I been looking at everyone’s site, and I found this site called Subtle Patterns  [Couple of Years Ago]. Some people I believe are struggling with picking out a background that looks aesthetically pleasing. I believe that the current backgrounds that the students that they have picked are a represented on their characteristics of a person, and I respect that decision of choice. Though this should not stop you to at least browse the site, because who knows you would probably find something that you like.

So I’ve been working on my Diigo Bookmarks here, and I have to say that after combing through around 70 bookmarks I added it to diigo, on what I think was resourceful for ct101. From icons to how to learn Japanese. I normally take pictures of textures so I can use them in Photoshop, and manipulate them to my work in my weapons Textures. So am going to release them to Flickr sometime this week and have them on my site at sometime, just I am pack up with work.

In this piece I had to make a character in Illustrator ( first time using Illustrator) for FA284 Graphic Class. I wasn’t to sure what to do at first, but I decided to make a bear related character, because I bear is constructed with simple curves and circles. So I started with the outline, of the bear and started with the head, and then work my way around completing the body. For creating the one arm, legs, nose and mouth I decided to use the Pen tool. The rest was created with the eclipses tool.

The next part was to add a gradient to each object. So I chosen a brown and a lighter brown, now each spaces that are white is an object that is layered. So the reason I am doing this is, because I would have more control. Now I am done with the gradients, I now move onto adding more details in the eyes and adding a robotic eye, and a robotic arm. The last part is to add glossy hard lights to bear to simulate a reflection.

In regrading to this post I found that number 4 was the most helpful. “(Take responsibility for your work, develop sustainable working habits)”. At times I would get burnt out on Photoshop, and normally take a couple of weeks to a month off (depends on how burnt I am) when I get tired of making art work. I think to help not getting burnt out is that I would probably start pacing my self. I found number 1 and number 2 the least helpful, because when I came to York, my uncle told me before to make a WordPress site, and build a portfolio. He stated that’s how industry hire you is that they want to see your portfolio, and the skills you can do, also do personal projects. So I’ve been building my portfolio, because when I am in CT 399 I don’t want to struggle to add content to my portfolio.

Future Construction

My site name is BlackJackal.us, and it contains a custom tagline, because changing the font would have change most of the menu fonts. The site theme can be found here and it’s called “Clean bold”. For the colors I changed it to my liking, and fitting a theme off black and off white. I have a custom slider that shows my past work, I choose it, because it has looks attractive. As for my pages I have a home page which take the user back to the 1st page. I have my portfolio page that has stuff I did in Photoshop or other works. As for my plugins are “Contact Form 7″Cyclone Slider 2, and Disqus Comment System . My categorizes are ds106, CT101 and Jack of All Trades. The Jack of All Trades is resources that I use on a daily bases, and I would like to share them with the class. Final taught is that I think I would have the finish my about page , and also just keep add stuff to my portfolio.
