Remixing movie poster

http://assignments.ds106.us/assignments/create-a-silly-movie-poster/

For this assignment I chose to use one that I had already done as requested and remix it. I chose to do the silly movie poster that I had done where I had Jason Bourne and Kim Kardashians with the title He’s Just Not That Into You.

Then I decided to do this one as my second remix assignment. I got the remix “stuffy art critic” so I am going to critique my own work: the colors come together to make a certain je ne sais quoi and make it pop. The use of black and white exaggerates the colors used in the picture. I throughly enjoy how one subject takes more space than the other. Overall this is a fantastic piece and I love it.

Game of Thrones remix

http://assignments.ds106.us/assignments/create-a-game-of-thrones-house/

For this assignment I chose to do the remix button for it. I had to make a Game of Thrones house siglia and with my remix had to “stache it” which I took to meaning add a mustache to the house siglia. I used the website http://www.jointherealm.com/ which is a family arms generator for the show. I used my surname as my house name and chose a mustache as the house seal so I met the “stache it” remix requirement. Then I added “the stache is strong” as the quote to go with it which I thought went well with the mustache icon. I liked the maroon color that was a choice so I used that as the color for the mustache. I think that it turned out very well.

Your Love for Your Pet

This was a great assignment because I got to focus on one of my favorite things- my yellow lab named Thor. I may be a little biased but I think he is one of the cutest things on this earth. He such a sweet and goofy pup which makes him an A+ dog in my book. I love him to death and have a boat load of pictures of him so it was hard to choose just a few for this collage. Some of the pictures are just regular pictures but some like the one with the Christmas tree on his face are from Christmas. One of them was from the week we first got him and he was such a cute and squishy baby. I love this dog so much so this was an easy and fun collage to make.

Game of Thrones Sigil

I am a huge GOT fan, so this was a great assignment to do. I made the sigil for my character Benjamin Agos This is my finished sigil:

I used his last name as the house name because I think it is a pretty strong name. The sigil always features the surname and I just love his so it was great to use that. The icon is some sort of bird that I thought was really cool from the website. I modified House Tully’s motto of family, duty, honor to duty, honor, law, because Benjamin is big on being an honorable person and holds everyone to the standards of the law. It was great to use this assignment and be able to bring a little more depth to my character.

Shadow of a Doubt

Shadows are fun things to use when taking photographs. I found this amazing picture online at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oPQge4ib4WI.

I think this is an amazing picture because shadows can be used to show what the time of day is but these shadows show years in the past. These shadows show what these two people were in their past. They were both dancers. They may have performed for hundreds and possibly thousands of people and must have loved what they did. Now sadly they are older and cannot perform like they used to. They are bound to the canes and use them to get from place to place. This haunting picture uses shadows to show how life used to be for these two and how much has changed over time for them.

Who Said What

This was an amazing assignment to do. I took three of my favorite spy movies and created something that I think is really special. First I took a still from the movie Get Smart that has to be my favorite scene in the entire movie. At the beginning of the movie it shows us that Max Smart had a weight problem in his past. In this scene he is having a dream where he reverted back to his old weight and the guards give him a cake that he is eating. This scene never fails to make me laugh. I then took a quote from the movie Spy think Melissa McCarthy is amazing in this movie so I just had to take a quote from it. I used the quote: I look like someone’s homophobic aunt! I then gave James Bond the credit for the quote. All in all I am very proud of how it turned out:

Love at First Shot

Hugh and Martha have been by each others side for as long as they can remember. They met one day at a coffee shop when someone mistakenly took her drink and he offered to buy her a new cup. They sat in that shop for hours talking and laughing the day away. They married on a sunny day in April 1961. Fifty six years of being by each others side and nothing has changed between them. They originally met and settled down in London, she an actress, he a successful architect. In 1970 they moved to France to follow Martha’s acting career. After ten years in Paris they moved back to England, because it just wasn’t the same in a new country. Together they have four kids and eleven grandchildren. They wish they could see their family more often, but different things and events moved family members all over the country. This photo was taken on their fifty fifth wedding anniversary. Life for Martha and Hugh couldn’t get any better.
