The zine project is a fun and yet creative project in which each individual, must represent how we view technology. For instance, we have to interpret and display the following quote “Technology and creativity are powerful tools for fueling communication, inspiration, digital-storytelling and design.”
This is my first attempt of the Zine project and this is how I view technology. I view technology being the advancement of what the world being what it is now known today.
This is my second attempt. It incorporates how technology is an important aspect in many things. From the beginning of technology, technology is a never ending process. In which, technology would always advance and would also advance our world.
In my third attempt I went with the futuristic look. I view technology being a technical and digital concept.
This is me every time. I always have trouble sleeping and it’s my own fault, due to years of ruining my sleeping schedule. But then again I just might have insomnia, who know’s?
This is another that we all can relate. Especially with our phones, when trying to reach the charger before phone totally dies and shut downs.
Dr. Stone is another anime that I’m currently watching and I would say it’s one of my favorites so far. It’s about the world mysteriously turning into stone with the exception of animals. However, humans and sparrows were affected by a beam of light turning everyone into stone. And leaving the question to why it happened.
The protagonist Senku who is intellectual gifted awakens from his slumber of being a stone thousands years later. And now its ups to him to bring back human kind once again. However, in order for him to do that he has to rebuilt/create all of human kind achievements from the stone age to the present.
Senku eventual finds a cure to unpetrified humans from being a stone, but he was left to revive a person (Tsukasa Shishio) due to a situational event. Tsukasa exceed physical strength and he’s perfect for this new world, but he had a different view from Senku’s of reviving everyone. This then led them both in a war against Science, to having only worthy human in rebuilding society from scratch.
I’ve been watching Black Clover since my first year in college and it is still on going. Black Clover is about a world of magic, where people but not everyone have magic of an element or a specific power. Then at a certain age they go to a trial where a spell book chooses its owners. Then by becoming strong they show their ability to Captains in hopes in getting into a squad and become a magic knight. The squads are the Golden Dawn, Silver Eagles, Blue Rose, Crimson Lion, Black Bulls, Green Mantis, Coral Peacock, Purple Orcs, and Azure Deer.
In the current season the protagonist Asta, who doesn’t have magic like everyone else is able to draw out a anti sword out of his spell book giving him the ability to nullify most magic with a swing.
In this season a clan of elves who are more blessed in magic seek revenge when their entire clan was wipe out due to power long ago. However, one survivor lived, where they were reincarnated or say sharing a body with the Captain of the Golden Squad. This elf then went forward with his plan in taking revenge where it brought chaos, that all squads of the magic knights who weren’t “effected” to save the clover kingdom. This anime is good in my opinion but in the beginning it did took a getting use to the voice over of the protagonist (mostly yelling) , but its gets better later on.
Currently I’m watching the new season My Hero Academia. This anime is about a world of hero’s with unique powers (quirks), who faces villains that causes chaos. The Villains wants to rid the status of “Hero” in the world, so that they can run rampage, however hero’s rise up to stop their evil doings.
A short recap to the previous season onto the current season of the anime, All Might the number One hero went all in defeating the original All for one villain, a power (All for one ) that is able to take and give other people quirks.
(All Might power and will deteriorating while trying to keep his form)
This battle was All Might last battle and as the symbol of peace. His quirk All for One was passed down through generation to bring peace. And every wielder of this quirk has a duty to pass their power so that peace would remain. All Might already chose a successor name Izuku Midoriya were it’s now his duty to become strong and become the next symbol of peace.
For this project the process was quite simple, first we needed to search a decent size portrait of chose.
I chose Keenan Reeves an amazing good actor and I also used an anime character as my experiment test subject.
Once we have a portrait of choice we simply open it through Photoshop.
From there we had to save the picture and change the hue saturation of choice and hover to the filter tab above and onto filter gallery.
Here is where the fun begins, in filter gallery we have the choices of changing or adding effects to our portraits. And in continuing we use different frames for each different effect we want.
Then lastly we gather the frames and upload it to gihpy and edit slideshow duration and use the filter offered in the site.
Down below are my two examples of Keenan Reeves and an anime character.
In this assignment we are to choose at least two projects under The DS106 Assignment Repository. In the following link it provides many project ideas within different subject categories. From The DS106 Assignment Repository, I decided to chose the Chimeratic Composition under visual assignment category. From the description below photo shops skills would be needed in order to place three different pictures into one.
For my second project idea I decided to chose Turn a GIF into a FIG, under the Animated GIF assignment category. In this assignment your basically creating a GIF that runs backwards. In completing this assignment I’m sure using photo shop or even other programs could easily complete this assignment.
