Animated Jellyfish Graffiti

Although I love the idea of understanding Photoshop, I can’t help but to have mini freak-outs while using this program of infinite possibilities.

People in my circle usually use photoshop to make their butts seem bigger, or to create inexpensive baby shower invitations.

I must admit, I wish I could use Photoshop for both, and more, but I’m too busy “freaking out”!

When Ryan asked us to create an animated graffiti post, I thought that it was a neat idea, who wouldn’t, right? But after the glamor set in, and I realized that I (I wish I could capitalize that i further) would have to create this out of nothing, I practically went into panic mode.

As any college student would, I recollected myself, and attempted-key word, to focus on the task. Of course, all of the different options, tabs, and scroll-down bars acted like a high school pep rally in my head. In respect to my existence, I steered into the safe zone when I decided to follow Ryan’s video tutorial.

This photo was taken by my fiancée at the Georgia Aquarium which is the largest aquarium on the Western Hemisphere. Last week my fiancée and I took a trip to Atlanta. Our main reason for travel was to help his grandmother move into her new home, but I was there to apply for a graduate program at Georgia State University. After our responsibilities were taken care of, we met at the aquarium for a date. The jellyfishes were his favorite, so I decided to use them.

While I am not religious, I must have prayed about four times when I realized that the assignment at hand wasn’t impossible as I had previously thought. However, I didn’t want to play with my luck, and decided to do a simple animation so that I didn’t look like this…

After speaking to Ryan about this post in class, I knew that I should not have been as scared as I was. Watching the eyes flicker on my jellyfish graffiti made me feel like an underachiever; it was sooooo basic

In light of my personal failure, I think that I want to give this assignment another try.

The question is, when?…
