Eerie Silence...?

Ghosts...murder...the dead...morbid....blood...gore...truly horrific images...axe

Is the genre of my comic.

The Amityville Murders.

The Amityville Horror - Is a movie based on the true story.

So my project for Nick is to make a comic/story board based on a poem I chose from the list which is situated below.

I'm not entirely sure how I got from that poem to Amityville based, but hell, it's given me one hellova booster, I'm really excited to start and finish this because I feel it's very very different from what other students have done in the past.

I'm still not sure If I'll have characters in my story, but since Amityville is a story about a guy  whom had, let's say bad childhood ends up killing his father along with the rest of his family. I've read all kinds of stuff on this story on this website, just roughly, mind.
    In the movie the main character finds out the house was built on an Indian burial site... Now that sounds about right but I can't be sure until I've researched this more. I'll come back to it when I have more information at hand. There is a DVD and a book  I want to watch/read as they're documentaries on the Amityville Murders' themselves; DVDbook.

Now to really help you/me visualise this, here are my moodboards.
I made another one because I felt I needed to, which is the genre.

To help you visualize the style/aesthetics moodboard, here's the grayscale version to keep in with the morbid scene

Alriiiight, my next task to make one of the following;

A) 2 A3 model sheet of assorted characters (If I end up going with the idea to have some)
B) 2 A3 non-character design sheets of visual elements, style experimentation.

When I was first assigned with this task I wasn't very sure what I wanted, I just knew this poem was psychedelic in a way and needed that element. I didn't think I would need characters but... Yep, Amityville has changed my mind and I am now stuck :'D

Wish me luck!

...P.S. I'm poop scared from looking at all those images.

As in [ space ] or space?

Well, I'll be talking about space as in planets in this post :D
The Ceramics pieces / project that I haven't yet posted is now being posted :D


Anyway, here it is. And the edited versions of it

 I'll admit I went a bit mental on the last image - as in PhotoShop happy! But I think it turned out well. Originally the image looked something like this...

Hamilton Inspired

Nick's Class

A very creative title(!) Er...

Nick's class!

Actually Nick's class is about comics :D and... visual context where I gotta deconstruct the form of text in a 2000 word essay -_- Yippie. I'm writing my essay on JMW Turner - The Battle of Trafalgar.

I'm still working on the second assignment, actually, but I'll definitely get it completed in good time! What I have to do is recreate this piece in modern time. Richard Hamilton

Er... oh, there's this that I needed to post:

It's my cubist portrait of my tutor, Nick! I used tracing paper on all angles, then I cut and put it together and then scanned it. Then used photoshop to add that earthy brown colour I've seen countless times on cubist portraits. That's my final piece.

Hmm.. oh, and we had to create a comic in black and white.

I do apologise the second part is blurry! I drew these final prints on a3 paper and my scanner is only a4 so... camera shake it was :'D

I've now gotta recreate this, or hopefully just create another comic using only 6 - 9 panels and 1 or 2 transitional panels due in next week.

So that's it for my update :3
