When creating radiations in Illustrator, I found that, similar to the repetition project, every small change made a big difference on the final image. The degree at which the object radiates changes the look and feel of the image vastly, so finding the correct degree of radiation, shape of the chosen object and the size of the radiation became the biggest challenge of this project. I also found that using color on radiations, whether on the strokes or in a Live Paint mode, created vastly different images as well.
When we had to make an animation of the radiations I became frustrated at first because I was having difficulty making the radiations into layers. I have experience making GIF’s for the web, so I wasn’t unfamiliar with the concept. Once I learned what to do the final product came out great.
