The purpose of this project was to get students more familiar with Photoshop. The assignment was to make a front and back for a CD cover using Photoshop and a variety of tools and effects. I don’t remember, but judging from the back art, I’d say we had to mess with channels as well. Because we could make a cover for an existing album or create our own fictional album, I naturally chose to create a “Video Game Hits” album.
Here is my original description of the piece:
This was a good starting project –it was simple and fun. What we had to do was make a CD case label of our “favorite musician,” of course it could be totally made-up. The point was to make the cover.
