I wanted to make something creative since I learned how to make GIF with Photoshop. First I was thinking about making a song lyrics, then I realized It will take a long time to create the GIF, I also have final exams for other classes, but it’s not impossible to make GIF with a song lyric. Then I start thinking about something small, my daughter birthday is coming up let’s make a gif for her birthday. To make this Gif first I choose color backgrounds then right color text. Then I choose the Timeline from the window. I have to make a sentence with these words so I had to maintain a sequence with the timeline pictures from first to last one. I also changed the time between the images. Then I save this file from the options save for web. Then I copy the link of the GIF and pasted here.
It was such a great semester for me, another great thing about this semester is CT101 class and our favorite professor Ryan Seslow. I am going to graduate next semester but in my whole college life never found a professor like Ryan. He listens to students, one of the great qualities of Professor Ryan.
Things I loved This Semester
Gifs From Scratch
I never had an idea before how to make gifs professor Ryan taught us how to make gifs file different ways. Now I can make gifs my own. Here’s the gif I made
Here’s the other one
FUZE and MIXAMO
Another clever way to make a 3D character is FUZE. Fuze has lots of option to make characters. When you create a character in Fuze you can upload that character on Mixamo another helpful tool to make movements for your character. Here is the video I made with Fuze and Mixamo.
Own animation Gif
I made this monster character with Adobe Illustrator in my other class FA 284, then I had to make 5 seconds video with this character, which was very hard, here is the gif that I make with my 5 seconds animation.
My other website
I also made another website in my Final Project class it’s called newyorkthecapitaloftheworld.com. I made this website from a template call Phantom from html5up.com. Then I made changes in the template as per my website requirements. My website is about New York City, I used a lot of pictures on this website and all of them my own pictures and I took these pictures different times and places.

Thank you, Professor Ryan, for teaching us useful staffs to create a digital story.
This semester I took another class called Final Project. I am majoring communication technology so I choose to make a website for the final project. I wanted to make a responsive website for New York City. I was looking for ideas about how I am going to start then I found a website called html5up.net where I can download the templates and make changes as I want. I choose Phantom one of the popular template on that website.
After downloading the template I start changing the fonts, pictures, and logo of the website. The template had only one additional page, but I made around Nineteen pages and connected with the links. Here’s my website in pictures
I have a passion for photography, don’t get that much time to explore. I came to New York 2008 since then I visited lots of place in New York City. I went to the Metropolitan Museum a few times, the Natural History Museum, Central Park, the Times Square, Financial District, Bronx Zoo, Coney Island and many more. I take pictures everywhere I go, I used to have a Sony Cyber-Shot which was a great camera, the picture quality Sony was great, then I used a Canon DSLR camera with two changeable lenses. Now I don’t carry any cameras anymore, cause now smartphones have enough resolution to take a beautiful picture.
I had always curious how people make cartoons, what they do, how hard or easy it is? I got all of my answers in this semester. I took a Fine Arts class, where I had the chance to learn about Adobe Illustrator, Adobe Photoshop and Adobe After Effects. Until Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop I was doing pretty well but when came to After Effects it wasn’t going well, everybody in the class were very frustrated to make only 5 second go animation. FIVE SECONDS are nothing when we watch cartoons. Now I have the answers of all my questions about making animations its never so easy to make animations, need lot of patience, art work skills, time and more.
This monster you are seeing in the scene it was from my Illustrator project in the class. When our professor asks us to choose one of the characters from the projects we did I choose this monster, I choose a hard project to do because I wanted to learn from this project. Professor first showed us the regular moving tools how to do the actions with our character which I felt like little old way of making animation, then she showed us puppet pin tool which is very easy to use but hard to control when you don’t the puppet pin right place. After all the struggles finally, I was able to make 5 seconds video. It
I created this movie by using FUSE and MIXAMO, also used iMovie and QuickPlay to edit the movie. First I choose a face of the character, then hands, legs and hair, also I chose a dress that go along with the character. Now my character is ready, I already had an account with adobe so it was easy to move my character to MIXAMO. In MIXAMO there is thousand of options to how you want to move your character. I have experience working with Adobe After Effect and I know how hard it is to move a character on place to another, but here we can find thousand of different movements. I choose few of the fighting actions movement to make it a bad-ass like Angelina Jolie in Tomb Raider.
It wasn’t hard to make this movie but I have idea to make a movie little longer than this one and it will make more senses.
Never heard about vapor-wave before, but kind of like this new idea how to add different pictures together and create a new picture. It works great with only transparent images. In this image, I was trying to explain that nowadays we are having fewer trees and more machines. We got tons of electronics staffs in our everyday life, cellphone, tablets, computers, TVs, speakers, smartwatch, and more. We are getting away from nature day by day but we are not realizing that. Our everything life starts with the alarm of the cellphone and end with browsing social media when going to bed, which is alarming for our society.
A website without navigation makes no sense. So, I just added three menus in my website. Now I will explain how I did it. First, I went to my website backend mohammedmhoque.com/wp-admin, then I hoover over on the option Appearance on the left side of my website backend, another sub-menu will come up and I selected Menus from the option.
I born in Bangladesh and cricket is one of the favorite sports in Bangladesh. Cricket is almost similar to American baseball game. I was very passionate about cricket since childhood and also played cricket more than ten years when I was in Bangladesh. There is only 1o-12 countries playing cricket internationally around the world, and Bangladesh is one of them. There was only about few countries were playing internationally when the one day international(ODI) started around 1970s. Bangladesh get qualified to play cricket internationally on 1998 and it was memorable day for all Bangladeshi people. So its been more than twenty years Bangladesh playing cricket internationally. I used to watch cricket live in the stadium, now I am very far from Bangladesh, so I watch cricket online now. I watch all kind of cricket matches, but I try not to miss any Bangladesh cricket match. Also I have a apps to see the live scores of any match anywhere in the world. Lot of people thinks cricket is a boring game because of the time, but I think if you know the cricket well it wouldn’t be boring anymore. Also there is short form of cricket its call 20-20 which is also exciting and thrilling to watch. Although Bangladesh is playing for years but Bangladesh never win World Cup yet, I hope Bangladesh will win the World Cup one day and that will be the happiest day in my life.
Today we learned how to remove staffs from photos. I choose a photo of the Eiffel Tower to do this project. We used Photoshop to make changes in the photos. First I remove the world Paris and then I remove the birds flying on the sky. Then I add the Paris word behind the Eiffel Tower and also added text top of the Eiffel Tower. Also, remove text from the bottom of the image and write our class name. It doesn’t look great or I should pick something else but at least got the idea of how to remove staffs from the picture and add in a picture.
