2nd lesson of CAD

For this lesson, we were experimenting with the colour blending tool, and the colour replacement tool.

I was very perplexed to begin with because i started using the colour replacement tool on drawings that i had scanned in and could not understand why the colour was coming out a lot brighter than what i had selected. As it turns out, because i had not drawn the images on Photoshop, then it could not replace the colour, so instead it painted on a much brighter colour. I really like it even though it was not my intension.

On the final image, i managed to use the tools properly, as it was on an image that i had drawn on Photoshop. it worked really well because it just adds highlights to the brush line giving the drawings more depth. The blending tool is also very effective because because it just softens the lines so tha they are not as harsh.

This task was very interesting. We set off drawing an image in a time frame, utilising the tools that we had just learnt. When the time ran out, we had to swap computers and draw on someone else’s image. We did this several times before coming back to our own drawing. We worked back into our own drawing to produce the final image. I really liked this task, but i did become very protective of my own drawing.

This task was the same, but with a different image and for the final layer, we had to create a new layer and fill it with a colour so that we could not see the background. We then had a tool that allowed us to use the brush and only remove the colour but still leaving the brush marks. This was really good because it allowed us to create a lot of textures.
