Sketches and Scribbles
Today I've been reading closely, the two books I've been given (The Fall of the House of Usher and The Pit and the Pendulum), and have highlighted all the important bits of description which will help to build a picture in my mind of what to create.
From that I've also been doing a few rough sketches while writing a list of words from what I've highlighted.
I have also found other reference images off the internet too, as well as a book with images of Gothic style architecture. These images help in imagining an atmosphere.
I preferred metropolis to the last film. I especially liked the beginning with all the machinery working. it was weird seeing people dressed in old fashioned styles in a sci fi film though. The city shots were good except for the old aeroplanes which looked quite silly.
Life drawing in next post. (my phone ran out of power so I couldn't use the camera)
