I did a “sad” emoji, because they come in all emotions. I started by making the outline using the ellipse tool. I then found a light blue and put it as the outline and the fill, I then went to layer>layer style>gradient overlay. Blend mode to Darken and style to diamond and changed angle to -135. I then used the I then used the ellipse tool to make two black circles and the outline to the blue and fill to black. I then made to white circles for the middle of the eyes. I also added a couple of black dots on the middle, I used the line tool to make slanted eyebrows for the thing as well. I then used the brush tool to make the purple dots under the eyes. I used a ellipse to make the mouth an another ellipse for the tongue, I used the magnetic lasso tool to make the tongue only for the inside of it, I out a gradient overlay over the tongue at well.


Day One Hundred & Fifty-Eight

Today I worked on a personal video, I did one over the girl I babysit. I wrote out something and recorded it and then got all of the photos and videos we have and put them into iMovie and made a little clip. I chose the song beautiful birds to go in the back ground.

Day One Hundred & Fifty-Six

Today I started my end of year video. I go tall of my content onto my desktop to make it easier to import onto iMovie. I have 10 photos of my work, 2 clips of me working, transitions, background music, and even silly little things in there to give it some interest. I made it about 1 minute and 6 seconds long because that is how long my audio is when I was recording on the camera. I have worked with iMovie before but this is probably my favorite video I have created, most likely because it was silly, cute.

Day One Hundred & Fifty-Five

Today I printed out my poster for the end of the year, I recorded for my video and made my photos JPEG. I wrote out all of what I am going to be saying on my video and  typed it and then recorded it, I look goofy of course. I also found all of the pictures I want on my video, of the work I have done in the class, an dI saved them as JPEGs. I have everything I need for my video now, all I have to do is out it together.

Day One Hundred & Fifty-Four

Today I finished my end of year poster, I did the VHS glitch I was working on yesterday but with a different photo. I was working with a photo and put my name in it but you couldn’t really read it so I started over. I got another photo of myself and did the same thing I did to the other one and decided I was just going to sign the bottom. I used the wacom tablet and signed my name and then made it smaller for the bottom of the page.

I started with a photo of myself and I used a font called game over, and put play in the top right corner and using the shape tool I put a triangle. I then merged all of the layers together and duplicated it four times. I then made all but the first two  invisible and double clicked it, I checked off the green and blue colors in the layer style. I then double clicked the third layer and checked off just the red. On the fourth layer I created a hue/saturation layer on it, I changed saturation to 100%. I then applied a clipping mask on it and a vector mask on the third layer. I filled the vector mask with black using alt-left click. I then clicked M and selected certain areas where I wanted to reveal the mask, and filled those in white.

I then then created a new layer and filled it white. I wen to Filter>Filter Gallery>Sketch and selected Halftone Pattern, changed size to 2 and contrast to 2. I then double clicked the layer and and applied the blending mode: Overlay and opacity: 25% and unchecked the red and blue channels. I then duplicated the texture layer and then use Control-T while holding Shift to rotate it 90° and resize to the borders. Double Click on the layer and set the following settings: Blending Mode: Normal; Opacity: 15%, and unchecked the Green and Blue color channels. Click U and select Rectangle Tool. Then create a shape with the following settings: Width: 1800 px; Height: 120. Right Click on the rectangle layer and select Rasterize Layer. Go to Filter > Noise > Add Noise and use the following settings: Amount: 400%; Distribution: Uniform; Monochromatic. Go to Filter > Blur > Motion Blur and use the following settings: Angle: 0°; Distance: 20 px. Go to Image > Adjustments > Brightness/Contrast and use the following settings: Brightness: 150; Contrast: 100. Use Control-I on the rectangle layer to invert the colors of the noise texture, and then change the Blending Mode to Color Dodge. Duplicate your noise stripe layer a few times and move it, holding Shift, to different places. Create a new layer using Shift-Control-N, and Fill it with black. Go to Filter > Noise > Add Noise and use the following settings: Amount: 400%; Distribution: Uniform; Monochromatic. Now add the Patchwork effect using Filter > Filter Gallery > Patchwork and use the following settings: Square Size: 0; Relief: 0. Go to Image > Adjustments, select Threshold, and set it to 240. Double Click on the layer and use the following settings: Blending Mode: Screen; Opacity: 100%. Uncheck the Red and Blue channels. Now you will need to Duplicate the layer, Check the Red and Blue channels, and Uncheck the Green channel. Move this new layer, holding Shift, 60 px to the right. Create a new layer using Shift-Control-N and Fill it with black. Change the Fill option to 0%. Double Click on the layer and select the Stroke parameter. Use the following settings: Size: 25 px; Position: Inside; Color: Black. Now you need to rasterize the layer style: Right Click > Rasterize Layer Style. Go to Filter > Blur > Gaussian Blur and use the following settings: Radius: 4px. Now you will need to create color correction layers to make our image look more “VHS”. Go to Layer > New Adjustment Layer > Curves. Duplicate your curves layer and put it above the first layer. I changed the curves to the way I wished. Now Double Click on the curves layer and change the Opacity of the curves to 35%. Double click on the second curves layer and select the standard Photoshop preset “Strong Contrast”.
