So far this trimester I haveworked on two very different projects. One of those projects was my carving. It was difficult at first to come up with a design I wanted to make a carving of. After I had chosen the Hamilton logo, it was difficult to get the logo to print correctly, and I ended up editing the photo in photoshop. However, even though I know how to use photoshop, it was hard to put my name in the design because the text for my name was an individual thing, and not connected to the design itself. After a few mistakes, though, I finally got the design printed how I wanted it. I learned that in order to get a lot of difficult projects to work, you sometimes have to use trial and error, which is not only true for the carving project, but for the house I built in Minecraft as well. In that project when I was building the uderground part of the house, I learned that what I had invisioned it would look like just wasn't possible in the Minecraft world, and I had to rebuild it a few times to get the look I was going for. So far this trimester I have really enjoyed building in Minecraft, but for the next part of the trimester after I finish the Minecraft build I am currently working on, I would like to work on something different, maybe something that is realted to photography or the 50th anniversary of Chute.
This was the house I built in Minecraft in December. I didn't really know what I was building until it was done, so a lot of this build looks a little random. I designed it so that most of it was underground, so I could add way more rooms and not run out of space. I put a main room, a bedroom, and two other rooms that don't really serve any purpose. I didn't really run into any difficulties with making this house, mostly because I had just made a town in Minecraft in November. My favorite part of this build is the roof, because I had never made a roof that looks like that before. I learned how to make a roof like that by looking at other people's Minecraft builds, and experimenting until the roof looked the way I wanted it to. All in all, I am really happy with how the build turned out.
