The entire history of human expression, slightly abridged
Encouraged thoroughly by Dr. Garcia’s enthusiasm for last night’s gif poster and inspired by the awesome work going on over at Bowties and Skulls, I went ahead and re-giffed B&T’s “Gif to Fig” project.
First I took of screen shot of the fig in action:
Then I just painted over it in photoshop, using the colors from Adobe Kuler’s Base 17 color scheme, I painted in the books and B-Murge and the clock.
Originally, I was just going to make it a simple minimalist poster. But then, I decided, what the heck, let’s gif it.
First I used a gaussian blur on all of the layers in the project except B-Murge and the clock.
Then, I painted in the crack lines on another layer, a layer behind B-Murge so that it is his view of the world and not his awareness of himself–or his acute awareness of time–that has been messed with.
I also had the minute hand on the clock click forward a little, to show how everything can change in an instant, one of the powerful themes from this episode of The Twilight Zone.
I have to say, I love how this turned out. Psyched. Every time I make a project for DS106zone, it just makes me want to go make another project for DS106zone.
