I decided to do the Destination Post Card 3 STARS: Create a destination postcard for a setting from my novel World War Z. I decided to create this postcard to try to draw individuals to Yonkers, New York. I painted the picture as if Yonkers is the hot spot to be at.
Realistically this is far from the place anyone would want to be at. The battle of Yonkers was an absolute catastrophe, if any one event can be singled out as the point when zombies officially became the dominant species on the planet, it was Yonkers. The military with all their technology and high-powered machinery were no match for the hordes and hordes of zombies. But hey you should travel here anyway, I highly recommend it.
The Assignment I did was a 3 1/4 star assignment Destination Post Card this is where you had to create a destination postcard using any design software of your choice. I started by choosing an image of a beach from google images you then had to put some words over the image just like a postcard. I personally used the program GIMP for my assignment to create the illusion that my character Carson Gordon was on the sandy beaches of Siesta Key, Florida. At first I had an issue trying to super impose my character onto the background due to not saving my character from Hero Machine with a transparent background, but with some help from others I was directed to save my character with a transparent background to better use my character in any background setting I wanted.
I went ahead and removed all of Carson Gordon’s extra clothing in hero machine making him a little more cool when at the beach. I’m starting to get the hang of both the GIMP program and Hero Machine at least I think I am. Here is my created postcard below.
