Color composition

To start off this assignment I took the the color test. I scored a 15, which isn’t too great, but better than I had thought I would get. It was also a great exercise to prepare me for the actual sketch.

When I began planning my code I realized that I typically don’t implement much use of color in sketches. I tend to focus more on the technical coding part as far as I getting the interaction I want in the code. I definitely spend less time in making it visually pleasing and using color to move a story along.

First I coded the basic background by using a previous sketch as inspiration. Once I got the shapes and background I wanted, I added a slider to change the hues. I have never changed the color mode to HSB, so that took a bit of adjustment to understand the effect of color.

Working with sliders was something else that was a bit different for me in this assignment. I have only worked a little with using a slider to change colors, as I have worked a bit more with using sliders to change the size.

After adding sliders, I decided that I wanted another effect that ran on its own. Screen Shot 2015-10-27 at 11.15.07 AM

I liked this effect as it gives more of an opportunity to see more colors without changing the slider yourself.
