Day 3 of Digital Art Workshop
The third day of the workshop I began working with my other mentors and our students on our tale of transformation. Our group was making a story based on The Ugly Duckling. Our story would be called The Ugly Pumpkin, and the visuals were inspired by Andy Warhol and the Pop Art movement. The mentors and storytellers went through our storyboard and thought of how each part of the story could be created and animated. (The storyboard had been made previous to this class.) The story was divided among the students, and they began working. Since initial images had been made during day two, we were able to start animating quickly. The students manipulated different elements of their images in Photoshop to show change and created simple animation in Photoshop. Each student seemed to have caught on very quickly to the different ideas of Photoshop. They were really able to plow through tasks that needed to be done. I was excited about how much was accomplished but knew there was still a great deal to do.
