Last night after completing a couple of assignments, I thought of making a camera lens and later got engrossed in transforming it into a camera. This is how a simple thought converts into a complex drawing that, actually, pacifies, my mind which would initially be oozing with loads of “don’t know WHAT”. Yes, drawing vector graphics, satisfies my inner desire of continuity in a picture. It means more then meditation to me.
So, here is how it went.
1. Firstly, I visualized how the final drawings would look like. I would consider this to be the test of one’s creativity, because if you are a reasonable designer then the final drawing would be a replica(or something close) of your thoughts (no wonder sometimes novices can prove more creative, unintentionally though ).
2. Filling colors can be a little tricky. You have to be realistic in choosing colors and apply them with caution as a simple misjudgment can ruin the final picture.
What I did on the lens was filled the inner circle “SOLID BLACK” and “FOUNTAIN FILLED” the outer circle.
3. Application of effects (Or creating them) involves skills as well as creativity. Please notice the difference the circle within the outer grey circle has made and also while working with the camera the angle of alignment of the circles(WRT the center of course) need to be taken care of.. you can go by your instincts(not recommended for novices) or stick to geometrical calculations, that is always recommended even if you are an expert.(I went by instincts )
4. Here I used two transparent semi circles and a circle with fountain transparency. Finally
(phew!) and I hope you can figure out a camera and a lens from my drawing.
It still needs a few more hours of polishing.
A designer would never say his/her design is complete, would he ?
And Hey !!! don’t forget to watermark it….
