Progress on my final concept
After a talk with Phil today I realised that some elements didn't fit in with the perspective with the room such as the desk, it was originally too low, so by using the perspective grid it helped me understand my space a whole lot better. I also realised how adding something to the foreground directs the attention of the viewer to the space and it doesn't make the space look too distant to the audience as it had previously. Thanks Phil! The foreground element of the shelf would be a good place to put my hero prop (amulet) by resting on an object, an ornament in relation to the voodoo, superstitious scary vibe. At the moment the object on the shelf is starting to look like a miniature grim reaper which I think would add a nice effect to my space- it would signify the death of his fiancee. To reflect upon my character, I started adding voodoo dolls to the shelves and added more clutter to emphasize my characters motives.
I did want to originally experiment with other colours, other than green as I used intensively in my last project, however the colour does fit the mood really well. I was going to use blue but this gave a feeling of loneliness and sadness, something I didnt want to express entirely in my space. I think the use of green gives a mysterious vibe to the audience, and relates to the voodoo aspects of my character. But it also gives the feeling of melancholy which would express my characters mood.
I will look into adding more detail, more voodoo dolls on the shelves, more clutter and more lighting, and also adding the amulet to the object.
