Reflective Summary

This project flew by incredibly quickly,  and ended up with me focusing far too much on a single project rather than working on both at the same time. I’m incredibly pleased with ‘The Outsiders’ cover, as I feel that it’s a strong piece of work in its own right. ‘What A Carve Up!’ was less of a success, but I think I made a good piece regardless of the small amount of time I spent on it. I think that it could be improved a lot, given more time, but the deadline for this project encroaches, so if I do then it won’t be in time for hand-in.

This has been an eye-opening project, as I have realised that under pressure sometimes I don’t generate many ideas, and so often go with the first idea I think of instead of exploring multiple options. This can be detrimental as the first idea may seem good, but has the possibility of not working, so in that case I need other ideas to fall back on so that I at least have something rather than nothing at all.
