I haven’t continued working on my project much since last Friday (last blog). I spent my weekend with other stuff. If you notice, I’ve changed the appearance of this website to the bright tone finally! I should have done this several months ago. Yeah, procrastination is unpleasant. Now, my homepage looks like this:
You might notice that there are fewer works than before on my homepage. I have removed some works because I want to focus on only design and illustration. No more for programming. It’s good to know many stuff but sometimes, it needs focusing. Moreover, I plan to change the template of this website because this one doesn’t support video clip. A big change is coming soon!
For my project, after I got feedback and input from my mentor last Friday. It was so constructive. There were many things that I didn’t think about and forgot. I forgot the concept, setting, medium, presentation, etc. I was so careless. Now, I add too much information in my characters and the concept is so weak. I haven’t thought of the next step when I have to make an infographic. It will be a big problem…
So, after getting feedback, I did some more research, found more inspiration and planned for the next step. I think I’ll deconstruct and simplify my characters, and fix some characters that have a problem. I’m gonna use Final Fantasy logos as inspiration.
I got some thoughts from my mentor. Religion and Bible might be interesting for the infographic.
“Hieronymus Bosch’s The Seven Deadly Sins and the Four Last Things”
So, now I think I have mood & tone for my project already. Next week will be tough and hard I guess. I’m gonna have intense workshop for 3 full days starting from tomorrow, and will finish this toolbox-the illustration within next weekend. Tough and rough way to go.
