post crit redesign

During Fridays crit I got a lot of good feed back from the lecturers and wanted to post some of the improvements this had made on my design, particularly my interior design. Spoiler alert its not just a wall anymore:  because this is a sketch you might not be able to tell but this is meant to be the office of the governing body of Argia and the middle rock formation would be a stair case leading up to his/her seat  beside their elevated seat would be the bench for their advisor/assist don't know which). in the foreground would be a large stature carved out of one of the rock formations growing from the bottom and slightly behind the "mayor's" seat would be a second rock stature designed the same way... I might colour it in time as a personal piece.

Crit day done :)

So today was crit day... think it went well for our first crit then I stumbled upon these videos in my YouTube feed and thought I'd share. Nice to see the behind the scenes of the pro's and how crits affect their work

Who's Who?

Alien Review

Fig 1. Directed by: Ridley Scott Starring: Tom Skerritt, Sigourney Weaver, Veronica Cartwright, Harry Dean Stanton, John Hurt, Ian Holm and Yaphet Kotto Year of release: 1979
"HR Giger, whose "biomechanical" artwork lent Ridley Scott's film Alienmuch of its terror,-"  The Guardian 2014 The art within Alien done by the late HR Giger was astonishingly beautiful and has managed to stand the test of film time. Unlike most science fiction movies of the time Scott enlisted the aid of a surrealist painter to create the world for his alien and this became a breath taking success. unlike most concept artists of the time who seemed to have been inspired heavily by futurist art Gige decided to create a world more industrial.

This design choice made the world more believable as the member of the crew were not living in a super polished version of the modern world but were instead hired in a world that was seemingly more ruthless and militaristic than ever be…

2001: Review

Fig 1. 2001: A Space Odyssey
Directed by: Stanley Kubrick
Starring: Garry Lockwood, Keir Dullea
Year of Release: April 2 1968

One of the most influential science fiction movie of the last century, 2001: A Space Odyssey is a technological masterpiece.
"No little part of his effect comes from the music." - Roger Ebert, 1997 This film has very little dialogue, but in the place of this missing element of the film Stanley Kubrick had commissioned the musical talents of Alex North. Many of the classical pieces composed by him help give the film a very calming feeling while the visuals directed by Kubrick would give the audience a feeling of unease. This effect gave the viewer a very weird and eerie feeling as if to remind us not to get too comfortable.

Fig 2. "The film, in fact, might be best described as a factual philosophical speculation-" - The Gaurdian 2010  The film itself does seem to make a running commentary on the actions of humans starting all the way back in…

Faces of Argia

While I was running dry on imagination I decided to to do a few quick concepts of that the inhabitants of Argia would look like... I spent no more that 5 min on each and wanted to keep them all fairly human looking.
