I have completely neglected this blog for the last month which has been busy filled up with uni work and a few trips to see some friends.
Uni has taken over my life. I knew it would, but the work I have to do is on crazy amounts. We are in our Make Phase now in our project, which gives us 6 weeks to make everything involved in our project. So, for me that is make the map and make the flash website prototype. Sounds simple. It is not!
The map involves vectorising the Manhattan map I had traced which meant going over the whole map and outlining it all. It took the best part of 4-5 days, but it is completed and now I am adding in street names and parks to the map. I still have to create icons for parks, points on the map, and illustrate landmarks to put onto the map.
With flash I have split it into two parts for both Make Phases; Make Mark One I will concentrate on the design and interaction of the website. Make Mark Two I will concentrate on the content for the website. So far, flash is proving to be more difficult than I expected, and I am having a lot of problems with it. It never works for me, so been having a lot of help of my friends to help me along with it.
I also visited my friends in Inverness for the weekend and a day in Aberdeen, which I really enjoyed. Took some photos in Inverness of the freezing cold river while we were waiting on Dolphins, which did not show! I hope to get round to putting the photos on my laptop and eventually onto my blog!
I do plan on getting back into blogging. I aim to blog once a week, but it never happens. This will happen now!
