Major project week review 2/3/12

Hey again yes it’s been two weeks since I posted up my university development work

I planed to do it every week that did not happen as you can see.

In my defence the workload was much more high than it is now. Originally I set the task of producing a certain number of illustrations 20-30 describing visually the diverse life and motion of this Cool world/ Todd schorr inspired universe. I then realized that without any story or theme to go with the art could end up being just pretty eye candy. Which suits part of my goals for this project but their needs to be a running theme or concept to go with this body of work.
So this week I have looked in to cutting down my illustration size to 7 and looked at concepts to do with this number (Examples 7 deadly sins, 7 days of the week and the poem Mondays Child) this is to make things easy for this stage of the project it may change later on.

The concept I have chosen to develop that shows a lot of creative promise is Shakespeare’s famous theory on the seven ages of man from the play “As You like it”.

I plan to illustrate each age in a separate illustration. But not making it generic or too obvious but complimenting the text describing each stage.

Infancy: In this stage he is a baby

Childhood: It is in this stage that he begins to go to school. He is reluctant to leave the protected environment of his home as he is still not confident enough to exercise his own discretion.

 The lover: In this stage he is always remorseful due to some reason or other, especially the loss of love. He tries to express feelings through song or some other cultural activity.

I would like to get some feed back from other students to see if my tonal roughs work for the titles they are illustrating.

I am continuing this routine for the other ages over this weekend.

Until next post LATERS
