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.
