In this remixed assignment I took an older post of mine where I made a minimalist poster and then hid waldo somewhere. The remix details can be found here, while the original poster assignment can be found here.
Because this assignment was minimalist, it is very hard to hide something, let alone a man dressed without camouflage. I decided to hide waldo in between the letter ‘n’. Here it looks as if he is hiding underneath a structure, to hide from viewers from the top. Too bad he doesn’t know how a 2D image works.
I used GIMP to hide waldo. I downloaded a photo of waldo and used the bucket fill tool to fill in the white space around him as the same color of the poster. I then cropped his image as much as I could so that I could fit him underneath. Changing his shape is then the final step, as I had to scale him to ridiculously small. In the end he’s only like 40 pixels tall.
