Lesson #2 Fonts and Colors
I thought these were pretty cloesly related.
What are appropriate fonts for icons? Well it depends. If you want small writing that is still visible to read you need pixel fonts. The most common being 04b and its variations.
Colors: Its important to select colors that go well with your graphics. You don't want to use too much or too little. It is all about balance.
1. Find somewhere that offers freeware or shareware pixel fonts.[5 points]
2. Make a graphic that displays the difference between regular fonts and pixel fonts [10 points]
3. For color, tell me three color combonations you would use with this graphic[5 points]:
( under hereCollapse )
Extra Credit[10 points]: Make a signature that uses 3 different fonts, one being a pixel font, and it must have 3+ colors in it. Size 270x70 pixels.
DUE WED @ Midnight Eastern Time

Ok my lovelies. Challenge #1.
I'll post a picture and you have to edit it into an icon that is 100x100 pixels.
I will have the faculty vote on them and you will win 10 points for your house.
ALL ENTRIES WILL GET 5 points for their house
So hey 5 points is 5 points and that means the most basic icon is still a winner.
here is the image:

Ideas, Resources, and the Bare Basics
Ideas. Where do you get your ideas? Like all artists, its always good to have a lsit of ideas you keep on your person.
Resources. Its important, to me atleast, to know where to go to find things. A new favorite of mine is google. I like to use their image search. I also try avoiding things with watermarks- I try to find things that are freeware or free for everyone to use. Thats hard though seeing as how copryrights are so fickle. I figure icons on LJ= no harm done really.
I say for this first lesson everyone make an icon using whatever skills you have.
1. List three ideas for any graphics you have and want to make in the class (2 points each).
2. Find up to 3 good sites other than google to find good images to work with. (3 points each).
3. Create an icon using whatever basic skills you have that includes in some fashion the following(5 points):
-some type of text
-the eyes of a hogwarts student
That is 20 points possible.
Extra Credit worth +5.
-Tell me if you want lessons once a week or twice a week. I'm up for either. Or if you'd prefer icon/banner/siggy/graphics challenges in the mid week and assignments/lessons once a week.
Thanks! Comments will be screened. [DUE DATE- Sunday at midnight ET] (sorry i forgot this)
