Date & Task Comments
In October task 1 all of the flash tools were completed and uploaded. These will help later at the end of the task when im using Adobe
Task 3 Complete – 10 2D Characters – images included, short description, biography, personality – All presented on a PowerPoint.
Task 2 Complete or in progress (Production Log in process) – Schedule complete on Microsoft Excel saved and can be edited anytime –
next plan is to stick to schedule and edit if missed a day or behind on task.
Task 4 – ideas, mood board completed etc…
Much time was not meant to be spent on this according to my schedule however I could have done a
more creative job.
Progressing Task 4 and task 5
Character has been decided etc… presentation to be presented on Friday…
Progressing and improving by using sketches etc…. Ideas were last minute, one thing I’m not good at is
creating ideas I feel I need a little bit of an open idea to create my own for example a little more support
from teachers so I can create develop and understand what the task is and create a character and story.
Production Log – 2D Character Concept
Character drawn on illustrator and edited on Photoshop both illustrations are ready –
However I made a huge mistake as I drew him picture I did not do it in parts therefore I am unable to animate my character
(Not able to move arms etc.). Another problem was I learned that Photoshop creates Raster images and therefore on flash
after importing the image processes pixelated. I resolved this issue using the Break apart option this tool allows me to colour
in my character without there being pixelated corners also this made my image look better and as though it was Hand drawn
and painted in.
Working on Flash to create an animation or even an interactive presentation, I used the help from the Flash tools exercise we did
before. Buttons etc. were the most difficult. File is saved. I encountered many problems during this part of
task however resolved them by using past work I had done with tutorials. However from learning from my
mistakes the next time I do a task like this or use flash illustrator etc. I will use graphics and be more careful
and think about what I’m doing, I admit I have rushed through this due to late and absence however and
also my idea may be weak however from completing this assignment I have learned a lot and developed
skills in new software.
