Gif the portrait

Well, I must admit this was a big challenge. I did not really understand the process and I am still not sure I did it according to instructions.

I think I managed to get the required size and mix elements of the portrait as requested. I cannot fathom why the size but here it is,

Animated gif by @gifadog ‘Bark like Cogdog’

It started as Jonathan’s Worth lovely portrait of Alan Levine,

I then wanted to find a way to have the portrait somehow emerge from this animated gif I made from a video posted on Twitter yesterday,

Animated Gif by @gifadog ‘Educational debate on the web’

My idea was to suggest from the image:

“You can either fight like dogs or be like Cogdog when you think about the web.”

I wanted to follow on from the ideas of the previous post about Aaron to say the Internet is both-and not either-or. Yet another #big fail. I cannot see how to combine the two gifs….yet.

I made a huge portrait gif just because I can an posted in Gfycat. Check it!

Here are a few examples of the stills I made for the gif. I am unsure why we had to save them but I did.

In conclusion, it was fun. I do feel like I have missed an important learning point about the process. Any feedback welcome, did I get the point of this assignment?

How to break up with a friend

So I’m in the process of doing this ds101 assignment when this gnawing feeling is at the root of the person in this photo.

This person is someone I would like to consider my best friend but in reality over the last two years I have felt as she has sucked. Now  a little background would be nice. We have been friends since 10th grade and just never sepreated. Although I have had plenty of other friends in between and so has she, but we have always been there for each other. Well me so more than she has for me.

So it had upset me a great deal when it was her turn  to return back some emotional support which she was unable to do, due to the fact she didn’t want to think about. Now, gee I do not if I should think to myself, that this person cares so much about me that my pain is her pain which is why she could not cope with my pain… hmm. Interesting thought. However when I told her how I felt and resented her for it, she barley did anything to change. Which is why I am at the point within this six month period to essentially break up with her. Breaking up with a close friend is like breaking up with a boyfriend. And quite frankly, I was never good at that so I usually waited for them to piss me off to tell them off, making things pretty awkward afterwards. I wish there was a simply answer as what to do, but I can not living with this as if it is okay, we have simply grown apart and we just aren’t interested in the same things. I tried to slowly let us drift apart, but I am horrible at that, because if I love you, you will feel the love and if not, then I am just cold and it is obvious. It is not that I can’t forgive but the fact that she wasn’t there for me in my darkest time and did change anything substantially truly hurts and well call it high standards but these are the facts.

This should be her face when we friend breakup. (She doesn't know I am using this for the purpose of this blog)

My Deniro-Esque creation

In class we were asked to make a portrait of some sort. I chose some of the pictures in class and some I got on my own. The people I had used were John Oliver (Comedian), Andy Warhol (Artist) Pablo Picasso (Artist),  and Stan Lee ( Comic Book Legend). The result I got was surprising […]

For some reason it ended up looking like some form of Robert Dinero. Maybe that is a good thing but it certainly was not intentional.

All the people in this photo I look up to in some form or fashion. Whether it is for making me laugh as times are sometimes bleak. Or writing inspiring things and creating worlds of amazing fantasy the men who I made this picture of inspire me. And that is why I will cherish this artwork forever.

 

My final reveal of an inspiration

This is the finish product of my portrait! I used Photoshop CS6. I basically kept it simple with a color change of the background, using the pain bucket. Then I used text and typed “inspirational” in a green color and hot pink mixed with blue. I made the text move by using the cursor move option Read More →

This is the finish product of my portrait! I used Photoshop CS6. I basically kept it simple with a color change of the background, using the pain bucket. Then I used text and typed “inspirational” in a green color and hot pink mixed with blue. I made the text move by using the cursor move option and made the background color flash by using the timeline for animation.
