Evaluation and Reflection:
1) Visual Communication:
In what ways does the visual communication/message of the piece meet the needs of the brief?
By using the unusual word is to to show the audience the straight message towards the word which I had to show an illustration for it.
In what ways does the visual communication/message of the piece fail to meet the needs of the brief?
I did have a problem with that at the beginning of my sketches ideas because it did not met the illustration along with the unusual word, so I think that would confuse and fail the audience by not understanding the message.
What are the strengths of the visual communication? Why?
I think not matter how the illustration can be but it also has to show a strong message or position because without a visual communication can lead to a low message.
What are the weaknesses of the visual communication? Why?
Giving a low message by not making understand to the audience and that can fail with a low resolution illustration and a not appropriate font along with the illustration.
In what ways could the piece be mis-read or mis-understood by the audience? Be specific about who the audience is.
Audience are students, teachers, young and mature people who are in to Graphic design, typography, illustrators. I had to be very careful with my audience since they know how to visualise a message so for me to mis-understand a message I should watch it twice before finished up my development.
In what practical ways could the piece be developed or improved?
I think at the end of the day I have done a good piece by showing a visual message even though I was straggling a bit with the illustration and making sure it was the right the decision but I was happy with the final outcome.
2) Reflection of own working practices:
How was my time keeping?
My time was ok even though I was taking more time on my development because it’s the first time I have done a project about illustration.
How was my analysis of the brief?
I did understood even though it was a bit tough to go trough but I manage to go through it.
How was my research?
My research has helped me alot by looking at other illustrations such as drawing and photography just to catch an idea.
How did I draw conclusions from my research?
To look at different illustration and ideas from each section that I was interested to.
How did I use research to generate and develop ideas?
To get information drawings, illustration, imagination, photographs, people thoughts and sketches.
How did I use evaluations to help with my ideas generation and development?
In what ways did I show that I had achieved the Learning Outcomes? How can I improve this next time?
What parts of the project did I enjoy most? Why was this the case?
I enjoyed the research of looking at ideas and have conclusion of it.
What parts of the project did I enjoy least? Why was this the case?
I cannot say did not enjoy because I did learn how to handle in illustration.
At what times did I work best? Why might this be the case? How can I ensure that I work well at al times?
I think by getting information of the meaning of the unusual word and manupulating my illustration at the final development.
What areas inspired me? Why was this the case? How could I follow these up?
I was inspired but illustrations and seen the different methods that are used in it. There was many techniques like using a brush tool, painting, drawing and also it followed me to photography in a way of having an idea to come up with an illustration.
How can I go about developing and improving the parts I found difficult?
Well my drawings did help me a lot to manipulate them in illustrator but I did found a bit difficult on using illustration but I did all my best.
Do I need to develop certain skills? Do I need these now? Or later?
I think am not a good drawer but I did the most of it and by practice I think Ill get better.
