Original Assignment

Comic Book Effect created by Briana
Take a picture and experiment with the "Halftone Effect" in some photo editing software to create a comic book effect. There are lots of tutorials on Youtube and Google.

Remix Card: "Subtle Switcheroo"

Take an assignment and alter it very slightly. Make one small change or multiple changes. Just make sure they aren't too obvious. Think about those "side-by-side photos in magazines, can you spot the 10 differences between the two?" type deal. Think about letting your audience know how many changes there are so they can look for them all. You'd be amazed at what people notice and what they subconsciously choose to overlook!

Visual Personal Project: Comics Via Photoshop

One of the past assignment options we had was to create a comicbook effect. There’s a video tutorial for GIMP (via Brian Short’s blog). However, I didn’t use GIMP for this assignment because it’s lacking some useful features that will let me get things done faster for …

A Night at the Moth!!!!! (comic book effect)

So I started by adding comic book effects to a few different pictures, but most of them looked better in the original. Or, if not better, they weren’t particularly compelling as comic book pictures.

They were all photos from last night’s Moth, so I decided to combine them all into …

Captain America at Work

Of course, Captain America would choose the BGY-11 as his background. They're both as American as apple pie.
