CGMA Assignment!

So I recently just finished moving, and I finally got my computer and Cintiq up and running. Sorta. It's somewhat temporary because I still have to move them out of the room again as I get my carpet steam cleaned, but the moving experience + my job has unfortunately gotten in the way of my homeworking for my CGMA class, which I'm not thrilled about.  At the office, we're in crunch mode with material I can't talk about, but it's been a pretty hectic time there.

CGMA Class!

So like I mentioned before, I've been taking James Paick's Environment Design for Entertainment 1 class.  It's been going pretty well and I've definitely been learning a lot and practicing things I would definitely not have practiced otherwise.  I thought I'd go ahead post up my first two homework assignments for you guys to see:

    It's been a struggle doing these outside of my normal job, but it's been insanely worth it.  The first two weeks have pretty much been focusing exclusively on composition, value distribution, and lighting.  I think I spectacularly failed in some of these areas and I think I succeeded in others.  I notice that I'm falling into comfort zones in terms of how I organize my values, but for now I'm going to try to just internalize the lessons and deal with repeating myself after I'm more comfortable with the material.
