I remember when looking at the assignment at the beginning of class, I thought project 3 would be the hardest and that project 4 would easy. I was very wrong, it was surprising to me how easy it was to premiere pro and how it only took a few hours for me to figure everything out and put it together. When I was finished with it I actually felt like I created something good. The link to the video is below.
Now with Google Sketch Up I did not have much time to complete it the way I wanted to but I am not sure if more time would have really helped me in the long run. Being so use to games like the Sims I kept wanting it to work the same way and would press and button the keyboard and it would not do anything. The world I created was what I was looking for but putting the pictures, which of course I held off on, was rushed because I had no power. Also had no idea how long I would keep power for either. Creating the sketches when I first started really did help once I got into the program
I did this picture a few years ago when Conan O’Brien was getting fired from the Tonight Show. I grew up staying up really late to watch his show, so it was a big deal to me that would not get to watch that show anymore. It is a hobby of mine to take photographs and then put them in photoshop or paint where I then paint them. I picked this photo of Conan because I found it the most interesting with the monkey on top of him. The great thing about doing these photos is that it not require an expensive program, I have done all of them in the paint program that comes with computers. First thing I do is the background because it is the eastiest and simplest. The second thing I did was the monkey, picking out the colors is a hard part because you all the colors to blend together well. The last thing I did is always the face, it has the most details involve and really makes or breaks the image. I spend more time on the face then I spend on any other part of the image.
