<ul><li><p>RULE OF THIRDS PROJECT: ILLUSTRATOR CS6 VERSION In this project, you will need to create a composition built around the rule of thirds. There will be a number of </p><p>requirements for what you use in your project, and how it is put together. Beyond that, you will have complete freedom. </p><p>1. REQUIRED OBJECTS </p><p>A. The silhouette of an easily recognized object. (Safety Pin) A B C </p><p>B. The initials of that object. (SP) </p><p>C. The name of that object. (Safety Pin) </p><p>o Choose a font (dafont.com) </p><p>D. A texture created as a custom swatch. </p><p>2. RULES ON HOW TO BUILD THE PROJECT </p><p> Only 1 or 2 colors, plus black and white. </p><p> Your focal point, and much of your imagery must be related </p><p>to the rule of thirds. Notice how many elements in the safety </p><p>pin example run along the red 1/3 lines. </p><p>3. GETTING STARTED </p><p> Open a New document in Adobe Illustrator </p><p>o http://i.imgur.com/u8GKSwS.jpg </p><p> Switch AI to 'Typography' </p><p> Draw a grid on the inch lines, group it, then stretch it over </p><p>your 1st art board. Duplicate it, then cover the 2nd art board. </p><p> Create your silhouette (Pen Tool) </p><p> Choose a font, or a few, you would like to use. (Dafont.com) </p><p>4. CREATE 6 ROUGH DRAFTS (20% of Grade!) </p><p>Try to have a 50/50 split between black and white for your </p><p>practice. These should be simple. Add the small details </p><p>later. Think where your Focal Point will go. </p><p> 2 must be done with just your silhouette. </p><p> 2 with just text. </p><p> 2 with text and silhouettes. </p></li><li><p>5. MODIFYING AND ADDING DETAILS TO YOUR PROJECT </p><p>There are a lot of different ways to add interest to your project. </p><p> Flip, Rotate and Scale your silhouette and text objects. </p><p> Manipulate your stroke and fill to create solid/translucent, outlined/dotted, and negative shapes. </p><p> Change the thickness of your stroke, use gradients and solid forms. </p><p> Use parts of objects, overlap shapes, and let shapes break out of the picture plane. </p><p>6. TURNING IN YOUR WORK </p><p>1. Create a folder for all of your work. Name it: Period#-ROTD-Lastname-Firstinitial Ex: 5-ROTD-Huffman-C </p><p>a. ALL work turned in should be saved as a jpeg file. To see how to do this, go here: </p><p>i. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vOrcNzDcMiI&amp;feature=youtu.be </p><p>2. Include the following in the folder: </p><p>a. Your project. Named: Period#-ROTD-Lastname-Firstinitial.jpg Ex: 5-ROTD-Huffman-C.jpg </p><p>b. Your 6 practice projects. Lastname1-6 is okay. Ex: Huffman1, Huffman2, Huffman3, etc. </p><p>c. The original image you used for your silhouette. </p><p>d. Your write up for your final project. </p><p>i. You can download this off the blog. Just type right onto the download. </p><p>ii. BE SURE TO SPELL CHECK, OR THIS SECTION IS 1/2 OFF! </p></li></ul>
