to download and utilize Gimp along with Fotothing after a lot of trial and error with Fotoshop, Corel, and Gimp. I think that Gimp and I are becoming good friends.

Oh, by the way, I have been trying to locate my fellow classmates on Fotothing and have been unsuccessful in doing so, except for two of you, who assisted me in doing so by posting your user names on the blog.

By for now and good luck to all.

Hello Everyone

Hi I am Derek and I am finally getting on to the blogger. Unfortunatly, last week I was really ill with a kidney stone. I look forward to exploring the site and learning more about the subject. The blogger and fotothing is completely new to me. I will get back to everyone soon.
