Week 3 Finalized

Finally getting into the meat and potatoes of this theme and its quite exciting. The only one issue I had with this week was with the AV club assignment. Many of those are TV shows, and to truly and fully understand the themes and plot of those stories you need to watch multiple episodes. I understand that the work needs to be spaced out, but if I hadn’t had already seen Burn Notice I would say that that assignment would be unfair for someone who hasn’t seen any of those TV shows. To then add watching a movie on top of that is just pouring salt into the wound.

Besides that, here is all the art for this week.

Three daily creates are listed below.

If you would like to meet the new secret agent in town, he lives over here and is available most weekdays.

If you wanted to know how he looks like, here is the only declassified photo of him.

Week Two Down the Drain

Another week down and boy was there some work to do. Installing more things, doing more assignments, doing daily creates really start to take a toll towards the end of the week.  But I survived so that alright.

Week Two Art

This week I made some pretty interesting art pieces. Here are some of my featured pieces from my daily creates.

I need to stop looking at daily assignments like this as a chore but instead an opportunity to have fun and be creative.  That’s probably my the hardest part of a daily assignment like this.

The Assignments

For my three assignments I chose to make a buzzfeed quiz, a wanted poster, and a scene poster. With so many choices of topics and probably thousands of different assignments to choose from the it was really difficult for me to find something.  This much freedom is sometimes hard to handle and will probably take some time to get used to.

Here is a link to my Scene Poster

Here is my BuzzFeed quiz

And finally comes my wanted poster

Create An Assignment

For my creation I was given the web category. I decided to use Google’s quick draw neural net guessing game as an assignment. This may sound super easy, however drawing with a track pad under a time constraint is quite difficult and even Google wasn’t smart enough to figure out some of my drawings.  At the end of the assignment you should share your drawings for everyone on twitter to see and or make fun of your poor trackpad drawing skills.

The assignment can be found here and this is my best attempt.

 

 

Week One in Review

The first week of class will always be hectic and is even worse in a class that you never truly step foot in.  This class is not like any other I’ve taken before so there will be a learning curve even though I have previously taken online courses.

So far in this first week, I have made my first tweet,

my first YouTube video which took about 9 takes to do. I never knew how hard it is for dogs to and people to interact on camera together.

I also added 5 pictures to flickr which are mostly of my dogs and cars.

I also posted for the first time on SoundCloud

Nothing in this first week was too difficult. Everything was pretty streamlined all the way from setting up accounts to using wordpress. WordPress is pretty easy to use and surprises me how anyone could really find it difficult. I’m sure there is more technical things you can do with it but just posting text and embedding media is pretty self explanatory.
