Art Activity - Front Page News
« on: 28 Mar 2018, 04:02 »
One of the things we used to do is have various art-related activities and I thought it might be fun to do one again.  This would be based around a front page news article of The Realiser paper.  There should be enough backgrounds & character sprites to come up with some interesting articles.

Below is a template with the fonts and font size used for the article headline & text and an example I cooked up.

Template (with fonts used):


An Example:


There's no set limit to the size of picture to text (much like real papers, these change day to day), or how they're placed.

Sounds like fun, might give it a try. Are there any specific rules to it?

I`ve not done anything creative for ages, really liked this activity as they don`t take too long to make. I'll try and do some more.

I don't know enough about the universe to enter, but hopefully others do, it looks fun!

This activity will always remain open so anyone can join in at a future date, so don't worry if you can't think of an idea at the moment.
