So this will be the first of hopefully many posts of me evaluating/ reflecting on each individual piece of work I have created for this project whilst highlighting my intentions and whether of not I felt like they succeeded at that.
This first post will be on my concept piece called “Floating Castle”.
My incredibly inventive name aside the piece was supposed to showcase a mix of futuristic and medieval as the piece was supposed to represent the clash of different eras. This, unfortunately, has clearly failed as it merely looks like a ruined castle in anti-gravity not that there is anything wrong in fact I like this piece! it just doesn’t accomplish what it was meant to (in terms of setting).
In terms of how the viewer’s eye would travel, I wanted the viewer’s eyes to travel in a spiral starting from the piece on the left and then spiralling towards the centre.
Unfortunately, this didn’t work out as I left a gap in the middle to right meaning that the spiral is incomplete so the viewer’s eye doesn’t travel as well as it should do.
I also feel like the piece of architecture in the centre looks to blended compared to the rest creating a disjointed feel to the middle of the image. Overall I’m happy with this piece as it marks the first step into dry brush.
