So for this project, I wanted to create doodles using the number 5 as a base. I didn’t actually come up with this idea entirely on my own. The first drawing of a dog was taught to me years ago by a foreign exchange student who stayed at my house for a short time. I used to draw it on all my papers all the time when I was younger, so it was kind of nice to draw it once more. After that first drawing, however, I was kind of on my own to come up with the later drawings. The snake seemed like the easiest idea, but from then on I had to use my creative talents as an artist to figure out the other three. I did this by flipping and rotating the number, changing my perspective of it helped me come up with new ideas. After that, I had to go in with a screen recorder and my tablet to capture the digital drawings. I knew I wanted to do this digitally, specifically because I wanted to use this project as a chance to do some small animations. Some of them are really short, and frankly silly, but still fun! On another note, I had so much trouble editing this video because Premiere Pro kept glitching on my computer and turning out awfully rendered clips. I finally got it though! And I uploaded it to youtube! Only to realize the maximum time limit was supposed to be 2 minutes, and this video is almost at three. I’d like to think the content is enough to excuse the excess time, but frankly, even if it isn’t I’ve been playing around with these clips too much to go back again, not to mention resubmit everything.
Anyway, all complaining aside, enjoy!
