Class Project

Create an awesome vector character illustration!

The final project will be a culmination of all things learned throughout the length of the course. This project will require the student to submit an original project composed completely in vector work, representative of their final character which they have developed. Final formats will be delivered in web ready jpg files; however, each file will be developed for a print ready purpose.

Students are expected to have a take charge attitude and be technically precise with the work they exhibit. Deliverables should be in finished states according to the daily milestones in order for the student to not be overwhelmed by the how swiftly class content is cycled through.

Be sure to always remember that vector work takes a great deal of patience and the more focused you are on time management and quality of work, the better your final product will be.

Project Brief
This course will navigate you through various concrete steps that can be used to create a character illustration in Adobe Illustrator. Your character will be a unique development that is 100% original. Work on sketching, refining, inking, coloring, and shading will be taken to achieve a final print and web ready file.
