Reading Poster Assignment

For this assignment, I made a reading poster. Although Mr. Beemis had already been used as the main example, I found this picture of him looking so cute and excited and decided I could pass it up.

Now, this assignment was a *little* too easy for 3 stars, so I ended up trying to colorize my picture a bit (it’s a skill I’m still working on).

Anyway, the poster really says it all. Reading is fun! Go do it! And if you’re the only person left on the planter for the love of Pete don’t break your only pair of glasses. Or get eye surgery. I don’t know. He had options.

Twilight Zone Venn Diagram

I really liked the idea of this assignment and thought that it could easily be applied to the episodes of The Twilight Zone that we’ve all been watching.

For some reason I did “The Invaders” instead of “Eye of the Beholder”, but I’m okay with that. I tried to take a more humorous approach rather than a serious analyses of all the contrasts and comparisons.

Surprisingly, it was a little difficult to make a first. I tried GIMP, then Photoshop, before I finally decided that Ink scape was the easiest program to use for this particular assignment. All in all, in didn’t take too terribly long to make, but coming up with the different similarities and differences took a while.

Animated Movie Poster

For this assignment, I made an animated poster for the Twilight Zone episode “Time Enough At Last“. This was my favorite episode so far, but it was also the most depressing so I ended up in bed afterwards and drowned out some of the pain with the ever timely humor of Lieutenant Data. Then I had to work.

This took a little longer than I would have liked it to, but as a wise boyfriend once told me yesterday “Just figure out how to do the layers and Google it before you ask me”. So, I eventually figured out that I could link all the frames of my gif in GIMP and thus scale them all at once, rather than painstakingly one by one.


I tried to use a climatic scene because I feel like that’s how movie posters do, ya know? This one was fun, but definitely challenging.

Call Black Mamba today for efficient evil doing.

Before I started working on the Twilight Zone assignments, I had to do this one first. What isn’t cool about female super villains, right? Here is the calling card I made for Black Mamba, an evil doer from the Marvel Universe.

You wouldn’t surmise it from looking at her, but her powers are actually telepathy.  I guess she just falls in the the whole “Snakes Are Sexy” trope. You know, evil woman seductress and what not. This was probably the easiest assignment so far to do, and it was easily done using layers in GIMP.
