    Happily Vector After

    I’ve designed illustrated portraits for a couple of projects lately. I’ve been having a lot of fun creating them, so I thought I’d open up a digital shop for the holidays!

    Creating Chimeras

    I teach a Computer Graphic Design class comprised of mostly 11th and 12th graders. We started the semester learning about vectors and branding, and then moved onto raster graphics. Our school uses Gimp, a photo editing program similar to Photoshop.

    When I took a design class in high school, we created chimeras. I thought my students would enjoy the project, too.

    A chimera is a Greek mythological creature made up of parts from a lion, goat, and snake. It was mentioned in Homer’s Illiad. Today, the term chimera describes any fictional animal made of 2 or more animal parts.

    My students had to use parts from at least 3 different animals. They mostly used layer masks and color adjustments to create their chimeras.

    They are a very talented group of students, and I am very proud of them!
