Ok so the past two weeks have not been the most productive weeks! On top of dragging my feet, “life got in the way” but things have improved and after completing my learning contract and starting my dissertation contents page my motivation appears to have come back and I can now focus clearly! This weekend I intend to have the house modelled and i’ll post pictures of the progress :D Only 6 weeks left to complete the animation and a further week to get the dissertation done but as I always say I work better under pressure!
Ok so once again I have changed my mind on the style of the house I want to build but I feel that there is more scope for change with this house and I can envisage more ideas with it as well! The first image is the new house and the rest are ideas that I want to do within the story to create different moods.
More Inspiration! I was in a gallery where I live and came across an artist whose work I love, Tracy Savage. I love her imaginative, quirky “Tim Burton” style and will definitely be taking inspiration from her work and purchasing a canvas in the future!
While my project is based on mood I have never defined what I MEAN by mood. What I am trying to do is create an animation with strong senses of emotion both in the environment and with the viewer. The moods I wish to create in the animation are happiness, sadness etc. The story of the animation is about a house that has just been built and then as the years go by the house decays due to lack of attention by the owner and the animation ends up sad and falling apart.
Seeing as how my animation has changed, I have also had to rethink the design of the house and so I am taking inspiration from this one as I feel that I can do a lot to it through out the moods.
Psychology of interior design is also dependent on the person’s knowledge of the colour’s historical use. For example, dark greens were traditionally used for banking, dark purple is historically equated to kings and royalty.
Red - increases blood pressure and appetite
Terra Cotta - evokes muted feelings of desire
Blue, Brown and Green (earth tones) - offer a feeling of tranquility, browns can offer a feeling of security while greens offer neutrality
Light purple - has a calming effect
Grey - works well for productivity (used in many offices)
Black - hints at being submissive
Yellow - Can either evoke happiness or anger. This colour is like marmite, you either love it or you hate it. People who like yellow like it immensely and those who dislike it, dislike it completely.
