Digital Painting: Production Art - Lizard Kiosk

Today in our digital painting class, we did a mini project that involved picking two pieces of paper from a box, one with an object and the other with an animal/plant. We then had to design the object we'd picked, inspired by the animal/plant we'd picked. My object was a kiosk and my animal a lizard. We then had to do research and thumbnails, as seen in the top image, before refining our idea. This is my completed lizard inspired kiosk.

Developing Octavia: Houses and Other Buildings

Some more rough ideas for buildings and structures in Octavia, this time looking at various designs for homes and other buildings. Each building has a firm, wooden base with wooden poles and beams built onto it to create the shape of the building, before a material like sack cloth is fitted over the poles, making a tent-like structure. I still like the idea of the inhabitants of Octavia sewing designs into the cloth, like decorative graffiti on a wall, and I will look more into this idea later.

Developing Octavia: People

A few quick ideas for what the people of Octavia might look like. They might not feature in my project, but it was something on my mind that I wanted to draw out quickly. I like the idea of access to materials for clothes being limited, so large amounts of one material is made or acquired through trade, and distributed to people to do with as they wish. As a result, many people end up wearing the same colours, just worn in different ways.

Life Drawing Edits

During last week's life drawing session, Vicky suggested we edit images of our work in photoshop. Here are a few quick edits I did.

Developing Octavia

 Thinking about larger buildings and structures that would exist in Octavia. Here are some rough designs for a palace, gardens, a temple and a school.
