Project Description

12dbaa7e

Create an abstract or organic piece of art, a layered illustration or work with layered typography. I’ll be taking you through a piece of abstract/organic art – much like a cavern.

ASSIGNMENT
Produce your own layer-art by creating an artwork or illustration using the techniques in the videos.

DELIVERABLES
Upload screenshots of your layer-art piece to your project gallery.
Include some of the following elements, from the video lessons:

  • The layers in grayscale (without shadows)
  • The layers all in white, but with a drop-shadow
  • The layers in their chosen colors
  • The final exported piece
