p5 loading screen

  I made a loading screen for one of my projects. I chose to design it like this because I like the way it looks. One challenge I had was getting the square to move across the screen. I initially didn’t know how to do do this, but we had been taught how to accomplish this earlier in the course. To make the square move, I had to make a variable for the x part of the axis. When I programmed the location of the square, I made x appear in it. Then I programmed the variable to subtract a certain amount of pixels to itself (x = -75) which caused it to move right.

Side scroller (sort of)

I didn’t know what I wanted to make when I was assigned to program a side scroller, so I decided to make an “off-brand” doodle jump. Doodle jump is a mobile game where you jump on platforms higher and higher.

 

I searched doodle jump games on scratch to see what kind of programming I needed to do. I looked at the code to see what I had to program. Then, I started to program my game.

The basic idea was to be a blob bouncing in the sky on circles collecting tacos.

(But after all this I never finished)

Capstone scratch game

Recently for my capstone project, I’ve been working on a scratch.com game. It’s a puzzle game about trying to escape from a locked room with a single light source.

Scratch.com project

I loved making my scratch.com project. I decided to make a racing game called “THE LION RUN”.

See the project here: https://scratch.mit.edu/projects/127904244/

I had made sprites of a mountain lion, lion, and lioness on gimp.

^the lion and mountain lion sprites

I programmed many sprites ( Start button, the lions, ground, etc.) and tried to find a way to make them fit together to make a game. Though the game is not currently finished, I do plan to finish it.

Fiction writing and Drawing

Fiction Writing

I like fictional writing because It provides a world completely different from the one we live in. And when you’re the one writing the story, you can control what happens in this fantastical world. And when you control the characters to a story, you can experiment with character arcs, and see how good of a villain you can make or if you even need a villain.

http://www.writersdigest.com/writing-fiction-5-tips-to-get-more-creative and http://www.newyorker.com/humor/daily-shouts/eight-rules-for-writing-fictionare two good websites for tips on fictional writing.

 Drawing

I like drawing because I choose what goes on the paper in front of me. I can make a cat, dog, fish, bird, snake, spider, a landscape, or something completely abstract. I can experiment with shading and color. But I usually draw characters for my fictional stories so I can express them visually. Most of the time, I spend my time drawing characters. http://zestydoesthings.tumblr.com/ is a great website for seeing character drawings with good use of color and shading, and I take a lot of inspiration from them and many other artists.

My 5 goals for maker foundations

When I first started Maker Foundations, my five goals were:

• Making friends

•Learning more about programming on scratch.com

•Learning programming other than scratch.com

•Learning more about 3D printing

• Having fun

Learn More

My projects

My favorite projects so far were the scratch.com project and the makey-makey projects. The scratch project helped me learn some programming, which was very fun. The makey-makey project helped me learn some problem solving with working how to  set up everything correctly, and it was also very fun.
