Illustrator for Beginners / Curved Shapes
ASSIGNMENTS, PART 2 Shapes Made of Curved and Straight Lines
Weeks 4 — 5 This next part will be similar to assignment number one, except you will
draw curved and straight lines to make a whole shape. Once again, you will make sure to
explore more than just simple shapes that are easy within Illustrator. After you complete
a whole set, you will then rotate these elements to see how they can become a formal
system within an identity system.
> Part 1: Draw 50 shapes in your notebook, using both curved and straight lines. Take
a photo of your drawings with your phone. You will then import your photos into
Illustrator to use as a template for drawing.
> Part 2: Select 25 shapes that are most successful, and draw them in Illustrator. Make
sure that you make ‘closed’ shapes, so you can fill the shapes with color later.
> Part 3: Select five color palettes of at least three colors each.
> Part 4: Apply the color palettes to your forms to generate as many successful elements
