F2D 2 Project 1: Process and Research

The future job I wish do are fragrance evaluator (given up),
astronomer, cellist, chef. So here are my sketches.


0213_2My future job as fragrance evaluator was given up, because of some problems with the composition.

My first future job is: astronomer

0213_2The first draft of sketch was given up because the composition of the image is too messy.


For the second draft of sketch, I tried to substitute my name into physics equation,(use physics equation to form my name), but my classmate said they would misunderstood that I am a mathematician. So I decided to use stars to form my name, which is the second image.


But I found that a bit boring. Meanwhile, I noticed that the background couldn’t really remind people of starry sky. So I changed the background.

Large clouds of gas glowing deep in space
(Large clouds of gas glowing deep in space)
Group shot of astronomers stood in field viewing night sky through telescopes.
(Group shot of astronomers stood in field viewing night sky through telescopes.)

In order to give a hint that I am an astronomer, I looked for the image of astronomer with telescopes. Also the direction of the telescope will  guide the audience to focus on the physical equation.

Here is my first image.

1So the final image of astronomer include the symbol of starry sky, physical equation, man and telescopes.


My second future job is: judge


Initially I wanted to hind my name inside some objects like gavel and balance, but it was not that obvious. So the first draft was given up.

I searched for image of judge, the judge’s wig gave me inspiration. Then I decided to use wig form my name, which is the second draft of sketch.



I looked for some images online also.



Here is my second image.

I chose the color of brown as background in contrast with the foreground white to make my name stand out.

2So the final image of judge included the symbol of wig, gavel, balance and book.

My third dream job is: cellist


I decided to use music notes to form my name.

Here are some images I found online.



free-abstract-sound-waves-hd-wallpapers-1920x1200For background, I wanted to use sound wave to give a hint that I am a musician.  The problem for using the first image is that the background is too bright, interfere the deliver of visual information. So I use the second image instead. But the problem comes again, the x and y axes are too black, and interfere the image. I did try change the background color. But finally find a way to solve the problem.




Here is my third image. (Sorry I don’t know why but the color (especially background color) is weird when I upload it onto oss)

Anyway, the background color which is the cold color, in contrast with the foreground (cello) which is the warm color, to give more energy to the image.

3So the final image of cellist included the symbol of cello, music notes and sound wave.


My fourth future job is: chef


I looked for image online also.


Initially I wanted to use different food to form my name, but I felt that it was a bit boring. Instead of using English name, I decided to use Chinese name. I choose one Chinese character within my name, which is Jing “婧”. I looked for different version of “婧”.

I noticed that the 篆体 version of “婧” seems to be more interesting than the 楷体 version of “婧”. It is more dynamic and it flows. It is curly like spaghetti. So I decide to make the image of a plate of food with my name “婧” hidden like spaghetti inside.

Here is my fourth image.


So the final image of chef included the symbol of spaghetti, cabbage, broccoli and beef steak.



During the process. I did face some difficulties for the idea forming and editing. So I made different drafts but luckily come up with the final. I am appreciate the process as it is a chance to improve myself.

F4D 2 project 1: Fan-fiction

(This story is written based on Natasha’s Virtual Reality Story that she created. I used her story’s essences and created this fan-fiction of mine.)


Part 1




A little girl was reading a story book about traveler. She was excited about it then turned to her mum.

“Mama, does traveler really exist?”

The mother smiled to the girl.

“I don’t know darling. I have never see them before.”

“Look at this mum”. The girl was attracted by one of the image in the book. “Travelers are gift!” The girl shouted loudly.” I want a traveler as Christmas gift mum!” She was too excited that her neck turned red.

“I wish I can give that for you honey, but I am not able to.” The mum said.

At a corner of the library. A boy heard this conversation. He’s face was pale. He lowered his hat so that nobody could see his blue feather around his ear.

“That is the nature of human”

The boy was shocked by the voice, his face was even paler.

“Calm down, boy.”

The boy raised up his courage, then raises his head. He saw an old man in front of him.

“Don’t be scared…” The old man got closer to the boy then spoke besides the boy’s ear.

“Because…” The old man smiled. “I am also a traveler.”


Part 2




The boy seated on the chair. He couldn’t stop looking at the old man.

“He is a traveler! Same as me!” The boy told himself. He couldn’t control his excitement.

People seldom heard about travelers in this century. Those special race of people who have ability to ability to turn back time were being largely captured by human. They are treated like gifts, slaves and being killed, only a few of travelers stayed alive. In order to protect themselves, some of them escape from cities, some of them hide in the city.

“You seems to be happy to meet me” The old man said.

The boy smiled, but soon he looked nervous by kept observing the surrounding.

“No worried, this café is a club for traveler. It is safe here.” The man noticed his nervous, he gave the boy a cup of coffee.

“As a traveler, what do you think about yourself?” he asked.

“Mom said rewind (time-travel) is the ability that human never have. It is a gift that god gives us.” The boy said it proudly.

“I used to think it that way too.” The old man signed. He looked at a certain point in the air as if there are something there.

“But the truth is that, rewind is not a gift, it will never ever be a gift. It is a punishment.”

It is summer, the café is hot, but the boy felt as cold as it is winter. He could imagine his blood became red ice. He wanted to speak, but found himself hard to express. Before he made sound, the old man said something again.

“By the way, my name is Abel, nice to meet you.”


Part 3




“Those people kidnapped both of us. The man shot me. Eden was too scared to move. I had no choice but snapped my seal with her hands. Before I heard the next shot, I was gone.”

“Then?” The boy asked curiously. “When did you find her again?

“Never.” The old man said.

“What?” The boy was shock.

“I couldn’t find her from then on. I was alone for 60 years.”

“Is she dead?” The boy soon realized that he asked a silly question. The Traveler’s lifespan is bound to the lifespan of his host. If Abel is alive, Eden must be alive.

“I traveled to the past thousand times, before we were kidnapped and before the man shot me, trying to change the past.

The boy’s facial expression became strange when he heard his. He hesitated for a few second, then said: “Don’t you know that…”

“Yes, I know.” The old man looked tiring. “One of the theory for time travel says that…”

“Even when parties travel back in time, the future they left cannot be changed.” The boy helped him said that out.


“Rewind is not a gift, it is a punishment.” Now I believe that what you said. The boy signed.













F4D Meta: Fashion

For fashion, I am inspired by the fashion during Jin dynasty. Here is the background information of Jin dynasty.

“The Jin dynasty distinguished as the Sima Jin and Liang Jin, was a Chinesesdynasty, empire, and era traditionally dated from ad 265 to 420. It was founded by Sima Yan son of Sima Zhaowho was made Prince of Jinand posthumously declared the founder of the dynasty. It followed the Three Kingdomsperiod (220-280 AD), which ended with the conquest of Eastern Wuby the Jin.”

Here are some costume during that dynasty.



During Jin Dynasty, government officials have their official robe depending on the hierarchy from official rank 1 to grade 9 (descending). Officials above rank 5 wear purple robe. Officials  in rank 6 or below grade 6 wears red and green robe. I am inspired from this.

In my world, the costume will be similar to the style of costume during Jin dynasty. For government officials, S wears green robes, SS wears red robes and SSS wears purple robes.


F4D 2 Meta: Authority

For authority, I am inspired by the animation Gangsta


In this animation, those people who called “twilight” has the superpower include 5 grade: S, A, B, C, D (descending). I am inspired from this.

  In my world. People’s superpower is from SSS, SS, S, A, B, C (descending) . The society’s hierarchy is determined by people’s degree of power. C will enter lower class, B will enter middle class, A will enter upper class. Those people who have power above S will  work in government. SSS will have the strongest authority.

  Most people don’t have emotion connection to their family. But for those people  who have emotion connection to their family, would like do training to increase their superpower. By increase their superpower, their will be able to enter higher hierarchy in society and then provide better quality of life for their family.  However, once their power and social status change, government will reassign them into a new family. So here is the dilemma. In order to find out the secret about how exactly the government assign their citizens into different family, some people increase their superpower above S then work for government. But those people who work for government will lose their memory, of course, lose their family. This is the opportunity cost.
