For these images I really wanted to relate them to a film or book. To create and image from the piece as if i was imagining it myself, from my own perspective. I wanted to create a scene not from the movie or book, but one created from my own imagination. Here are the films and books I looked at.
First I thought straight away of the scenes from the film I am legend. How it would have been impossible to create a set for that vast space and look realistic as the new York city. So I began to think about matte painting a scene from the film. It seemed perfect, a derelict city with only solitary person and dog. Would create a nice piece. But in the film there isn’t much time between the death of the human race and the film, so not many of the buildings would have been broken, so I may have to improvise. The scene I would have to create out of my own imagination and to find the right picture to manipulate.
Bicentennial Man was a film where robots had developed so much that they have become human. This seemed perfect from my research and looking at Michael Oswald’s work. To create my own android human would be a challenge as i would want to replicate Michael’s class and perfection.
Fight club only popped into my head as I was scrolling through stock images. I saw a picture of an underground car park and remembered the film. A scenario came to me and I knew then that I had to create an image for this film. It would be a challenge to create the mood and bring the elements together. I would have to use digital painting, much in the same way that Michael Oswald would have done.
