Frustration & Dynamic Movement

Have a final composition, once more my words were frustration and dynamic movement. I figured that traffic in a city is rather annoying and frustrating while the light streaks and faint look of shattered glass could manage the idea of dynamic movement. Here are the images I used in the composition above:

Still learning all the bells and whistles on Photoshop but I think I'm getting the hand of masking, filtering, & the eraser tool. All the other things like layering, brush tool, & lasso tool I just built up on from this class.

Can't wait till the next project!

Just a life drawing of my roomate and her boyfriend playing World of Warcraft. I think I'm going to try and post something like this on a weekly basis just because...

3 Iterations of Frustration and Dashing Movements

Here are 3 different iterations of the current composition project I am constructing using two words previously given to me.My favorite one out of these is the first one with all the traffic.

Interiors at UNCG

First rendering of the semester: select a public interior on UNCG's campus and fully render using any media on an 11x14 piece of paper. Interior must have at least 3 scale figures in the composition.

The interior I picked was the atrium under the dining hall. This is a perspective looking from the entrance to the Spartan Market. The media I chose to use was watercolor and colored pencils on watercolor paper. I chose to leave the people in the interior whited out so they still give a sense of distance and scale without detracting from the interior.

Estimated Time Taken: 6-7 Hours

SYTYCD: Final!

This was the final So You Think You Can Draw assignment, to make a CD with the other SYTYCD assignments burned onto it along with designing a cover for the CD. I did mine entirely on photoshop with text, gradient, & brushes. I though the quote was appropriate for this class especially.

Kitchen Boards

A comparison board on our kitchen project that goes into more detail of the design with axon views, plan views, section cuts, cabinet elevations, & exploded cabinetry. This was an exercise in laying a board out to fit your concept.

Customize Your Island... Like a Puzzled City!

For the 12"x12" So You Think You Can('t) Draw, we had to do our custom piece in our studio kitchen as a focal point among the context of the kitchen. I fully rendered this so I could also use it for my board.

My greatest worry was about how dark the cabinetry is, but I think with the light walls and floors it looks just fine.
