Mountain (Montibus) logo

I started off creating the triangles using the on the tools table. To get the star, you hold down the rectangle and click the star. To get the triangle you create the star and press the down button on the bottom right of the key board. Then copy and past that beside the first one.

 To get it to have rounded edges go to object, path, outline strokes. then go to effect, stylize, round corners.

 I made the size 20 pt

 I created two smaller triangles with it filled in black instead of outlined.

 

 To create a ruff effect go to the box that has different looks for the lines and chose the ruff edgy looking one.

 I made the rectangles with the rounded rectangle button then copied and pasted it. I did the same thing to get the lines at the top above the triangles. 

 to get letters in a rounded shape I selected  on the tools table and created a circle  to type around.

 This is the finished product. The pink line is the cut line. Montibus is mountains in Latin.

Godzilla Chicken movie poster

I started off with these pictures

To layer the pictures together, I clicked the picture I wanted to be over top, the building picture, and clicked copy.

 Then clicked the background picture and clicked paste.

 To make the mask I clicked this button  at the bottom right corner.

 Then press the arrow to switch the colors. It makes it translucent so you can erase the top picture but not the background picture.

 I used this to do do the erasing.

To adjust the size click the brush at the top left then I chose number 9 to start off with. Later used the Master Diameter to make it how small or big I needed it.

On the tools on the left side  this is at the bottom and I used it to make the red lazers.

 

 I did the same thing in the first few pictures for the explosion.

 My progress throughout.

 

I went to Pixlr.com to create the effects and add the words. I just clicked a bunch of things to get the picture to what I wanted it to look like.

    

This is the finished project/poster, the Godzilla Chicken.

 

Milky Way Couple

  • By using the Adobe Photoshop, I combined two different pictures to make an original picture the way I liked it.

  • I first started with these two pictures that I got from Pexles.com
  • To layer both of the pictures together I pressed select then pressed all.

  • Then I clicked my second picture, the couple, and clicked copy.

  • Then I selected paste so the couple picture would be layered on the milky way picture.

  • I wanted to erase most of the couple picture except for the couple so it would look like they were a couple under the northern lights. To do so, I clicked the small button on the bottom right corner, the third one from the left.  It creates a layer so that I can erase the first picture but not the background picture.

  • Using the brush tool  on the tool bar, I erased anything on the picture that I didn’t want. When I erased the picture, the picture behind it showed through.
  • I started outlining what I wanted to still be in the picture with the brush. I started off using the number 9 brush but then used the master diameter to choose the size if I needed to outline smaller sections.

  • This is my progress about halfway through the project. I just finished the outlining and started to erase the rest of the picture.

  • This is the finished picture. I made it smaller to what I wanted so it looks more realistic by clicking edit, transform then scale. I coloured in the orange circles by using the syringe looking tool   on the tool bar. it makes a custom colour to make sure you have the right colour then I filled in the circles.

Hybrid assignment

I used a picture of a giraffe and a flamingo from the website Pexels.com to make a new hybrid species that I call Fliraffe.

Using adobe photoshop, I removed the head of the giraffe and replaced it with the flamingo head. I cut out the heads by using the thing that looks like a lasso in the first picture. The brown box in the second picture helped me erase the giraffe head by blending it to the background. I also used it to sort of blend the flamingo head to the giraffe neck.

  

I needed to flip the flamingo head because it was a different way than the giraffe. I went to image and clicked image rotation then clicked flip canvas horizontal.

  

The flamingo head was too big for the giraffe so to shrink it I went to edit and clicked transform then click scale on the side of it. When shrinking the picture, you have to press shift at the same time or it will just stretch the picture and not actually shrink it.

Ladies and gentlemen, I introduce to you, the Fliraffe.

Bucket List

Everyone has a bucket list, each with different things they want to do on it. For mine, I have 6 different things each with different sizes. The bigger the picture is, the more priority of wanting to do the things on the bucket list.

Step 1: After reading the instructions of this assignment I got free stock photos from Pexels.com.

Step 2: After downloading the pictures into my google drive I went to BeFunky.com to make my collage. I chose this template and deleted some of the cells to make look like what I wanted.

Step 3: I got the pictures from my drive and put them into the places I wanted.

Step 4: I added a text box into every picture cell to say what exactly I wanted to do for my bucket list.

Hanging off a building is something i’d want to do because you would get a whole different view on something that other people would never see. I want to swim with a shark because its much better to brag about than just swimming with a dolphin. I’ve always wanted to see the northern lights and the milky way up close since forever. It’s one thing to see them from Vermilion but it’s a whole different thing seeing them first hand. Skydiving is something that is on a lot of peoples bucket lists but it would still be a great opportunity. Petting a wolf is like swimming with a shark, it would be a great conversation starter. Lastly, I want to travel the world to see everything. All the different cultures and festivals and people.

Word Craft: Sunrise on the Veld

Doubt

Doubt is a feeling of uncertainty or lack of conviction. Nearing the end of the story, the boy lost most of his confidence that he had gained before. He was uncertain of what to do and think when he found the dying animal. He was contemplating on whether to interfere with the course of nature or to leave it suffering, the way it would’ve been if he hadn’t found it. Wondering if it was the right thing to do or not.

 

Stoicism

Stoicism is the endurance of pain or hardship without a display of feelings and without complaint. The boy was grimly satisfied with his new stoicism. He found something that should be a hard sight to look at and he handled it pretty well with not displaying any pain or emotion.

 

Faitality

One definitionis an occurrence of death by accident, in war, or from disease. The other definition of fatality is helplessness in the face of fate. The knowledge of fatality. The boy realized what life had to be, he realized that that’s what living is. He couldn’t perform the smallest act of mercy, knowing if he did it wouldn’t be the way it’s supposed to die.  

 

Exulted

To exult is to show or feel elation or jubilation, especially as the result of a success. The urgency and the truth and the courage of what his voice was saying exulted him so that he began to sing again. The boy succeeded in many things throughout the story. He figured out that the world is what he makes it. He contains the world.

 

Superfluity of Youth

The definition of superfluity is an unnecessarily or excessively large amount or number of something. In the story superfluity of youth means being a wild thing, clean crazy or the joy of living.

 

Doubt

Doubt is a feeling of uncertainty or lack of conviction. Nearing the end of the story, the boy lost most of his confidence that he had gained before. He was uncertain of what to do and think when he found the dying animal. He was contemplating on whether to interfere with the course of nature or to leave it suffering, the way it would’ve been if he hadn’t found it. Wondering if it was the right thing to do or not.

Figures of Speech: Sunrise on the Veld

Personification

Having an inanimate object and giving it a human characteristic. The author used these in an attempt to create an image in our heads. The sun painting is an example of personification. While there are many other examples of personification in the story, I like this one most. It creates a vision in our heads of a sunset. Of the liveliness in all the colors that the sun paints on the sky.

 

Paradox

Sleeping but vigilant is an example of a paradox. A paradox is a seemingly absurd or self-contradictory statement or proposition that when investigated or explained may prove to be well founded or true. How can we be vigilant while we sleep. It’s a contradictory statement between something quiet and peaceful. We don’t know what goes on in the world while we doze off into another reality. And something where we need to be attentive in.

 

Irony

An intention or attitude opposite to that which is actually or apparently stated. An example from the story is debating if we should interfere with nature. The boy in the story was going to put the deer out of its misery by shooting it. He thought that was a compassionate thing to do. But it was his gun that did this to the animal in the first place. He shot blindly into the bush and didn’t go look for what he shot. He already interfered with nature.

 

Simile

A comparison between two things using like or as, used to make a description more emphatic or vivid. Felt years in his hands as if counting marbles is the best example of simile from the story. Marbles represent his age. His hands also represent the years of his life.

 

Metaphor

A figure of speech in which a word or phrase is applied to an object or action to which it is not literally applicable. An example from the story is he was a small boy again, kicking sulkily at the skeleton. The metaphor is going back to his younger self. When he was oblivious of the world around him.

An Emotional Landscape (Lvov) – Poem

My Encompassed Playground

 

If not in a dream, at dawn

With the dew still fresh on the grass

And on the swings being swung slightly by the wind

And drips of water falling down the yellow slide

 

Closely you can hear

The snails converse about eternity

And the murmur of each stone scorched by the sun

And watch the spruce trees dance with each other

 

We bade goodbye   
without handkerchiefs

no tears, such a dry mouth

I won’t see you again

 

At noon the park vanished
Like fainting maidens

I could not find my park again

Hidden in a circle of spruce trees
