Thumbnails Development

These thumbnails are just sketches of how I could develop what I have already produce for this piece. So I have looked at adding a light source by adding a moon which could help with the mood that I am trying to create. Also have looked at how i could create trees in the front that will not cover up the house of Usher in the background.

Photoshop - The fall of the House of Usher

For one of my three final pieces I have chosen the external description of the house of usher. So here is my development of how I pictured the house of Usher to look like from the description in the text.   

In the text it talks of eye like windows so development of the windows is need and I think that I need to add more detail to it to make it more gothic and creepy .

Photoshop - The Pit and the Pendulum

I think that moving the vanishing point like Phil suggested has help with what I was trying to get across. Which is the prison is long but small in width. Now I just cant decided which one would be the best or if I should play around with the vanishing point a bit more .

Photoshop - The Pit and the Pendulum

For one of my final concept piece's I have decided to with  the scene in The Pit and Pendulum were he finally wakes up in his prison and what he imagines the prison to look like as it is darkness at that moment. So here is the development from my original thumbnail. The first couple of images are experiment with the perspective till I found one that suits the description. Now I am adding the things that are in the text such as the door that quickly opens, the stone walls etc.

@Phil : I have been looking back through the the brief to check that I am on the right track and I saw  that it ask for 5 preparatory studies for each painting. I was wondering what exactly is the brief asking me to do because I am starting to worry that I haven't done this stage.

Research Photos

These are just a few photos that I took to help me with the description that I picked from The fall of the House of Usher. He talks of his dreary tract of the country and I thought that I could use these photos to influence my idea so far. Also you can see a lot of different textures that could influence my ideas.  

Influence Map - The house of Usher

Now that I have got an idea of what my house of usher will look like now I have to concentrate on the detials of the house for example the windows. So this influence map has help given me some ideas of how I can add detail to give the effect of creepy and spooky. Which in the description I picked is how the house is described.

More Thumbnail Sketches

These thumbnail sketch's are of the the house of Usher. I used charcoal and chalk to help me with these sketch because I seemed to be struggling with the perspective of the house.

This final thumbnail is what I pictured the house of Usher to look like and the perspective seems to looks right. The next step is to put into photoshop and develop it further.

Photoshop - The Fall of the House of Usher Development

After finding the right perspective that i wanted for this idea I experiment with how I wanted the house to be seen so I made it so that it looks as if you are looking through a forest. Now I think that I need to focus on the house in the background and find away to make it look as if is far away.

I that this is going to one of my three final ideas but it does need further development but I am happy with the progress of it so far.
