Watercolor Stillife

I'm taking a watercolor class this semester and while it's tons of fun- it's incredibly challenging and I find myself being incredibly cautious when it comes to the marks I make.... And then getting fed up and going crazy at the end!

The semester is finally over, and all the house party's are (mostly) over!!! 
This summer is off to a fantastic start!
Real paintings to come in the future, so hold on.

Fifth Element Layout/Lighting

I've decided to take this composition forward from last weel! Because this is an environment piece, I decided to move the worker farther back in space to make him smaller and thereby take up less screen real-estate. The elements were positioned on the page corresponding to "The golden Spiral". I think it's working out rather well! I quickly blocked things out in Maya and did some simple lighting! Although color isn't due this week, I subtlety toyed with the idea of having a complimentary windmill color scheme. (Cooler background, warmer orangey mid, and a cool foreground) my next step is to start adding local color, and texture to the piece. This next part is going to take some time!

The Fifth Element Research

We're starting a project based on creating a new environment that fits into The Fifth Element. Before deciding what exactly I want to do, I needed to do some research on the movie and figure out how things are designed! The art direction for this movie is pretty unique, and although most of the designs seem pretty hokey, they have a charm to them!
