First week of our second semester was Design 2 with Lawrence Marvit. A welcome but tough start. We went over value, construction, rendering and texture during this week. The assignments we were given were all to be digitally rendered in Photoshop. Since I've never really rendered a fully finished piece, I found it hard but rewarding.
Weapon from Atlantis
Steampunk mixed with Film Noir - A chase scene
Fairy Flower City
I still have a lot to learn about rendering and using values correctly, but at least I feel like I'm on the right track. A note for myself would be focusing on producing a clear and usable thumbnail before starting a piece.
