Transcript: Sketchbook Favorite Damien Hirst is probably one of my favorite artists we covered. I really enjoyed the simplicity of his spot paintings and the controlled chaos of his spin paintings. I really enjoy the pop of his color choices. The Physical Impossibility of Death in the Mind of Someone Living is probably my favorite, however, because of the simplicity of it. It looks very neat for it just being a tiger shark in a container. Least Favorite Frieda Kahlo is probably my least favorite artist we covered. Her artwork is really cool, I just don’t think its really for me. I like the messages she puts into her work, like in “The Wounded Dear”, she expressed her pain that she was feeling because of the surgeries in her work. I love messages in artwork, but I just don’t think that her style is fit for me. Birth Damien Hirst was born on June 7, 1965 in Bristol, England Childhood He was a very troubled child that got caught shoplifting twice His parents divorced and he lived with his mother Artwork The Physical Impossibility of Death in the Mind of Someone Living Flumequine Mickey Work His work is very controversial He includes dead animals into his artwork One main reason he likes including dead animals into his artwork is that he sees the beauty in science and enjoys stuff that is interesting and yet repulsive Important Dates In 1991 he had his first solo exhibit In 1994 he started his spot paintings In the 1980s-1990s he was a leading figure in the Young British Artists movement In 1988 he had his "Freeze" exhibit Quotes “Art’s about life, and it can’t really be anything else.” "In an artwork you're always looking for artistic decisions, so an ashtray is perfect. An ashtray has got life and death." "But the answer to how to live is to stop thinking about it. And just to live. But you're doing that anyway. However you intellectualise it, you still just live." "I always feel like the art's there and I just see it, so it's not really a lot of work." Other Facts He is one of the wealthiest artists alive today Blue Peter presenter John Noakes inspired him to try spin paintings Damien Hirst Video https://www.biography.com/artist/damien-hirst https://www.google.com/imgres?imgurl=https%3A%2F%2Fcdn.britannica.com%2F58%2F181658-050-5F2E6ACF%2FI-Am-Become-Death-Damien-Hirst-front-2012.jpg&imgrefurl=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.britannica.com%2Fbiography%2FDamien-Hirst&docid=9-g7Q7iMe-kOzM&tbnid=GPZpXML5-O9KvM%3A&vet=10ahUKEwjXjO_Lgb_lAhVLcq0KHQTYDX8QMwhdKAEwAQ..i&w=1600&h=1067&safe=active&bih=609&biw=1366&q=damien%20hirst%20facts&ved=0ahUKEwjXjO_Lgb_lAhVLcq0KHQTYDX8QMwhdKAEwAQ&iact=mrc&uact=8 https://www.tate.org.uk/kids/explore/who-is/who-damien-hirst https://www.google.com/imgres?imgurl=https%3A%2F%2Fupload.wikimedia.org%2Fwikipedia%2Fen%2F3%2F38%2FHirst-Shark.jpg&imgrefurl=https%3A%2F%2Fen.wikipedia.org%2Fwiki%2FThe_Physical_Impossibility_of_Death_in_the_Mind_of_Someone_Living&docid=0xjWOykRX21yXM&tbnid=jfneDqXQOU7OaM%3A&vet=10ahUKEwjXjO_Lgb_lAhVLcq0KHQTYDX8QMwiYASgvMC8..i&w=389&h=255&safe=active&bih=609&biw=1366&q=damien%20hirst%20facts&ved=0ahUKEwjXjO_Lgb_lAhVLcq0KHQTYDX8QMwiYASgvMC8&iact=mrc&uact=8 https://www.google.com/imgres?imgurl=https%3A%2F%2Fgagosian.com%2Fmedia%2Fimages%2Fartists%2Fdamien-hirst%2FgqP3vKls8VVP_585x329.jpg&imgrefurl=https%3A%2F%2Fgagosian.com%2Fartists%2Fdamien-hirst%2F&docid=b8Ik0KAWrFFGVM&tbnid=M7PY-Mo7expbaM%3A&vet=10ahUKEwjXjO_Lgb_lAhVLcq0KHQTYDX8QMwijASg6MDo..i&w=484&h=329&safe=active&bih=609&biw=1366&q=damien%20hirst%20facts&ved=0ahUKEwjXjO_Lgb_lAhVLcq0KHQTYDX8QMwijASg6MDo&iact=mrc&uact=8 https://www.theartstory.org/artist/hirst-damien/ https://www.google.com/imgres?imgurl=http%3A%2F%2Ff812741d99cee8866769-1eff6c2e5bc1acb4200996e1b293188f.r83.cf3.rackcdn.com%2F_2500xAUTO_crop_center-center_75%2FHirstD-Flumequine.jpg&imgrefurl=http%3A%2F%2Fparagonpress.co.uk%2Fworks%2Fflumequine&docid=3FIWbYCzhfPOfM&tbnid=eKzm11wlI1bgCM%3A&vet=10ahUKEwjty-en3b_lAhVCop4KHfcjCfIQMwhDKAEwAQ..i&w=2500&h=3228&safe=active&bih=609&biw=1366&q=Flumequine&ved=0ahUKEwjty-en3b_lAhVCop4KHfcjCfIQMwhDKAEwAQ&iact=mrc&uact=8 https://www.google.com/url?sa=i&source=images&cd=&ved=2ahUKEwjZk53V3b_lAhVERa0KHV8fBEwQjRx6BAgBEAQ&url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.bluehorizonprints.com.au%2F%3Fattachment_id%3D201441&psig=AOvVaw1FjpPplSmWDAi9ttgegAVa&ust=1572378803973033 https://www.google.com/imgres?imgurl=https%3A%2F%2Fcdn.britannica.com%2F58%2F181658-050-5F2E6ACF%2FI-Am-Become-Death-Damien-Hirst-front-2012.jpg&imgrefurl=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.britannica.com%2Fbiography%2FDamien-Hirst&docid=9-g7Q7iMe-kOzM&tbnid=GPZpXML5-O9KvM%3A&vet=10ahUKEwiaqpHQ3sHlAhVxpVkKHT7RAeUQMwiGASgMMAw..i&w=1600&h=1067&safe=active&bih=609&biw=1366&q=damien%20hirst&ved=0ahUKEwiaqpHQ3sHlAhVxpVkKHT7RAeUQMwiGASgMMAw&iact=mrc&uact=8

Transcript: All of the shots that were used in the composition were all taken on the same day, that way lighting conditions could be as consistent as possible. Any shots that may be in different lighting simply due to the situation they were shot in, can be fixed with colour correction thanks to Magic Lantern, but an attempt was made to make sure the lighting was as similar as possible, to make everything look as consistent as possible. The shots were taken on a clear day, so an ISO of 100 was used for all of them. This helps to reduce any grain in the shots. This matte painting shows a great contrast of light and dark. Outside the city walls in the foreground the landscape looks gloomy, but inside it looks bright and friendly. Influence: Romanticism This image was taken with the exact same settings as the last one, showing a clear advantage of shooting everything on the one day. Process Process Calum Fisher 40087941 Photographs In contrast, this picture shows off the slums of a Victorian city. Notice the cramped area and very cheap looking buildings. The creator of the picture made the sky dark, which helps to emphasize that this is not a good place. The tower and rocks were taken from their source by using the Magic Wand Tool. They were then put in place by overlapping the rock over the Tower This shots includes two chimneys to be used in the composition. Due to the distance, this was shot with a 20mm Wide Angle lens and a shutter speed of 1/30 was used. It is important to organise and name your layers. At the start of the project I basically just made a layer and then ignored it, but it became a nuisance to manage properly so I took the time to organise everything and it made everything much better to work with. Planning is key, if you jump straight into something just thought up, then you may end up missing some important features. For example, the idea of the temple was thought up during the planning stage, if I didn't go through that process, there would be no temple. I also learned some helpful Photoshop techniques such as the helpfulness of masking. Calton Hill Monument What was learned 8 Pictures of the city were taken from Calton Hill, by swiveling the tripod slightly, every time a picture was taken. A shutter speed of 1/60 was used to make sure less light in. Process This perspective picture shows the sketch in more detail. The rule of thirds is used with the tower, to help draw attention to it more. A temple has also been added in the background, to give more of an allure to the composition Process This matte painting utilities the Rule of thirds, where and important element of the piece matches the intersecting point of the equally space guidelines. This gives the piece more depth than a bland matte painting where the important element is in the center of the screen. The bridge was then added by masking it with the rock o the right, to help it fit in more. The brightness and the levels were then adjusted to make the bridge match the lighting conditions of the surrounding objects. The bridge and the tower look very grand to help emphasize that this is the rich area. Information Gathering and Preproduction The end goal of this module is to create a lifelike looking composition, which follows a particular style Sketchbook Process Another location was the streets surrounding Napier Universities Merchinston campus. Like Calton hill, it also had interesting looking monuments, as well as some nice older looking buildings. Colour sorted folders were used to make everything look much more organized, as well as being easier to work with. Test Shots What would be done different next time Introduction Inspiration This shot was used to find a good substitute for a texture, to blend with some parts of the city, so the shadows were not a problem here. These were taken with the same settings as the previous shot, except for a slightly lower shutter speed of 1/20. City Process The Sketch using the vanishing point with a view of the ocean in the background A Canon EOS 7D DSLR camera was used to take the photographs. Magic Lantern was used to take the photographs in a RAW format, which has great quality and allows for detailed colour correction. The rock in front was added and then a texture of another rock was blended using hard light, so that the rock kept the same shape but had a more rough texture Idea The Romantic era was very popular during the Victorian era, so it is very fitting to use some aspects of it in this piece. The style is designed to produce high emotion from the viewer, such as awe. Therefore it includes lots of exaggerations, which have been designed to be incorporated into this piece. This old photograph shows a rich part of Victorian London, showing off the complex Designs Some more additions to the rich area could maybe be added, such as a horse and carriage, to continue to emphasize that it is the rich and grand part of the matte painting. More objects could have been used to simply make the world

Transcript: The Great Divide The Dead vs. The living This image symbolizes the division between the life and death. Skeletons could be placed within the cemetary area, fighting against the living on the other side. This image was selected because I liked the wall (Great DOF) between the water and land functioning as a division. I believed this is a good subject to create dystopic painting symbolizing a constant battle between the land and the sea. The finished animation was then published as Quicktime movie, encoded with H264, 24fps. The image was then saved as .jpg. The original .psd file is available unflattened. 1. This is the final image of my composition. It portrays dystopia showing the never-ending battle between the land and the sea. I named it 'The Great Divide', because the sea wall built symbolizes the division line as a defense of dry land and its life from the constant merciless tides of the ocean. The painting displays the constant battle of the sea with the land. The sea monsters symbolize the ocean and the rocky monsters are the representations for the land defense. This allowed me to bring to life the vision I had when I saw the sea wall while I was scouting for a suitable location. The series of photos were taken in sunset. Several exposures were tested with adjusting the shutter speed (60+), apperture (8-11) and the ISO (100,200, and 400) because in lower settings the image appeared too dark. I captured several sets of images but this batch seemed the best considering the lighting conditions were resulting in darker images. Once the 15 images were merged, using the photomerge feature in Adobe Bridge and Photoshop, the merged image was then corrected using the blending modes and image adjustments such as contrast, curves, hue and saturation, levels. Initially, I attempted doing HDR by creating additional images with various exposures -2,0,+2 in Camera Raw but it meant I had to save the image as .tiff to retain the highest quality and it resulted in image that was rather overexposed. This is why I opted for improving the image using above mentioned blending modes and image adjustments. The result was very good as the dark areas gained more contrast while before the image colouring was rather bland. Then I proceeded with cutting the characters out of their backgrounds and positioning them within the composition. These were also corrected using the hue and saturation, curves, and other adjustments. Once the image was complete, the animation of a mist was generated. After drawing the mist using paintbrush tool 4 different pictures had to be warped to achieve smooth subtle transition. These were then animated by creating the motion tween and adding 10 frames to each tween pairing. Finally, I duplicated the image and merged the layers to create colour match from alternative matte painting. Overall I am happy with the result, there's still room for improvement. I would like to add more characters going all along the coast, which would perhaps make more sense. However, the wall is not that long and I wanted to keep the battle in the foreground for this reason. I have throuroughly enjoyed working on this project and enjoyed this unit as I have learned a lot. I will continue to further my skills in photography and photo manipulation as there is always something new to learn. sunset capture images in .crw import images into photoshop and create panorama use masks and adjustment layers to develop a film still matte painting create subtle animation within the painting publish as .pds unflattened, mp4, and .jpg East Wemys Cemetary East Wemys Coastline Macduff Castle The End develop a matte painting, film still improve DSLR camera skills improve photo editing skills using Photoshop Dystopia (cc) photo by Metro Centric on Flickr Scout for Location Brainstorm Which One? http://chicpixels.tumblr.com/ Finally the image was colour matched to a matte painting but the original colours appear to be more colourful with more contrast. seawall 3/ The sky was selected and darkened using the curves.

Transcript: Ideas and Inspirations Locations and Test Shots Production Background Midground The Bin The Chair The Telephone Box The Cash Machine/Telephone Foreground The Fog Final Curves Evaluation Locations and Test Shots Structures I decided to choose a dystopian feel for my final idea: Landscape - Heriot-Watt Tree Trail Structures - Telephone Box -Cash machine/telephone -Chair -Bin Lighting - Dark with bright sky Fog Evaluation Ideas and Inspiration Production Drawing Dystopian/ Post Apocalyptic Isolated area Floating castle Burning Cars Dark lighting Lack of light source Main Idea Woodland City Suburban Urban Mountains Riverside Seaside Final Idea Mind Map of Ideas Edinburgh Castles Heriot-Watt Tree Trails Telephone Box Cash Machine Car Tunnel Bridge Landscapes Stage One: Introduction The aim of this coursework is to create a virtual environment in Photoshop using a 4k template, taking inspiration from a genre of our own choice. We are to use real images that we have taken ourselves or drawings that we have created. This sketchbook is here to provide a guide to my final composition, showing the journey from the original ideas and inspiration, to the test shots and drawings and then finally to the final composition. I love how this matte painting feels spacious but at the same time has a small feeeling about it. The lighting adds to this feel as there is the contrast between the light coming in through the broken ceiling, making it feel big, and then the darkness that surrounds the rest of the picture making it seem smaller, but also adding an spooky feel to the painting. Matte Painting by Bastian Grivet This matte painting features the castle at night, but the original picture was actually taken during the day. I like the idea of having the image set at night and the way the moon and the single lit up window on the castle act as the only sources of light, making for an eerie feel to the image. Matte Painting by Niall Cochrane Avatar Rocks This picture is off a floating rock formation from the film Avatar. The idea of floating rocks or even just have a tower of rocks to hold up the castle is something that I want incorporate into my own matte painting. Matte Painting by Steve Burg I liked this image for the fact that it uses fog to create a mystery feel to the image, but to also add to the overall effect of the weather on the image. I hope to add fog to my final composition as a way of creating a more eerie feel. Matte Painting by Marianne Drahonnet The idea of having woodland feature in my image is an idea that I liked as it represents the disuse and isolation that I hope to convey in my final image as well as the hope of new life. I took inspiration from this image as it clearly conveys these themes. Seeing as Edinburgh Castle is one of the main aspects of Edinburgh, I wanted to add it in to my matte painting, either as part of the background or as part of the main idea. I took this picture from the west end of Princes Street, looking up at the castle. I chose to use an f value of 6.3 so that i could gain a wide depth of field over the whole image. The iso was set to 400 and the shutter speed to 1/320s as the day was quite bright and I didnt want the picture to be over exposed. I took this picture in my living room, off one of my kitchen chairs. The f value was set to 5.6 which allowed for an accurate exposure off the chair as well as the chair being the main focus. The ISO was set to 800 and the shutter speed to 1/25s to again allow for accurate exposure. This picture was taken at the end of Grassmarket. I used an F value of 5.3, a shutter speed of 1/80s and the ISO was set to 400, all to create an accurate exposure, but to also allow for a depth of field where the majority of the picture was in focus . This picture of red telephone box was taken in Grassmarket. I used a f value of 5 to reduce the depth of field and focus the image more on the telephone box which is in the forground. the shutter speed was at 1/60s and the ISO at 400 as to gain accurate exposure of the telephone box on the dull day that I decided to take this picture on. This image was captured on the campus of Heriot-Watt University, as part of the tree trail there. this was just one of my ideas where I was reminded of the Bastian Grivet painting where the light coming in from the background, but I also planned to make the forground darker. I chose an f value of 3.5 for this photo, so that the focus was more on the forground and that the sky was made brighter. The ISO was set to 800 and the shutter speed to 1/100s, as the day was quite sunny and I wanted to get a darker look in the trees, but also keep the brightness of the sky. This is a picture that I acquired near Fountainbridge of a telephone/cash machine. I had the idea to put this into the bushes of my tree trail image, to makie it look like the machine had become un used and had blended in with nature, this was to create a dystopian feel to my image. The f value was set to 5 to create a I I
