Before beginning the magazine cover project, students in Digital Art practiced using the "type tool" to create varying types of writing. To begin, they practiced changing the basics such as size, font, and color. As they moved on, they got into outlines, beveling & embossing, as well as other effects. The last step was learning how to use a type mask to fill the space with a gradient or an image.
Examples of colored sections that will be cut into shapes and pieced together to create the students' images.
