    Visual Assignments for Week #4

    I wanted to go out of my comfort zone with the six starts of visual assignments we had to do this week! I started by doing the Assignment called “256 Points” where you create a picture using a 16×16 pixel square. I was a little stuck at first about how to create a picture that would just use 16×16 pixels, but then I did some Googling and was all set! I used the website Pixilart to create my image. In order to keep with the apocalyptic theme of our class, I wanted to make a picture of a meteor hitting a city skyline. I don’t know that it is the clearest, but I feel like once I say what it is you can tell. The second post I did was worth another three starts and completed my needed 6. I completed the “Where Did the Soda Go?” assignment where you are supposed to make a gif showing how bad the acting in infomercials are. I downloaded the 4k video converter from this week’s list of assignments to get the YouTube video I wanted. I decided to go with the “Dumbest As Seen On TV Items Ever” for the video to take my clip from. I then used the website GIPHY to create my gif to share with the world.
