Project for University, with this task, we set out to create a cityport of our imagining, keeping the society, tech level and other factors in mind such as whether the city grew as a result of planned or evolved urban sprawl. The focus was to incorporate idea generation through thumbnails, iterations, plan views and overall scenes. I decided I wanted to create a city similar to that of the last of us as the idea of an overgrown, abandoned world interested me. These are some of my final paintings produced as a result.
Another Project when working at university. With this, we were tasked with designing a visual update for either fiddlesticks. I decided to go about this simerly to that of the cityport project whereby I began with thumbnails, before iterating with various designs and colour schemes, then the splash art. I found this hugely beneficial as it enabled my thought process and ideas to develop as time went on. This process is something I am keen to use for projects to come as a valuable way of developing ideas. I began working in greyscale to begin with as i found this process a simple way in which I could adjust my black and white levels using adjustment layers before moving onto colour. Throughout the process I learnt new techniques in how to colour the character in quickly by experimenting with layer types as we were under a limited timescale.
Whilst at home, I found the time to work on some personal work based on Spider-man. One key element that I wanted to work on was my ability to image bash as I found this a key area of improvement from my previous work. In order to gain more knowledge surrounding this area, I decided to research online via Youtube to gain inspiration and found various artists, each with differing styles and ways to go about the process. I found experimentation using multiple layer masks to create adjustments to alter the image to be a very effective way to produce work within a small time period.
Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order study:
Having recently completed the game during quarantine I felt inspired to produce some Star Wars work. I found this to be a great time to expand my knowledge of Photoshop using various brush packs and learn new techniques.
