Back when Google started buying up the internet, it all got a bit confusing and I ended up with multiple accounts, I will be deleting this blog in a few days as I have been posting on a new blog here
and cant seem to work out how to merge them.

Ahh its been a while, have been studying a fair bit lately, trying to get more of a handle on color, particularly temperature, and the structure of chroma+hue as it relates to a palette, interesting stuff. Check out handprint.com guy is a genius when it comes to theorizing color, be warned its incredibly in-depth, but the truths you learn from it are incredibly elegant and useful
Have also done a a fair bit of sargent study, a touch of philosophy and the nature of aesthetics. I found wrestling with philosophy incredibly usefull, it will surely torment but crucially it builds intellect.
Attempting to understand the nature of semantics, interesting things.
And some of my dwarwerings of course :)

Soviet-style industrialisation on a vast scale as viewed from floor to ceiling windows in an executive lounge. A fair amount of research and design went it to this work, right down to the carpets and floor materials. As such i had a clear image in mind of the final painting before starting out. Really i should have used a block model for the smokestack, especially considering it was all planned out in an orthographic design drawing prior and not to mention being a real nightmare to plot out in 3/4 view :) Still it works well for a colour sketch at this point.

The renowned Pixar Colour script has always fascinated me, one small yet highly significant part of the Pixar story telling process. One can only imagine how seriously they took these in a film like Wall-e with such a little amount of dialogue. I'm planning on developing one as a side project to ramp up my colour theory knowledge. I'm curious as to how widespread they are in game development, we are all aware of the ice zone, fire zone, sky zone and such areas of video games. But how does that tie into the players emotional journey and experience? Could be a nice portfolio piece.

A quick splash of colour on the previous value study, i wanted the image to have a gritty, slightly desaturated colour palette. I will likely take this one to finish and work on the intensity of the half tones and reveal the foreground structure designs further.
