Homework by DanielAraya Homework by DanielAraya
So like I mentioned before, I've been taking James Paick's Environment Design for Entertainment 1 class. It's been going pretty well and I've definitely been learning a lot and practicing things I would definitely not have practiced otherwise. I thought I'd go ahead post up my first two homework assignments for you guys to see.

It's been a struggle doing these outside of my normal job, but it's been tremendously worth it. The first two weeks have pretty much been focusing exclusively on composition, value distribution, and lighting. I think I spectacularly failed in some of these areas and I think I succeeded in others. I notice that I'm falling into comfort zones in terms of how I organize my values, but for now I'm going to try to just internalize the lessons and deal with repeating myself after I'm more comfortable with the material.

There's a little bit more on my blog and I'll probably be updating the rest of my homework assignments on there if any of you guys are interested: [link]

I think everybody's digesting different aspects at different rates. There's some things I'm still really struggling to get working right- it makes sense in theory, and I understand it, it's just not showing through...hopefully now this week it'll all click into place.

Oh man I am so happy to hear your taking his class! It's so incredibly awesome!

But these paintings are really kickass! I love how you established such a nice sense of space and really made good use of the mid ground elements. Your other thumbs on your blog are really rocking, I can't wait to see what you do as you progress through the class ♥
