Week 3

Using some of the skills learnt from last week, we attempted to create a picture in the style of the hugely successful American pop artist Andy Warhol. To manipulate I chose an original piece of artwork from the artist and illustrator Jeremy Fish. To differentiate the four identical pics I played with some colour overlay and a small amount of basic filter.

We also had a quick look at Adobe Illustrator and the advantages of using vector images rather than jpegs. Vector images can be scaled indefinitely without degrading the quality, whereas bitmap images such as jpegs are based on pixels and can lose clarity. Below is an example of a landscape picture I used to get familiar with the new program. As you can see I am completely alien to Illustrator!
