Digital Illustration Textures

For my primary evidence I have been recording textures I have found in the environment. Here are some photographs of clouds I took in Liverpool. I was also asked to take a photo of a white shirt. Additionally present are textures I found when I went to Castletown, and exploring Douglas.

Cloud Textures

I took this photograph next to the Liver Birds.

I took this photograph in the central area.

The shape this cloud makes is long.

The shape this cloud makes has simple curves.

Iconic Liverpool Photographs

In Liverpool, I took some photos of things that interested me or what I thought was iconic.

My first iconic Liverpool photograph is of the Liver Birds, which is one of the first things you notice as you get of the boat.

This photograph is of one of the streets in the central area. I thought it was very interesting and artistic. It was the only street in Liverpool which looked like that so I thought it was iconic.

This photo is of the cathedral. It has a very interesting and creative structure.

This photograph is of a Queen Victoria monument outside the courts. It looks very old and powerful.

Liverpool Skyline Photographs

In Liverpool I took some photos of the skyline, one of which I took when I got off the boat, and one before I got back on, on the way home.

I took this photograph as the boat was heading in to dock. I like the glimpse of red in the background.

I also took this one as the boat was about to dock. I like how the end of the land reaches roughly in the centre of the photograph.

I took this photograph as soon as I got off the boat.

I took this photograph on the way back to the boat. I love the lighting from the sun which makes the photo feel warm. I also like the use of space.

I took this photo before I got on the boat. I thought the sunlight hitting the boat was beautiful.
