This is my first actual thread here in AC. Please bare with me. I'm a photography major entering my junior year and the cards have fallen such that I am taking no photography related courses this quarter and probably next quarter. I'm getting quite restless and while I purely despise a few of my classes, I'm actually producing some pretty decent pieces even though it is 'homework.' The two assignments below are two of such works. I'd like to see how you guys like 'em and maybe if this is something I should probably tool around with in my free time if it seems I have some prowess in it.
Travel poster from another era. I chose Rapture. Background buildings were traced from landmarks (name em if you can). Inspiration came from the Metropolis movie poster. It's not underwatery enough, so I will probably later add a silhouette of a school of fish or a shark or something.
And this assignment I just finished today. We had to design a map so I chose the GTA3 classic region, Portland. Plenty of tracing which isn't too challenging. A few more effects were toyed with which got it to look and feel more like a map. The emblems were fun to recreate with vectors though the key I feel is tacked on as it is 'necessary' for the map.
Anyhow, please critique. I think each piece needs a bit more TLC, but for something I consider a diversion from the main attraction, eh, not bad.
