For my third Assignment for my final project I chose to do another Design challenge for 3 stars. For this assignment I had to write out the name of my character, in not only a cool font, but a font that means something more than just the text.
I used Paint 2 to create this work of AMAZING art. I the word is pretty self- explanatory by now, but for those that are a little slower to first base… Doughboy is the name of my character. I used the font Big Casion in size 96. The reason I went with Big Casion is because it not only is a clean, and easy-going font, but it allows the reader to feel the word. This font is often used in commercials and many major marketing brands.
I opened up Paint 2, and started a new project
I then filled the background with white
I then selected the text tool and wrote out DoughBoy in Big Caslon
For this Design Assignment I had to create a word cloud that describes my character, for 4 stars. I chose the closest shape that they had available that looked like the doughboy. Finding words that described him was the easy part! Chubby, fluffy, giggily, fat, puffy, etc…
The residents of Pillsbury are again, the nicest people on the earth. They greet each other with open arms and big fluffy chests of dough. Every time they touch each other a little part of them practically stuck onto the other, making this one of the most tight-knit communities on the planet.
To create this word cloud I went to WordCloud . This allowed me to select from an array of shaped to create the cloud then insert my own words into it.
- Firstly, I chose the shape of little stick figure
- I wrote in words that described the doughboy
- Changed the size and shape of the words
- Made sure I liked the colors of the background and words (kept it basic)
- Saved to my PC
The assignment was called: Character Word Cloud, and the objective was to go to wordclouds.com and create a word cloud. I put in as many adjectives as I could think of, and then used some of the filler words they had to fill in the space. The shape I ended up going with was a price tag. I thought it was a bit cheeky, and would show off one of the things that I like to do the most, shop!
The story behind this picture is like I said earlier, I like to shop. But the words that I put on the inside don’t have anything to do with shopping. I described myself as best as I could, I put what I like to do (sleeping, laying down), and what sports I love to play and watch (backetball, soccer).
To create this piece of art I went to wordclouds.com, and clicked on shape first off. I was going to do the trophy, because I am a winner but decided to go with the price tag. I then chose the color scheme I wanted. I choose blues and whites, but then changed the background color to a pee yellow. Lastly I changed up the word list to describe myself.
The first picture is a picture of me that was taken at the beginning of the Fall semester with the Soccer team. The second picture is a morphed image of me into the Mona Lisa.
The reason for doing the Mona Lisa is because I went on to google, and looked up funny pictures. The Mona Lisa was one of the first ones to pop up, as soon as I saw it I knew it would fit perfectly.
I went to google and typed in “picture background changer” I went through a couple of videos of how to do it in GIMP, but I had already done that a few other times. I then came across this site called: http://funny.pho.to. I went to it, looked around, and saw they had the Mona Lisa background and became extremely happy! The rest was HISTORY!
The assignment was to create a tattoo that represents your personality type. I chose an infinity sign. The original picture is obviously the black one. I chose an infinity sign, because I feel as though that what ever you do in your life, life around you is still going on. For example, if the sign were a Mario Cart track… Where ever you chose to start you would find yourself going in an endless circle over and over and over again. This is why if fits me, if something wrong happens/ you have to learn to get over it and keep moving along.
- Red- when something goes wrong.
- Yellow- when life is good
- Green- when your life is healthy
- Blue- when life is calm
The story behind the piece is about last semester when I found myself super stressed out about a million different things. School, family problems, sports problems, and friends were all troubling me at the same time, and really negatively impacted me. All those problems add together and I found myself struggling to burst out of it. I found myself trying to figure out how to get of one thing, but it would only put me further back in the others. I finally made it to the end of the semester, and some things got better… This was largely due to the fact of me noticing to stop worrying about everything.
I created this piece by going to google and searching for a basic infinity sign. I then downloaded the sign onto my main windows computer, and opened it in paint. I then used the fill tool to change the inside color of the sign to red, yellow, green, and blue.
For this assignment I had to come up with a way to write my name in a cool way. I ended up using the Skia font, which is a futuristic looking font. I used the Paint 2 app on my MacBook to create this.
The story behind using this font was to find something that looked like the star wars writing, like in the credits. I cycled through almost all of the fonts on Paint 2, but couldn’t end up finding it or something close to it. The closest thing that I found to it was Skia, and decided to go with it.
I created this using the Paint 2 app on my MacBook. I first used the Fill tool to create an all white background. I then selected the text tool and dragged it across the whole background. I found the font I wanted to use and the began typing. I then center the text after I was done by clicking cmd + e.
