9:45 Design Homework 22: Single Wine Bottle
Last Friday we watched a learning resource that gave us some great insight on how to sketch bottles / cups / jugs. The main ideas were:
- Draw the ellipses.
- Draw the vertical line down the middle – make sure whatever you draw on the left you draw on the right.
- Erase the construction lines.
- Add in shading, both on the bottle, but also the ground so the wine bottle is “placed” on the table.
This week turn your sketchbook so it is in portrait orientation, and draw a single wine bottle as good as you can. It should be planted on a table with appropriate shading from one side.
Sign and date, due 1 week from today.

1:10 Monday / Thursday Afternoon Design Exercises: Animated Photocomposition of Jungle and Free Choice
Monday through Thursday this week you are going to work on two different compositions where you take separate imagery you find from the internet, and combine them together to create a composite whole.
The goal is if we ONLY saw the final frame, with all the elements put together, that we would would believe that it is an actual photo.
For both projects we want to see a 1080p resolution of 1920 x 1080 in size in Photoshop. Start with this blank canvas first before you start adding any media.
Monday / Tuesday: Jungle
Combine elements of the theme of “jungle” together to create a complete whole. In addition to the standard static .jpg’s and .psd’s, I also want you to create a .gif of the final result being built with a pause at the end so we can see your final production. The gif should loop.
Save as “lastnameJungle.psd”, “lastnameJungle.jpg”, and “lastnameJungle.gif” and upload to the “week_22” folder.
Wednesday / Thursday: Free Choice
In this second exercise I want to open the subject matter up to you. We all had to do the jungle, but what could you take this subject matter to and create through the theme of “compositing”? Some examples you may want to consider are:
- Coral Reef
- Space Scene
- War scene – not for the gratuitous aspect, but for the random, more organic composition of say trenches and explosions in a World War 1 aesthetic.
- City / Urban Landscape (but be warned the hard edges of man-made objects will make this subject harder to do, but may look amazing at the end.
Same requirements of the jungle with the .jpg, the .psd, and the .gif.
Save as “lastnameChoice.psd”, “lastnameChoice.jpg”, and “lastnameChoice.gif” and upload to the “week_22” folder.
