Interactive animation

I decided that an interactive music animation would be a good idea because if the images related well enough with the lyrics then the person would press the screen in order to see the next image that animates that lyrics.

Vector and Digital Graphics

After reading into what the difference between Vector and Digital Graphics i found out that sketchpad was the first drawing program created that could create Vector drawings, this was created in 1960 by a man called Ivan sutherland. This was only made a few years after a man called Kirsch created Digital imaging. This program was a big influence for the program CAD (Computer aided Drafting).
While pixels are actual block's of an image, Vector's are point's, line's, curve's and polygon's on an algebraic grid. These are called "primitives" which are the main structure's to Vector art.

Also when you zoom into a Digital image it will have several blocks of pixelation, however when you zoom into a Vectorized image there are no pixel's due to the image being made up of line's and point's.
Digital image Close up
Vector image Close up
Vector Primitive image

As you can see close up to a vector image its flat and no pixelation, but when zooming into a digital image it becomes pixelated due to know use of lines and curves with point's.

Ipod Touch I-nimation

Thinking about my Animation made me realise something, my Animation could have the potential to be an attachment to I-tunes music for people who enjoy watching videos with their song and also choose to upgrade the song to an interactive video. This would mainly aimed at music enthusiasts between the age of 16 - 30 which would be ideal for boring train journeys and also waiting around for people.
Here's my initial idea...
As you can see it would be on the "MORE" option, then it would open the page up to other music apps such as Audiobook, Genre's and other menus to help customers with their music. I thought that i could put the
I-nimation in this More menu for an option to open the music attachment.

My illustrations for my Animation

Here are some of my illustrations i have been working on that relate to the words that are in the first paragraph of the song Role model by Eminem.

"Ok, I'm going to attempt to drown myself,
you can try this at home,
you can be just like me"
" I strangled you to death till i choked you again
Then break your f****** legs till your bones poke through your skin,
you beef with me, I'ma even the score equally
Take you on Jerry springer and beat your ass legally"
"So if i said i never did drugs
That would mean i lie AND get f***** more than the president does
Hillary clinton tried to slap me and call me a pervert
I ripped her f***** tonsils out and fed her sherbert"
"Follow me and do exactly what the song says
Smoke weed, take pills, drop out of school, kill people and drink
And jump behind the wheel like it was still legal,
I'm dumb enough to walk into a store and steal
so I'm dumbe enough to ask for a date with Lauryn hill"
"Some people only see that I'm white, ignoring skill
Cause i stand out like a green hat with an orange bill"
" But i don't get pissed, y'all don't see through the mist
How the f*** can i be white, i don't even exist"
" I getta clean shave, Bathe, go to a rave
Die from an overdose, then dig myself up outa my grave"
" My middle finger won't go down, How do i wave
And this is how I'm supposed to teach kid's how to behave"

After uploading all these images to my computer i will add certain effects to the colour to give it a more pop art comic theme, which would compliment my images perfectly. Also im going to be cutting out certain parts so that i can animate them on After Effects.

Second poster finished

The message behind this poster is that fans and the papers can be a problem when being a celebrity and in this song Eminem is expressing his feeling about how people keep interupting his day with his family and also himself.
This would look good in a shop window and so would my other poster, but what theme could i give these two posters that would seem relevant for Diesel as a brand.

mock up of my second poster

The way i am poster is mainly going to be occupied on eminem as a celebrity, so i have done loads of fingers and hand pointing at him and also a camera pointing at him with a speech bubble saying leave me alone.

This is an initial layout that im going to give this poster, i have put the hands infront of him because of the attention that he gets is relatively in his face so this poster has give the impression of being bombarded with fans.
This is another idea of the type thats going to be in the speech bubble, i think the words im using are very bold and also straight forward which also reflects on his attitude.

Images that work with the genre of this poster

Because the idea of the poster is about the fans and the press consistantly taking photos and mocking Eminem, im going to do some illustrations of cameras, hands pointing and news papers on the floor with his face on the paper. Heres a few images that i want to incorporate into my Advertisement.

These are photos of different angles of my hand so i can get a good idea of the shape and creases in the hand that would be relevant for peoples hands pointing at him.
This is just a close up of the hands that i was tracing over in illustrator in order to vectorize the image.

I wanted to do all different shade of skin colour in order to not depict out just one race but with all races so it doesn't relate to racism or leaving out anybody, because i would imagine that his fans are of all ethnicities.
