Unit 2: Photoshop Idea's 1 and 2

These are just some quick idea's I have of my Scene's 1 and 2 idea's These may not be final but just idea's

Quick idea for my (Idea 1 Photoshop design based on beautiful beaches, tropical sea and golden beaches)
This idea was trying to show the representation of the wave crashing up against the rocks, thus then creating sparkles like small little rainbow that you sometimes see at the sea when waves crash against rocks.
and in the distance I've made the view look like it's going up to represent that the world goes upwards rather then it actually supposed to be going down.

My Idea for my Idea 2 Design. ( I've tried to keep this scene in the way of  keeping it slightly dull but there keeping the phrase there's light at the end of the tunnel. Meaning that the forest is the creepy forest all glum and dark but then the flower's growing from the tree's and the light shining through representing that there's still beauty amongst these creepy and dark tree's.

I'll have more idea's up soon especially for my Idea 3 design (to do with temple's in the distance.)

Also I still have thumbnails and other drawings to scan and upload. :)

Unit 2 Influence Map's

These Influence map's will be based on the 3 final design idea's for all 3 idea's.

This Influence map is to show that my book and my designs are all going to be based on the earth as if we lived on the inside of the earth. For the top image from Halo is supposed to be the world but in fact the opposite way round. So if this was to happen to us we would most likely see the sea above us millions of miles away, Australia or something like this. The beast picture is also based on this because in the film Thor there's one point where the people are running on the top part of the rock and the beast is actually chasing them from underneath the rock up-side down. I couldn't find the actual image but this was a rough idea of the best and to show that I've thought about that part of the film.

Idea 1: Influence map.

This influence map is based upon my final designs for my Idea 1 design. I want to try keep the idea one's designs to look as beautiful and pretty as possible to give it that realistic beautiful approach to the world and because of it not actually be the right way of earth making it feel much like a place that you could only imagine in your dreams. My idea of this is based around a island known as the Seychelles due to it's beautiful scenes, beaches, see through water and in fact describes perfectly my idea for Idea 1.

Idea 2: Influence map

The idea around my Idea 2 design was to go for the more creepy look effect of the woods. I'm looking forward to seeing how my Idea 2 design will turn out because I'm wanting to merge creepy, horror, scary scene but mix it with the odd one or two beautiful thing's, much like the representation of the girl in the red dress where everyone around her is black and white but yet she stands out like a rose in a patch of dead weeds for example. But at the same time I am thinking of whether to go for a creepy look but yet not so creepy meaning having beautiful features about it but yet somehow it still stands out to be slightly creepy. For example the of the two people standing in the woods (Twilight Film) the woods seem really green colourful and nice full of life, but yet in the background of the woods and certain parts of it, it feel damp, miserable and even has smoke to give it that more creepy effect about the scene. So this could also be a good idea for this Idea. I've included the giant Ent picture and the face made of tree's picture to represent that even if the woods was to look really creepy or even really beautiful if one of the tree's was to feel as if alive or watching you like a living being it would give you a slight chill about the atmosphere of where you was no matter how beautiful or scary the place may look.

Idea 3: Influence map

This idea was more based on the idea of temple's. So the idea I would like to go for or a way to approach this would be to base my temple on a temple that's maybe been hidden for years or centuries and has been overgrown with tree's, bushes, life and anything that could possible grow. The biggest top left image and top right image is a perfect example of how I would like to approach this design idea by having the temple been overgrown with maybe a tree running down or growing from within out spreading to the outside of the temple and then using the top right image as like an example of it still being able to be seen amongst the tree's. Meaning if the tree's were to grow to a certain level, then the tree's or one big great tree growing from the temple would then stand out more then other's much like a great tree of power, like the lord of tree's that watches over the other's. If this make's sense.

This is an example of what I mean, but imagine the temple living within or underneath the tree.

Thank's for having the time to look into these Influence maps and any feedback would be nice if you think these go well, with the idea's I have my my design's

Few thumbnails will be uploaded soon.

Unit 2: Folder 12

So.. Adventure in a Stone Age Land Underground - Edgar Rice Burroughs - At The Earth's Core. This is the book I have been given, and to be honest I'm actually really looking forward to try this one out, When I first chose Folder 12 I was instantly thinking please be a good one and something I would be really interested in doing and looking forward to seeing an amazing piece of final designs at the end. To be honest I think I may have got it :D My first impression was wow! Jurassic park! but as reading the book it doesn't seem as much Jurassic park as I thought but it's al-right because I've read into some pretty interesting parts of the book that express some good idea's I could use. It doe's mention a few times about dinosaur type creature's but within the book they don't sound like dinosaur's they seem much more then that. But this book should be a good one and looking forward to see what I'm able to come up with.

These are just 3 Idea's I taken from the book. I did come up with about 6 or 7 but these 3 were the one's that stood out for me the most and seemed most appealing to me.

Idea 1:
This description instantly reminded me of an actual island I've actually experienced and seen with my own eyes and my god! it's beautiful. Really nice well textured rocks, beautiful palm tree's, gold sand and most of all the see through tropical water. This for me has to be one of the strongest Idea's that I will most likely definitely be using.
Here is an example of the Idea 1, what represent's this highlighted idea and where I've been. This will also be a part of my Influence map.

Idea 2:
This description also instantly stood out for me as it reminds me of the Lord of the Rings: Two Towers scene where all the tree's come out of the woods and see all the other tree's burnt down and all gloomy and dark, it also represent's and show's that the woods is quite creepy also. Which also is shown in the Harry potter film showing magnificent detail of what my gloomy dark woods idea could be based on.
This gave me a great idea though to do the woods in a dark, dingy and creepy was but yet keeping small thing's in bright colour and a great example for me that showed this was from the film: Schindler's list I'm sure it's called.
This Image of the girl I'm sure has been Photoshop to show her red dressing standing out more. Which is perfect because it's kind of what feel I would like to try out with my Idea 2 Photoshop work keeping the gloomy, dark, scary woods but with the odd few flowers and stuff standing out of the picture.

Idea 3:
I thought this would give me a pretty good idea of what I could do because as soon as I read it, it instantly  reminded me of the first Alien vs Predator film where they fall down the large whole and come across the pyramid temple and it's all being dark and gloomy around the temple but the temple itself quite lit up.
For this rather then the beautiful beach scene, and the dark, gloomy shady scene, I could keep this seen more lit up but having the woods more in-depth much like the jungle look or even the front cover of the book having it pretty much like this the way it's lit up and actually maybe having a dinosaur of some sort walking away from the temple to give the scene a more realistic feel to it. The Alien vs Predator scene I was referring to is this:

Really looking forward to seeing what I'm able to produce from these Photoshop idea's and the final designs.

Influence Maps up soon!
