Intro to Computing Art // Illustrator Project 2

I have extraordinary students. They accepted the challenge of the OMG project, as in “Oh my gosh, this is so hard and time consuming!!!” and they did very well.

The objective: Recreate a movie scene with your own models and photography.  Then use the photo as a template to make a vector illustration in Adobe Illustrator.  Tiny solid shapes make up the entirety of the photo to make a realistic representation.  They spent about three weeks on the project.

Below are some examples that were turned in. I also included the outline imagery to show the number of shapes that were created to make up the compositions. All have aspects to be improved upon for their portfolio, but overall I was very pleased with their results! These illustrations are sure to blow your mind!
