Corel Draw Final October 10, 2016

For my final I made a symbol. I made this symbol for later on in the year for when I want to laser engrave this symbol onto a phone case.  I got the idea and shape of the symbol from http://www.clipartbest.com/cool-symbols. I made this shape using the Bezier tool.  I started by making the first 3rd of the symbol by just approximating where the lines should go. Once I did that I grouped all of those objects and then used the mirror tool to create the second 3rd to the right. To get the final third I copy and pasted the grouped objects and rotated the object to the correct spot. Once the outer part of the symbol was done I made the lines going around the center also using the Bezier tool. Something that made this project easier was the ability to rotate and mirror grouped objects. This saved time and effort because I only had to make one of the three outer shapes. Something that made this project hard was grouping the objects. When it came time to copy and paste or rotate I had to select all of the objects in the shape. This was hard because it was hard to know if you had all of the objects selected and when you tired to rotate it sometimes you would only rotate some of the shape not all of it. Something I learned from this project is to use the polyline to make the lines instead of the Bezier tool. If you use the Bezier tool the lines do not connect automatically so there are small spaces left in between the lines. If I had used the polyline tool it would connect the lines automatically and there would be no spaces left.

For my second station I did Corel Draw, Corel Draw it is a vector graphics editor developed by the Corel Corporation. It is used to make vector art that is created using mathematical equations. I thought it was a very cool station. Its very difficult though so make sure you do the tutorials to learn the basic tools and what not. This is a very useful station if you want to use the laser engraver because both use vector graphics. If you wanted to design logo’s this is an extremely important program to know and very useful. For my final I decided to create a business card for my dad’s business, one problem I ran into during this was that the dimensions were not the right size for a business card you can fix this by going in the top left and clicking on the custom button then scrolling down to business card. One tip that I found awesome and cool is once you have created an image or shape of some sort,click on it or highlight it, go to the fill tool the 2nd to last tool in Corel Draw 11, then go to texture fill dialogue and select it. This will give you a variety of super cool colors and texture designs to put on your project once you selected the one that best fits you then select OK. I thought this tool was awesome because it gave you awesome colors and designs to enhance your project I did it with my abstract art activity. My final took me a while to think of so if your having trouble just do a holiday card or a business card Corel Draw is perfect for that.

For my final project, I decided to create a picture to go along with a quote . I thought this station was fun, but it takes a bit of time to learn how different tools work and where to find other tools. Its really helpful to just play around with Corel Draw at first and figure out where all the tools are and their functions.  One thing that really helped me in this project was grouping and ungrouping. It really helps move objects as a single one so you don’t have to move smaller individuals parts into specific places. To group/ ungroup, you select whatever objects you want together in the places that you want them, then you right click and select group/ungroup. Another tool that was cool was the art media tool. The art media tool is one of the options in the group of tools on the left side of the page, but to find more options you go under the effects tab and select artistic media. It gives more ranges for creating different lines and sizes. I also recommend using the smudge tool to manipulate any shapes you want since it allows you the most control to change the sides. Its important to keep track what objects you have selected because you can accidentally change another part that is not supposed to be changed. There are many different tools that help create different effects and its overall a really cool station.

Corel draw is a good station to start out with, and if you have used adobe illustrator or Photoshop it is all to familiar. With the first couple activities take time to explore the tools and learn the basics.  If your good at “hot keys” Corel draw is full of shortcuts and there are plenty of tutorials online to help if you get stuck or if you want to learn how to do something new. There are plently of ways to customize your artwork with diffrent colors and visual effects. The puzzle is time consuming so a good tip is to use the polyline tool when making the puzzle it can switch between straight lines and freehand drawing. For my final I made a planner cover for the planner design contest. PLANNER

skiier final

For my first station I did Corel Draw. For my final I made a card to congratulate Ted Ligety on winning a gold medal at the Olympics. One thing that really helped me in this station is knowing that when you double click a line you can ad and remove points so the line does what you want. This will let you change the line you made  to exactly what you want. another tip is don’t be afraid to delete a part. if the shape you made is not exact then delete it and try again. Corel draw likes to take the line you made and smooth them out. This can cause the line to not be exactly what you want.

Over all the station CorelDraw was a useful computer tool that I enjoyed. It has many real world application. Basically any engraving program will use these vector graphics produced by this program. If you were looking into designing logos or signs this program will be extremely useful. It is also useful for any company needing a logo, so if you know how to use this program it could save you money by not hiring someone to make it for you or your company. With this station I would recommend to look up tutorials and practices because it is extremely helpful when first understanding this station. For the most part the things I had troubles with when working with this station was the fact that I did not know all of the tools. The three most useful tools I found to create any project that I would recommend learning more about are, Beizer tool, Free Hand tool, and the Shape Tool. With this variety of tools any user will be able to create a decent quality creation.

To do my project I used corel draw. At the start of using corel draw this seemed like a very complicated and confusing station, but once I did some tutorials and did some projects I became more comfortable with the tools. By researching the tutorials they helped me become more comfortable with each tool and taught me about new tools that I used in my later projects. Some difficulties I had was making the shapes with the freehand tool, so after some researching I found that the Bezier tool works a lot better because you can draw a perfectly straight line then change it to a curve line and you can shape it any way you want. This was a very good tool to use because I used it on everyone of my projects after I learned about it. I would recommend using tutorials at the beginning of doing Corel draw to get you comfortable with the station.5

I used Corel Draw to complete my project. I became much more comfortable with using Corel Draw after completing a few tutorials and exercises. When I first started using Corel Draw it seemed like a very complicated station because it was so hard to draw simple objects and make them recognizable. However, learning the different tools that specialize in different things made completing pictures and projects much easier. Drawing freehand pictures was the hardest part of Corel Draw. It was difficult to make the lines in the correct shapes while using a mouse to draw. When drawing in Corel Draw I thought using the “FREEHAND” tool to get the basic shape then using the “SHAPE” tool to fix the line to the shape you want it was the easiest to do. This technique became really helpful in one of my exercises when I drew Speedy the Mouse.

in coreldraw i found that its kinda boring if you don’t look at the book. you need to learn the all the tools first to be able to do more stuff. the problems i have had are how to color it, in order to color it has to be a complete square like a box if there is one pixel missing out of the outer line then you will not be able to pant it.     Image

For My first station, I did corel draw. It is very fun, but you have to know where everything is, because not everything you can do is on the toolbar, there are lots of hidden menus and options that are really fun to do. Corel draw is very difficult and can make you impatient, so make sure you have lots of time to practice before your final.

Here my tips for this program:

1. Before you start on even your first project, research everything that you can do and where to find it.

2. Don’t limit yourself to the biezer tool. There are lots of ways to make things, and although the biezer tool is handy, there are lots of easier, different ways to create something.

3. Explore all the menus. I found an “artistic media” tool on a hidden menu, and found it very useful for creating organic, soft lines. I also found a way to rotate or flip a duplicate of what you have selected, which made creating flowers much easier!

4. There is a little menu if you right click of a group of selected objects that allows you to group lines and objects together so that they behave as one object.

Here is my favorite project that I did:


And here is my Final:


Have Fun!
