The first assignment I did this week was called “Create Your Own DS106 Wallpaper”. This assignment was worth 4 stars. Here are the instructions.
For this assignment I used the image editing software Microsoft Paint, and my final product is a composite of several images and text phrases. On the wallpaper I included, not only my own character, but also Stella Vaughn, a character created by my radio show group member Kelsey Roach.
My character, Billy Steel, is an alcoholic vigilante who was born in 1905 in Detroit. Billy spends much of his time hunting down gang members in his neighborhood and showing them justice by way of his shotgun. For this reason, I included in the wallpaper a portrait of Billy holding his shotgun.
Kelsey’s character, Stella Vaughn, is a sociopathic psychologist who was born in 1966 in Centralia, PA. Stella loves to explore the crazy minds of her patients in quite a messed up way. In the wallpaper I included a portrait of Stella with her bag.
