This is the original directions for the assignment.
Combine two or more animials or plants to create a new creature. Use GIMP or other photoshop program to combine the images of animal. When your done post it in to your blog with some description of your new animal.”
This is the remix directions for this assignment.
Urban Dictionary defines “mustache” as: “A universal icon representing the epitome of authority and raw manhood… Resting just above the upper lip, the mustache is a beacon to all mankind that there is hope for this world and a bright future for all who have been gifted with this treasure from God himself.” So you know what do to. Like Beyonce says, “If you like it, then you should put a ‘stache on it.”
I chose to do this assignment as a remix because I figured that no matter what remix I would get it would be funny. I was 100% right. I chose a buck because one of my hobbies is hunting. I chose the polar bear because I have always been intrigued by them. They are such a cool animal. It was a fun experience being able to tie these two animals together. The cherry on top was definitely the mustache though. I found the coolest mustache that I could to put on the bear. Without the mustache it would not have been nearly as funny.
I started off by finding the best picture of a polar bear that I could that would be easy to put antlers on its head. After I found one I then looked for a buck that had antlers that would work for that bear. I then uploaded those pictures to pixlr. I then cut out the antlers on the buck. I then positioned them on the bear’s head. After that I found a mustache and uploaded it to the website. I then cut out the mustache off a guys face. I then positioned it just below the bear’s nose. Finally, I uploaded it to Twitter.
My main take away from this assignment was getting better with the cut out tool on pixlr. I think it is safe to say that I am fairly efficient with it. I believe that having that knowledge in my tool box will help me with other assignments. If I could do this assignment over I may have added a funny background.
