This image is my logo they way I am showing it now is in stencil form. This logo is used for my company "Technic Design". The focus and nature of my company is rough, dark and more obscure or alien like special effects. The company itself focuses on Props, Costumes and Make-up. Technic Design is prominently higher-ed for Sci-fi and creature included movies and T.V shows. I love to create lifelike and realistic creatures from out of this world. Which is why I chose such a strange creature for my logo.

The logo reflects my company because of its wild and obscure qualities that I try so hard to show in the my work. The creature has to large eyes in the center with a third above it to represent imaginative ideas that wouldn't come from this world. It has to large jaws on the sides of its face with three teeth each it also has three fin like appendages on the back of his head. After creating this stencil I had added three teeth in between the eyes to add a little more texture. Over the eye are supposed to only be three eye brows which would complete the three of everything which I only noticed a few weeks after creating it. The use of bold lines and obvious/ simple symbols allow the viewer to really see and understand the idea after a few seconds of looking at it. I like how this image can be placed in any setting and really look good on anything it isn't only typographic which i think really helps allow more freedom.

My logo had started from a character that I often draw in my sketch book so i had already perfected the look and feel of this character which made it very easy to transport into my logo. I didn't really have any problems because I already had designed it before this assignment but i did go through other ideas. Unfortunately the other ideas weren't very strong as logos so I decided to go with this. I think that the end result for this logo is just how I pictured and really feel that is strong, distinctive and really represents my style.

"The Time CUBE"

This piece was made for one of my year 4 sketchbook assignments. The topic i choose was "Do something with no apparent end or purpose." The image is of a character that has no end because he can travel to any fragment of time but he has no purpose he helps no one and does not use the information he gains for anything he just simply observes what happens through time. The large box on the ground allows him to travel through time, the large vest on his back is synced to the box which insures his entire body travels at once. The vest also stops him from ageing.

Process work for the week 2 sketchbook assignment

These three sketches are what i used for my sketchbook assignment. I scanned them individually and added colour, changed the levels and I also changed the position of the character for the first image.

Sketchbook assignment for week 2 of year 4

These images are for my sketch book assignment for Tuesday September 24 ,2014. I had scanned in a few drawing and added colour and an outline in Photoshop. The Sketch book topic i chose was "In a series of pictures or three dimensional works, show subject undergoing a change over a period of time".
The story is of a character that finds some kind of strange helmet. The character puts the helmet on and becomes a wicked beast.

Inkblot Tests

These photos are of the inkblots that my group created we made these and were actually quite surprised to see that they all had very similar shapes. Example they all have these two circular shapes moving through them. They also look like they have wings of some kind. These images are in order from smallest to largest they we are going to create a larger amount of these and the difference in size will be allot smaller from one picture to the next. 

These photos were edited by Alfonso and my self we changed the brown colour that they had to a nice black that looks more like ink the also had wrinkles and shadows which we also removed. These are perfect examples of the images we are going for.   

Down By Law


        In our latest assignment we were told to change the mood of a movie trailer ex: Barbie the movie becomes a zombie movie. I choose Down by Law because the mood is pretty dark but yet it still has some comedic moments. The director of this movie is Jim Jarmusch, He is a fantastic director.

       When changing this movie trailer i wanted to eliminate the comedic part of the movie and make it more of a dark movie. I choose to use the parts of the movie that are darker such as the fight scene and the escape scene.

       When choosing the music i chose a Tom Waits song called "Hell Broke Luce" because it is pretty descriptive of the trailer. It is pretty dark but it is very load and powerful which is what i am going for in the trailer.

        In the future i would like to change the song to something more dark and less of the same vibe from the original trailer. Also i would like to change the ending cause i feel that i have given to much of the story away. I think i could shorten some of the scenes because i feel that people can make the connection from one scene to the next without showing the whole scene.

        In conclusion I think that the trailer can be fixed and could be much better and will be resubmitted. I still like the mood was slightly changed but can be more obvious when i re do it.
