    Good Bye DS106

    Well the Class is almost over and this is the last thing that I need to do for this semester. I’t been an interesting class, wasn’t what I was expecting at first but it definitely grew on me. It’s going to be weird to not open up photoshop or Audacity every other day but life moves on. and I sure have created some pretty impressive works… well it impressed me. I’m sure most people can do better but this was my first time working with most of these programs. The Final Project, this was both a pain and a pleasure. I had a lot of fun doing it because I got to … Continue reading

    A D&D Final Project.

    This was a very simple assignment to complete I used this as part of my Final assignment and had a “Character sheet” in mind for this assignment. each of the major characters involved in the story had a WIRED- What’s in Me? page. Here is the radio show story I created, it was actually really fun to do. the Wired Character sheets saved a lot of time as I could write more about what they where as a character and still have my thoughts organized for each character. The audio is a shortened version of a campaign with “fast forward” effects added. I wasn’t able to get into to much detail … Continue reading

    HERE IT IS!!!!! Final Project: Here’s the link to my final project. This project took a lot of time to make and I hope that it shows. I really love with the show “One Tree Hill” and Peyton is one of my favorite characters throughout the series. I always thought she was really misunderstood and had a very mysterious side. When the project idea came out, I figured I could represent her …. the way she is seen in my eyes. I added a little twist to it by saying that she could see “everything”, but if you actually watch the show … you might get a glimpse of how this … Continue reading

    FINAL PROJECT: Peytonnnn

    Peyton Sawyer from “One Tree Hill” is a character that in the beginning represents the definition of a “stereotype”. Her character is misinterpreted completely and through her confusion within herself she becomes a mystery to everyone. What people think of her…… isn’t who she is ……. What she sees is simply …….. a MYSTERY. This Pinterest site created by Peyton exemplifies who is is, what people actually think, & the mysterious secret that no one knows about her ….that Peyton Sawyer can see EVERYTHING. Get a little glimpse of Peyton… HERE (Although DesignAssignment563 suggested a screenshot, I made an entire pinterest instead.) …. Peyton has spent all of her life … Continue reading

    “Answer the Unanswered Riddle”

    “WHO IS THE STAR-BEARER, AND WHAT WILL HE LOOSE THAT IS BOUND?” In 1976, Patricia A. McKillip published a fantasy novel that became a quiet legend among those who read it and fell in love with the world she created. The Riddle-Master of Hed told the story of a man pulled inexorably away from his… more

    I Can’t

    My final project was a nightmare.  I had a difficult time getting sources for my media and for my ideas to weave together for a similar aesthetic for a story, and it’s incomplete (actually it hasn’t even been published.  There goes my grade and my sanity!).  I think the most difficult part of this final ...

    Wind Plain, ruined city of the Gradient-Masters

    Seriously. Someone needs to take the gradient tool away from me. Oh whoops, damage done, TOO LATE. I created this rendering of a ruined Earth-Master city from McKillip’s trilogy to complete my own Imaginary Places assignment. First things first, here’s a list of all the stock images I used to create this image: Main ruins… more

For example, take a painting from modern day artists and turn it into an Impressionist painting like that of Claude Monet.

    The Daily Creates

    Alan’s students where asked to simply submit 2 assignment ideas to the daily create page my 2 ideas where Take a picture of something then comp it up and bit it back together in a different order. this is a fun little thing to do, I got this Idea from a picture which I guess the file got corrupted because part of the picture was flipped. My second idea was to make a video which told an odd story behind something in your house. we all have those things which we can simply say “I got that on Vacation” but this was more meant to get stories which you wouldn’t normally associate with the item.

    Letter home…….

    I can’t believe the semester has come to an end!!!! It felt like just yesterday I was creating my own website and struggling to come up with a domain name that I thought suited me well. It’s crazy to see that I am now completing my DS106 journey and signing out as a DS106er. Making the advice video actually brought back a lot of different memories … and this experience definitely taught me a lot. I got a chance to be a part of a radio show, to make my own movies, to tell stories in various ways, and lastly to experiment with my OWN thoughts and ideas. It was […]
