Guess that movie, did you guess it?

This assignment involved telling a story through four icons, which seems simple enough, right? Wrong. It is actually a lot harder than it appears. Most movies are not basic enough to entirely depict through four simple frames, let alone through icons! I tried this twice, using google images and clip art for the first one.

Four Story Icon

^ That’s the first one, and I’ll even give you a clue, it’s  a Disney Classic.  :) My second one is courtesy of The Noun Project and their abundance of icons. The only downside is that you have to pay to use them..So I creatively used screenshot to my advantage. It’s a bit ridiculous to pay 1.99$ per icon, no? ANYWAYS, here’s what I got with that.

Four Story Icon part two

Another Disney Classic but a bit harder to guess, I’m sure. For both projects, I used GIMP, some screen-shotting as well as lots of layering to put the images together. However, it was pretty easy once I got the hang of GIMP and all it has to offer. This was two ?’s!
