This was the first project where I created everything entirely on the computer using found images and manipulating them in photoshop. It was extremely difficult arranging everything at first because I didn't compose the original images and I lack experience with photoshop. After a while however, I was able to pretty successfully achieve the effects I wanted with most of my final images.
|This was one of my favorite pieces to come out of this project.|
Some of the images reference interaction within games while others, such as "Message Not Received" and "Appear Offline" refer to online interactions outside of the games themselves. For those unfamiliar with the symbols and concepts I used, here is a breakdown of what some of them mean:
Emotes: Commands that make the player's avatar express specified actions or emotions (e.g. /dance will make the player's avatar dance)
*symbols are from the game FFXIV: ARR and are not universal
|Player Not Found|
|Player is Busy|
|Player is AFK(away from keyboard)|
