Project 2 – Week 2:

This class started with a fun “inner circle” discussion about our progress, it was great to hear other’s ideas and talk about my own too, I was feeling pretty good about my progress with my story and character designs and was also confirmed by my classmates via some positive feedback.

However, some of my classmates were uncertain about what to do and how to do it. I took this opportunity to be helpful and worked out a rough story idea with a classmate which we then fleshed out together and polished off. This was a unique experience because I was able to kind of “mentor” someone through a process that produced a positive outcome.

I was also able to help with some basic character design and gave useful tips on Adobe Illustrator techniques to achieve a look my classmate was happy with. Throughout this entire process I felt I used an array of transferrable skills that I had gained from previous group projects but applied them to this different scenario proving to myself that this stuff really does work!

Below is some of my story book work that was due and I did that day…
