Awww. Randy was gone again!

Well, while you/he was off camping, we had to create 4 portraits using only words (typography) to express what we’re trying to say without using much graphics. SO…  I had a great idea for my spy portrait but it became too showy with the whole James Bond picture I had surround my phrase with, which looked cool but wasn’t really what the assignment was asking for, but that’s okay! I had to start a bit fresh but I still wanted to use my James Bond picture, so I decided to use my name to be the “hole” James Bond would be looking through. I thought this is one I the best I made!

My next portrait was a bit difficult to come up with but I came up with using the “That’s So Raven” title card as a template because everyone knows that Raven was a psychic and it was pretty fun to recreate one for my name! My goal for this one was to make it look like the letters were also beaming in a way, to show that I am psychic! 🙂

This one I’m kind of iffy about because it might be too showy, also. For this portrait I thought of using a reminder app kind of theme to it, and that I completed nothing because I’m so forgetful, but getting that app didn’t help remind me about anything that well.

I’m so accident prone, getting a rock thrown at my name and getting dizzying and falling down. I also added the construction background, because that’s where people get into accidents. It wasn’t that hard to create, I just needed to find the perfect font to go with it.

 

TEST!

First test in Multimedia! AHHH!

Well actually it wasn’t that bad.

We were given 3 pictures to combine and turn into this.

First thing I did was figure out which picture was the background image, which was the boat. Then I layered on top the moon since it was mostly the easiest to finish. Masked the Moon’s background. Then layered on top the Town picture. This part was the most difficult, because we had to make the water look like it blended in with the boat picture and also with the cloning part with the dock and the tree. Then I got some help with my friends to get the whole picture black and white while having the boat colorized. Finally, I cleaned up the whole image and here’s the the picture! Ta Da!
