Using what you've learned about making and altering images and animated gifs, create at least two versions of a single character's image, or two separate gif-animations of the same character. Your two images or animated-gifs should be clearly expressing a different event or emotion. Hint: Use the animated gifs I have placed in the course locker. See links to "local versions" in last section of this page.)

Create a short dialogue using these two (or more) images. Make the change dramatic.
When you change images, remember to indicate whether the new image should become the new default.
You can use smiley faces, drawn in Illustrator. You can scan in two or more drawn images.
Or you can use or modify some of the clip art selections linked here. Remember you can alter them using Photoshop, Illustrator, or Fireworks. You may want to use layers for changing details of a larger unchanged picture.
You may work on multiple images for your existing contest character file if you prefer.
