Final Titus Groan Concepts

Okay....so I've finally reached the stage of completion, and to be honest I'm glad to see the back of it.....it just really seemed to drag out towards the end....so I can't wait to get my hands on some new material.., although it was a good learning curve, and i mean that in the best way possible it really was a good insight to using a graphics tablet for the first time, and i feel I've taken as much as I can from this particular unit, and although in the critque, I suffered a little grilling, with some of my images (to the point where my shortest piece was the most effective) I believe this was due to my inexperience with the medium, as well as lack of internet, explaining why my blog is lacking towards the end....

Though it knocked me back a bit again...... I got to push forward and take it in my stride.....

Anyway, here's the Final Images...

Hall Of Bright Carvings....













Room Of Roots...

I can see how some of my images do appear to be quite flat, and convey a sense of 'Illustration', it just found it hard to break away from those sketches, especially with the transition into photoshop, but as time went on, I feel I began to progress my work, taking more confidence, as well as expressive use of tones....

  1. Hi everyone – hope you’re relaxing after your five weeks and crit…

    In preparation for your next unit, I thought it might be useful to introduce you all to a couple of third year students, whose projects are very environment-based (in different ways and with different emphases) and who are in the later stages of their respective projects; I’d like you to follow their progress – so introduce yourselves and don’t be shy!

  2. Also – take a look at the following project blog – a collaboration between 2 third years, Pol Winandy and Jon Stewart; they’re creating an action-packed animated short; their attention to detail is formidable and they’re also working through all the inevitable tensions/complications that come with group working. It’s been a long, intense experience for them both, and, with five weeks to go, they’re moving into an even more pressurised phase. The environment stage is in the offing – so follow their progress and get a real insight into the minutiae of CG and story-telling; meet the future!
