For this project I’ve been asked to come up with an illustration or a custom design on the bottom of a longboard. The design should appeal to people who interact with this sport We are free to reference a drawing, a quote, or anything we think would look nice on a board. There is a lot of competition, which is why board companies have to think very carefully about their designs.
In terms of this project I think it would make sense to visit some skateboard shops to experience what boards and clothes they offer their customers. Skateboards overall have got a variety of different designs which is a great offer for people who are into skateboarding. I would also do some research on artists and designers, via Designinspration, Behance, Pinterest and Tumblr, creating skateboards and different art pieces to get an inspiration of techniques and processes for my future outcome.
To earn a Pass I need to research the use of digital illustration, referring to the work of others, use digital illustration packages to produce illustrative graphics as well as discuss my own digital illustration work.
To earn a Merit I need to purposefully research the use of digital illustration with reference to the work of others reaching coherent conclusion, purposefully use digital illustration packages to produce effective illustrative graphics and coherently discuss my own digital illustration work.
To earn a Distinction I need to independently and perceptively research the use of digital illustration with reference to the work of others, independently use digital illustration packages to produce imaginative and original illustrative graphics and perceptively discuss my own digital illustration work.
What would I like to learn from this project ?
In this project I’d like to learn how to turn basic illustration ideas into high quality outcomes. I especially like to learn new processes and techniques of diverse artists and designers, to widen my horizon in art and design.
