Once Upon A Blue Book – Shawn, Chloe & Ryan.

Once Upon A Blue Book

In the quiet part of the library sits a hopeful book patiently waiting for someone to pick him up and read him, he sits quietly on the dusty shelves looking at all the university students walk past him. Hopeful that someone will find some use of him one day, Bryan patiently waits to be lifted from his boring state. The unexpected one day finally happens as Sam, an art history major picks Bryan up and browses him along with the other books waiting to be borrowed. Along the way to the counter, Sam bumps into another student and drops Bryan by accident. Without knowing Bryan was left behind, Sam continues to walk away leaving Bryan to fend for himself. Will Bryan stay still on the ground and hope for Sam to notice, chase after him? Or will he be left for the librarian to come by and return him back onto the shelves to live the rest of his boring life. Bryan goes on a journey through the library as he tries to make his way back to Sam without the notice of anyone in the library! Along his journey he will meet new books that experience the same fate as they join forces to make their way to the counter and leave their horrid lives on the shelves.



Visual Storytelling – Project 2 – My Creation




My Creation, is a interactive storytelling through WIX using 15 images to tell a story. 
As Human experimenting has always been part of his dream to fulfill. James, a mad scientist who started his first few experiments on dogs that he kidnapped around his neighborhood.
On the day 104th of his final experiment, He drugged his entire family and proceed with his experiment which he planned long ago. As he completed his experiments, he decided to hibernate himself inside the chamber.

This is our very first time, trying something new by using 15 images or more to create our very own story. I felt that it’s very similar to our storyboarding in filmmaking but in a different way because it is more like freezing in the moment instead of something involving in time.

I personally felt that this is a very interesting project for us to explore and also to allow us to pre-plan the whole story structures.

We are also allowed to use various mediums to construct the 15 image but for this project, I uses photoshop to photo manipulate and composite them all together. One of the challenges that I faced is that it is difficult to keep all 15 images consistency and proper fit them into the story.  One solution, is that you have to keep all the photographs in a consistence color tones.

Assignment 1 – Slice of This Existence – Fictional Character

First Version – B&W

Character Brief

This was my very first character that I designed using photoshop. I wanted to create the leading lines using nuclear missiles but after the presentation I was asked to further improved on my designs.

The Bulb representing he is a smart person, he’s a thinker.

The Suits representing he’s rich in a way and also well presentable.

Final Design

I decided to redesign my fictional character as my previous work was quite messy in a way. The overall design is based in a futuristic lab with HUD screen at the background, a robotic arm and the body scanner as Tony Starks owns many latest technologies in the market.

New York city was also put in at the background of the HUD.

The subject is also wearing a suits to represent that he is well presentable and also a white collar. I also input the color red to represent ironman as the color red has the characteristic of it. The arc rector is one of the most iconic object in the movie, without it he won’t be able to stay alive.

The New Element is an element that researched and theorised by Howard Stark his father. The element generates power similar to the Tesseract which his father found and studied in the years following World War II. That’s why I decided to put in the Tesseract because its somehow relates to ironman.

The foreground also added a camera interface as, Tony Starks is always recording during his experimental of new armour and weapon. 

The ideation behind this design took me quite awhile but after some researched of the ironman characteristic and putting the elements, I really love the new design that I created.
