    Week 12 Summary


    The mash-up were hard not because of the assignments themselves but because all the image editors I tried were nearly impossible to work with tool and UI wise. I swear I’ve had better luck doing picture editing in Word and PowerPoint…

    Otherwise, everything else went smoothly.

    Remixes: Cool Mood Swap


    My first remix builds off of one of my originals. Below is a logo named after my superhero creation Tech. The color scheme and background compliment it as a very Technological theme.

    The Text section is for the word. What it is, along with its font, spacing, and rotation.

    The Logo tab affects the color of the text.

    The Shadow section is for shadows behind the text.

    Through different lenses: pencils and sketches


    For this assignment I decided to have the main features incomplete drawing finished by pencils due to their shape, but also do some pencil only designs.

    We start with the standard pencil being held as normal.

    Then we get to completed sketches.

    First, Pikemen in formation

    How it began: The New Age of Calradia


    So I enjoy a game called Mount and Blade: Warband…

    It was in a tavern in Uxkhal, which then belonged to the now former kingdom of Swadia that I met him. I didn’t take much notice of him when he entered, but when he initiated conversation with me, he proved …

    We laid down our idea, an interview between a show host and a retired hero, and delegated assignments. Ultimately, Hannah and Megan did the interview, Courtney did the reverse songs and the intro, everyone did ads, and I put the sounds together in Audacity.…

    Weekly Summary 4


    This week was hard to put to paper. It is going to be interesting in the future trying to portray my superhero, Tech, from DS’s many perspectives. Probably my major problem was lack of resources to make Tech a visual reality.

    Daily Creates were fun as usual and it was …

    Places of peace


    I have more often then not found peace in things rather than places. I like books, I like music, I like playing on my computer. If there is a place I feel at peace in it is a place in Massachusetts called Pochet Island which the bridge sketch represents.…
