UAT

    Listed here is a collection of projects I did while attending UAT. These cover a wide range of images and techniques. Most of them are for course assignments, but there is a section for my internship. These images were used throughout the university for various things.

Sci-Fi -Collage
Date Completed : April 2006
Project Timeline : 2 weeks in April '06
Project Time : 16 Hours
Team (roles) :
  Jonathan Gardner (All)
Location : Phoenix, AZ
Project Type : College Course

Project Details :
  This is an example of a Collage. It was an assignment that I completed for a collage course. This collage was to use at least 5 different images and appear realistic. My final version used 6 separate images. This one was a change at first as the images were a bit difficult to merge together. The close object blended really well in the final version. The horizon is a little choppy in this version though. Other then that everything else came out really well.

Tiger -Colorization
Date Completed : November 2005
Project Timeline : 1 Week in November '05
Project Time : 10 Hours
Team (roles) :
  Jonathan Gardner (All)
Location : Phoenix, AZ
Project Type : College Course

Project Details :
  This was one of my favorite projects in Photoshop. This assignment required us to take a fully colored image and recolor it. This basically meant that we gray scaled the image and added all of the color. I am really good at doing this in Photoshop, and my image displays my abilities. While I know the flower is purple, I wanted to add some off color to it. Even though it is purple it still turned out pretty good. Other then the flower it is extremely hard to tell that I colored the image by hand. I have used these skills in several other projects. But this one I think really shows them off.

Fantasy -Collage
Date Completed : March 2006
Project Timeline : 2 Weeks in March '06
Project Time : 15 Hours
Team (roles) :
  Jonathan Gardner (All)
Location : Phoenix, AZ
Project Type : College Course

Project Details :
  The Fantasy collage was a fun assignment. I ended up with the Fantasy theme for my project. The project needed to have at least 4 different images in the final product. My final version ended up with a total of 10 images. Below is the final version, but you will also find some partial versions. Part way through the project I thought it would be nice to make some different color schemes. So there are a couple additional color schemes below. Even though it doesn't look like much, the color shifts did take me a little bit of time. It was a little more complicated then just shifting the color on the whole image.

CD Cover
Date Completed : November 2006
Project Timeline : 1 Week in November '06
Project Time : 10 Hours
Team (roles) :
  Jonathan Gardner (All)
Location : Phoenix, AZ
Project Type : College Course

Project Details :
  This project was to develop a CD cover for an unreleased CD. As you can see from the picture, I used Evanescence The Open Door for my project. I took a few different images and merged then together to get the final piece. I also had to use a consistent color scheme. This meant that I had to also do some color manipulation and photo editing. The final piece came out pretty well.

Family -Restore
Date Completed : April 2006
Project Timeline : 2 Weeks in April '06
Project Time : 20 Hours
Team (roles) :
  Jonathan Gardner (All)
Location : Phoenix, AZ
Project Type : College Course

Project Details :
  This Restorization was to be done on an image that had major damage. The image I used was of a family photo at Christmas. It's grainy and ripped up into quiet a few pieces. Also there are marks all over it from a couple different markers. Fixing this picture was a bit of a pain. There where just a few parts that seemed to take a long time to do. Since the image was originally scanned, it was very difficult to remove the grain. I also ran short of time at the end to work on the grain. Overall the image came out really well besides the grain.

Team (roles) :
  Jonathan Gardner (All)
Location : Orlando, FL
Project Type : Personal / Friend

Project Details :
  For this project we had to take an old picture with some minor damage and restore it. This one was an image I got from a friends parent. It is of his great-grandfather, and was actually the only picture he had of him as a baby. The original image was a bit distorted, but the final restorization came out well.

Boy -Restore
Date Completed : April 2006
Project Timeline : 2 Day in April '05
Project Time : ~4 Hours
Team (roles) :
  Jonathan Gardner (All)
Location : Phoenix, AZ
Project Type : College Course

Project Details :
  This is another restorization. This was the one I did for an assignment. The instructor provided the image, and I had to restore it. While most of the image was easy for me, the big white spot caused me some problems. It covers some of his face and it was hard to correct it and have the image look well. Eventually I got that sections looking ok. Overall this project wasn't too bad and it came out pretty well.

  Jonathan Gardner (All)
Location : Phoenix, AZ
Project Type : College Course

Project Details :
  This project was similar to the other Collages. We had to take several pictures and make them photorealistic. This assignment we had a few different themes we could choose from, and I chose Nature. Most of this collage came out really well. There are a few small parts in it that bug me, but it came out ok.

Sketch To Painting
Date Completed : March 2006
Project Timeline : 1 Week in March '06
Project Time : 15 Hours
Team (roles) :
  Jonathan Gardner (All)
Location : Phoenix, AZ
Project Type : College Course

Project Details :
  For this project we had to hand draw, or sketch, an image that we later had to make look like a painting. Now my drawing skills are probably not the best, but I came up with a dragon. After I sketched out the image, I scanned it in and used it to make the painting version. Painting in Photoshop is a little difficult, but it's not too bad. This is probably not one of my best images, but I did learn a bit about drawing in Photoshop.

UAT Desktops
Date Completed : October 2006
Project Timeline : Several Days During October '06
Project Time : 24 Hours (Total), ~6 Per
Team (roles) :
  Jonathan Gardner (All)
Location : Phoenix, AZ
Project Type : Work Related

Project Details :
  While I attended UAT, I took an internship working for the IT Department. My job during the internship was to create desktop backgrounds, flyers, and web icons. Although I was never needed for the web icons, I did work on several desktop backgrounds. Each one took me roughly 6 hours to complete. I would work in Photoshop to create the backgrounds. I was giving a couple base files to work with. These would usually be 2 to 4 images of the Student of Faculty member, and a text file with some of the important dates. My main job was to create the backgrounds and display the information. All 4 of the backgrounds were used anywhere from 1 to 2 weeks.

Project Details :
  The Flyers were the other main part of my internship. I designed a total of 6 different Flyers for various things at the University. These flyers were used anywhere from 2 weeks to 4 months. The setup for each was similar to that of the Backgrounds. I was giving a few base files and I designed the Flyer from that.

UAT Mock Ups
Date Completed : September 2006
Project Timeline : Several Days in September '06
Project Time : 20 Total Hours, ~4 Per
Team (roles) :
  Jonathan Gardner (All)
Location : Phoenix, AZ
Project Type : Work Related

Project Details :
  Here are some of the Mock up Backgrounds I made during my internship. These backgrounds weren't used at the university, but my supervisors used them to check my progress. Some of these had a few versions, but I will only display the last version. 90% of the changes my supervisors suggested dealt with color or text placement. Overall these things seemed to come down to personal preference as opposed to a professional critique.
