1) When I first came into this classroom, I was COMPLETELY lost as to how to use Photoshop. Within the first week, I had already gained basic understanding on how to use the program. Within 2 to 3 weeks, I was able to start doing my own things using the resources that the tutorials had taught me. From then on, I became pretty good at managing the program. I think part of what helped me do it so easily was that I explored it on my own time at home. My MacBook came with Photoshop already installed, so after learning the cool things I could do with the program, I would use it at home. Ultimately, I was skeptical about taking this class because I’m more of a drawing kind of art student, but I ended up really enjoying it! I looked forward to this class every day.
2) My favorite project that I completed was the cartoon project. This was where we were supposed to insert ourselves into a cartoon world. I’m a huge fan of Minecraft, so I put myself into an environment where I was being chased by a zombie and a creeper in a Minecraft world. My friend liked it so much that she had me make one of her in a Minecraft world, which I thought was funny. I used new tools in this one, and I enjoyed learning how to use them in a fun way.
