completed house background

This is the background for the middle section of the film, everything is on separate layers, and the door is movable, with a hall way behind it.

Backgrounds... from the beginning..

So after our chat with Georg the other day I realised that I was probably going to have to re draw all of our background, as they were too small and the quality when zoomed in was very poor. Also I needed to cut out each of the Elements in the shot, so that they could be on different layers. This is my first one, though it is yet to be even coloured. I am a little worried that this will set us back a little from out schedule.

Life Drawing

So Charlotte and I finally went to a life drawing session at woodlane, yesterday evening, with some fairly poor result on my part. I wasn't very happy with the work that I produced, but I am going to put up this one piece, not very happy with the final outcome, but really liked the technique that I used, Charcoal and Chalk on brown paper, using a rubber to clean up the edges.

But I do plan to continue to go from now on, practice makes perfect and all that. :)

getting a bit of perspective...

This is the City backdrop, altered using the perspective tool in photoshop to see how the taxi sits in the shot.

this is the taxi prop for the shots in the city. I have been working on it in photoshop, and the bottom picture was used to check that the prop would fit in well with the backgrounds.
