Unit Two: Space

*Update to paragraph 1. All the sets were leaning over, flat with details drawn on. it looked like a stage show. Its wasn't realistic but very abstract. It felt like something from Alice in Wonderland.

Today I watched the film The Cabinet of Dr Caligari.

To be honest I got lost and didn't understand what was going on.
*Not much else to say about it.

The two books I've got for the new project are The Fall of the House of Usher and The Pit and the Pendulum. I have started to read the latter of the two as it is slightly shorter. The last time I attempted a digital concept painting it came out so terrible, i cant imagine what its going to be like this time. After reading the story's I should know where to go with the creative side of the project. As for the essay, I will definitely be looking at a film rather than a game although I haven't chosen what one yet.

I do hope that i can improve my Photoshop painting skills over the next four weeks.


  1. Hey Ethan - about the film; at least tell me this - 'what did it LOOK like?' What about all those strange, distorted sets?

  2. the sets, in my opinion gave that extra mood to the all film, really influencial.

  3. Hi Ethan! Don't wory about your digital concept painting ability just yet - you have lessons coming up, remember! Just work on some design ideas for now, and the rest will follow.... Jackie
