Unit 1: Cinematic Spaces 



Creative Partnership Archive


From Jake 

Hey Nadia, Hope the unit is coming along okay,

We are part of a 4 for our creative partnership as you probably know, and the green light review on the 11th of October requires us to present our active partnership, so any work that you have feedback on just post a comment and we will be feeding back to you :)

If you are unsure of who your other creative partners are, its Vikki and Jebb whos blogs I will post below :)

Thumbnail 40 is looking interesting :D

As you said, once you have added smaller details such as lamp posts and shadows it would appear complete. Some highlights would also bring these aspects to life :)

Perhaps you could also add a bit of depth of field within the environment so the background is blurred compared to the 'crisp' foreground? It would also add a better sense of scale to your world, and attract the eye to your one point perspective.

Maybe experiment a little more with this in your thumbnails, just a suggestion :)


From Vikki

Hi Nadia, your research looks nice and organised here! how are your thumbnails coming along? look forward to seeing your ideas :)


Hey Nadia, #11 and #13 and my favourites - I like how you have shaped the buildings to appear to be closing in over the viewer. I can see #13 being a good final piece!


Hi Nadia, 77 - 80 are looking cool! i quite like 77, it makes the room feel dusty and dry, very atmospheric :)


From Jebb

Thumbnails #1, #3 and #5 give a real post-apocalyptic vibe to the environment with the buildings 'crumbling,' whereas the warped surrealistic buildings of thumbnail #2 are very interesting


To Vikki


really nice Vikki! I like the way you designed the cave-like elements, the composition and the atmospheric tones fits in well with your overall image, Well done :D


Hello vikki :) I really like the composition in this image, the human form compared to the sculptured image of the foot does express proportion and the sense of distance and space very well. In terms of tones colours, it does create a great atmosphere and would look nice with added detail to the mountains in the background in the developmental process. I also reckon adding a bit of mist would compliment the mystery and suspense that this image creates.


To Jebb

Hi Jebb, have some really nice thumbnails going on here :)
thumbnail 46 and 48 shows a really interesting composition in terms perspective. I also love the designs in 59 and 62, could see it developing into a strong piece :D

These are the different variations of my second final concept of the tailor shop. Out of all of these images, I prefer thumbnail 89, as the added green colour adds more depth into the atmosphere and makes the image look complete.

These are my thumbnails for the Tailor Shop. I used a high angle in this series of images, to express the height and large empty space as it describes in the excerpt. When developing my thumbnails I started coming up with ideas of how I can exaggerate this further to make this reflect upon the unnatural events that occurs in this book. In the excerpt it mentions how the store rooms have no doors, and is filled with boxes piled high to the ceiling, I exaggerated this aspect of the excerpt, by towering box upon box, making the pile come out from one storeroom and into another. I added grey mist to reflect upon the quote 'filled with watery anonymous grey light' which used to describe the tailor shop.

'Train Station'

Previously when working with my thumbnails on the train station, I made the canvas too narrow, So in this set of thumbnails I expanded on it. I also changed the positioning of the snake to make the snake look 'train-like' in terms of the rectangular shape. I also added textures, shading and lighting to make the image looks complete.

Final Concept
'The Street of Crocodiles'
    

I tried adjusting the hue, to use different colours to this image shown in thumbnail 53 and 54 however I don't think any other colour would suit it which is because green refers more to the colour of a crocodile, and the area as a whole described in my excerpt, . So I went back to the original colour I used, and adjusted the brightness and contrast and saturation which led me to finish my final concept of the street of crocodiles.
