CGMA Environment Design 1 with James Paick – weeks 6 & 7

Week’s six and seven of the Environment Design 1 course focused on refining a one design each from week 5′s thumbnails. The use of photographs, to help not only texture the image, but also as a way of creating new shapes and designs was explored.

The top image is Week 7′s effort. I felt I owed the course a real solid effort, since last Week 6′s image (bottom) coincided with my trip back to Australia from the UK and I wasn’t able to give it the attention it deserved. I went with a more fantasy style image, with a castle stretching out to the sea being marched on by an army. I took the thumbnail and pretty much painted it again from scratch, making use of the painting on top of photos idea.

The bottom image is Week 6′s effort. This was probably the most successful of the thumbnails from Week 5, and certainly the most intriguing point of view. I used photos in this one to enrich the mechanics of the water mills design. This image was going in the right direction, but I was unable to give it the attention it needed to really make it look finished. Perhaps I will return to it and finish it off in the coming days.
