These is my research for the Sentry gun logo design. Although I don’t agree with the entire concept of some of the images, they are all well designed. They have given me some ideas but I plan to take a more minimalistic and conservative approach to it.

About me – 20 pictures: Research

These are the 20 photos I took of things about me, some of them are of me, some are my family, and others are of things i just enjoy. All of them has some meaning to me and they will all be used in a collage.

Strawberry Festival Poster: Research

These are the 10 images I found to help me in creating my Strawberry festival poster. Some of them look amazing and some of them are just very generic but they all have some kind of appeal to them.

Research: Final Animation Reel

This is the animation reel I found I liked the best out of almost everything I found. Although I don’t like that there is really no sound for the majority of it, I love the art style of the animations and the set up. One of the main things I noticed that is different then most is that the creator didn’t just loop the same animation five to six times over and over before switching to the next.
