The first assignment, I choose was 5 stars, and we were instructed to use a photoshop program to use grass or something Earthy to create something. I used the drawing feature on Google Docs to take bundles on grass and to make it into the word, “Love.”
The next assignment I choose was 4 stars and instructed to create a gif reacting to something. I choose to create a gif reacting to how I feel about an event on campus tomorrow. The African Student Union, that I am apart of is hosting an event called Colors of Africa. I made a gif using giphy.com to represent how I felt. I used a clip of Jonah Hil from the movie, Get Him to the Greek, to express my excitement.
For my third, assignment, I did the Big Eyes assignment which is 2 stars. The challenge was basically to make eyes appear twice as big. I choose a picture of my study group because we were all wearing masks so the only thing you can see to begin with is our eyes and I cropped and zoomed in a bit to make our eyes appear larger.
The last assignment I completed was the Design to shock assignment which was a 4 star assignment. I was instructed to use photoshop to combine pictures or text to create a shocking image, I created a distorted image with a mirror selfie of me and my besite and I duplicated the image to create an optical illusion and I added the text, “House of mirrors, is your face really your trusest reflection,” to make it spooky and give it that “shocking factor.”
