Hi! My name is Laura Moon and I have been working on an animation in my technology class. I had to create a story based on a book, no longer copyrighted, or I had to make one up with my mind. Since I love the Harry Potter series, by J.K. Rowling, I decided to create a modified version of her novel. This project took me 4 hours and 25 minutes but I did not do this all at once. I made an action plan and followed this plan along with a schedule so I didn't have to do the whole animation all at once. It was hard creating it at first but after I got the hang of it, it became pretty easy.
Hold me down through it all (1)
For if you let me go
I might slip and fall
Don't want to go back to how I use to be
Hold me down through it all (5)
For when I feel you my emotions run wild
into the jungle to be free
Help me keep my sanity
For this DIY project, we were to find a creative craft using photos. I made it for my friend Abby, and she loved it! I found this idea on pinterest, then went to Michael's to gather the materials. I used a wooden A, mod podge, mod podge paper, and some cut out photos. I first covered the A with mod podge, then added the mod podge paper, but didn't put mod podge on the top. I then cut my photos to fit the A somewhat, put them where I wanted, then used the pod modge as glue. Finally, I brushed mod podge over the whole entire thing, and let it dry for a day.
Although this was not one of my best years academically (yikes!), I still had a pretty good school year. I slacked off a bit on the last semester but hey, that is what the smell of summer does to me. This year as a student, I felt I could have done way better. Although I went through many adversities and quandaries in this past year, I feel like I shouldn’t had let myself allow the toll my grade took due to those things. What was extremely valuable in my courses was the amount of learning that took place. I think it is a privilege to say that everyday I learned something new.
I created my avatar with two websites. One of them was www.tektek.org and the other was called www.ipiccy.net. Tektek.org was the site that I actually created my avatar on while ipiccy is just a photo editor. Some of the requirements and constraints could not be met with just tektek.org so I used the photo editor to change the avatar so that I actually met all of the requirements and constraints. The border around the avatar with the ornaments represents how my family and I have a party on Christmas although we are not Christian.
This is my Avatar. I have been working hard to complete this for my Technology assignment. In my Avatar I made sure I showed my personality and things that represent me. My Avatar was originally a sketch that I drew but i turned it into an animated one on an Avatar Creator website. Then I used a photo editor to add multiple photos to my original picture in order to show my personality. I used the best photos I could use that could best describe my personality while making sure it was not copyrighted. I hope you enjoy my avatar.
This is the avatar that I made. It includes the flag of China, which represents my culture. The character in the avatar represents and looks like me, and is saying "I love K-Pop!" The letters "BSGE" in the bottom right corner are the initials of the school that I attend. "BSGE" is written in white and blue because those are my school's colors.
When creating my animation I thought that my idea of using Winnie the Pooh and Piglet was creative and interesting. I thought that I didn't really have any difficulties other than taking my characters from the internet and then covering all the parts other than the character itself. I think that I did well with making the conversation between the two sprites a story that was well presented. I also think that the grade I deserve for the visual part of the assignment would be a level four, because I did include three hand drawn scenes (background).
