    My First Book

    For this assignment, I did quite a bite of planning before putting it all together. I looked through many different types of pictures to put on the cover. I finally made up my mind with this one; I loved the way it outlined a natural woman’s body. Then I found a blank book through Google image. I used Photoshop to put it all together. First, I used the Lasso Tool to cut out the body. I wanted to have the a curvy edge around woman’s body. Then using the Text Tool, I wrote the title of the book. So without further ado, I introduce my first book!

    My Motivation

    For this assignment, I used Photoshop throughout the entire process. I started by looking for motivating picture through Google. Once I found one I was happy with, I edited the lighting in the background picture. I then used the Text Tool to write the poster. It seemed unfinished, so I added the vertical bar at the end of the words. I actually really love the way this poster looks!

    All the Information

    I realized through this assignment that I need to work more on my character and developing who she is. I started by reviewing all of my information that I have written about Kira Villiani and collected her keywords. Using Word Clouds, I went through quite a few different designs. I even tried to get the words to make a K, but it did not work. I then chose the color scheme and the background format. To be honest, I am not super happy with the way it turned out.

    For this assignment, I chose to use my character’s name to create her logo. Using Cool Letters, I started the by looking through all the background options. There were a few that I was torn between but ended up going with beautiful one. I then went through the font styles and decided on a pirate looking one; I thought the contrast went really well with the background. Once I had completed these last few steps, I went through the color options for the lettering, the shadowing and the width of the bordering for the name. Then I was finished! I really love the way it turned out!

    Sunflower from My Past

    I love tattoos! If I had more money I would be covered in tattoos, that is why I chose this Design Assignment. Sunflowers have been my favorite flower since I can remember. When I was very young, my mom let me plant my own sunflower garden. So I picked out the super tall seeds because I wanted to make a sunflower fort only for me (I have a big family, so having my own space was super exciting)! And it worked! It took a long time for them to grow to the correct height, but I was able to tie the flower heads together for my fort. It made a…
