This was definitely one of the most difficult assignments, but I knew I wanted to accomplish it. I was so intrigued by the prompt, and I really wanted to do this as one of my visual assignments this week. It took me a while to figure out how to make the gif itself, but the various tutorials were really helpful. 

I am very grateful to my friend for modeling for me and allowing me to take so many photos to capture the right ones. The most challenging part of this was working with Gimp to resize and format the photos in order to create a gif. It took a lot of control z-ing and re-saving in order to get the perfect gif. One of the hardest things was making sure the two photos layered over one another accurately. I had to resize and crop them so that the visuals lined up correctly.

I’m pretty happy with my results, especially because this was the first gif I’ve ever created. I also liked my visual itself. I think it was a cool concept, and I’m really glad that I took the challenge of this prompt. It wasn’t easy, but I really enjoy the finished product.
