    EOW# 54 Two houses, both alike in dignity, In Verona's fair city



    EOW# 54 Two houses, both alike in dignity, In Verona's fair city

    This is a very specific Brief. You may recognize it. I am not specifying a time period. It could be Renaissance, It could be POst Apocalyptic, It could be anything in between, It will require research. And I expect it to be uniquely your vision and be incredibly stylish

    Required Elements

    Italian
    2 houses

    note of caution: this is about the environment.. not about the characters



    I will accept any medium.
    Now... concept!



    Due May 15


    Description NOT required, say what you need to say visually!

    Oh, great. I'm currently applying to an architecture school so this should be good practise. So I guess I'll be focusing on modern architecture on this

    Background....
    Note: this is not a stage set... I want an Environment

    PROLOGUE

    Two households, both alike in dignity,
    In fair Verona, where we lay our scene,
    From ancient grudge break to new mutiny,
    Where civil blood makes civil hands unclean.
    From forth the fatal loins of these two foes
    A pair of star-cross'd lovers take their life;
    Whole misadventured piteous overthrows
    Do with their death bury their parents' strife.
    The fearful passage of their death-mark'd love,
    And the continuance of their parents' rage,
    Which, but their children's end, nought could remove,
    Is now the two hours' traffic of our stage;
    The which if you with patient ears attend,
    What here shall miss, our toil shall strive to mend.

    Possible things to include

    Act 1, Scene 1: Verona. A public place.
    Act 1, Scene 2: A street.
    Act 1, Scene 3: A room in Capulet's house.
    Act 1, Scene 4: A street.
    Act 1, Scene 5: A hall in Capulet's house.

    Act 2, Prologue: PROLOGUE
    Act 2, Scene 1: A lane by the wall of Capulet's orchard.
    Act 2, Scene 2: Capulet's orchard.
    Act 2, Scene 3: Friar Laurence's cell.
    Act 2, Scene 4: A street.
    Act 2, Scene 5: Capulet's orchard.
    Act 2, Scene 6: Friar Laurence's cell.

    Act 3, Scene 1: A public place.
    Act 3, Scene 2: Capulet's orchard.
    Act 3, Scene 3: Friar Laurence's cell.
    Act 3, Scene 4: A room in Capulet's house.
    Act 3, Scene 5: Capulet's orchard.

    Act 4, Scene 1: Friar Laurence's cell.
    Act 4, Scene 2: Hall in Capulet's house.
    Act 4, Scene 3: Juliet's chamber.
    Act 4, Scene 4: Hall in Capulet's house.
    Act 4, Scene 5: Juliet's chamber.

    Act 5, Scene 1: Mantua. A street.
    Act 5, Scene 2: Friar Laurence's cell.
    Act 5, Scene 3: A churchyard; in it a tomb belonging to the Capulets.

    To see the world in a grain of sand, and a heaven in a wildflower, hold infinity in the palm of your hand, and eternity in an hour.

    so when you say the requirement is 'italian' you mean the architecture or landscape should reflect italy or an italian stylee?

    Two rival corporations vie for power in the small city of Verona, one a greedy giant mega corp looking to suck the life blood from the small farming communities and exploit the cheap labor of the city, and one who wished to restore the town to it's once grand serene state. On the brink of corporate war the homes and people of Verona stand in the middle of a storm.



    I really wanted to push the detail on this more, but I think 3 hours a day for 5 days is more then enough to work on one peice. This is unfortunatly as far as I could get it.

    Did I make a mistake using 3 point?

    Alot of concept artists use what tools are available to them to get the work done. using 3d as a base to get perspective is not wrong at all. You can use it. But, remember that composition and moodsetting, will play the major roll in creating a successful piece. That is what I am trying discover right now. Good luck though. XD

    If you mean using 3d models as a base, I didn't do that. I used 3 point perspective in ps. I guess thats kinda a compliment though Thanks.

    Not necessarily. The third vanishing point needs to be far lower, though. There's some serious warpage going on.

    Oh I misunderstood you the Unbrella man. Environment include perspective so it fine. But, I think the depth in your piece is blown and that the perspective is a bit forced. You should consider moving your vanishing points further away. Also the turning path doesn't help much to give believability that there is depth in your work. And you also need atmospheric perspective to give it depth.

    [updated] Ah, there’s so much that could still be fixed in this, but I lack the will to go on. Mike, you’re right about my perspective. I was curious as to whether I could creep up on correct perspective rather than starting with a drawing and then stiffly trying not to obliterate the lines. I think the answer is yes, I can do it this way, but I need to not rush it as much as I did. At any rate, that’s my lousy excuse for the squishy perspective.

    My goal with this was to portray a passable fantasy version of historic Verona, in an arrangement setup that could be used on a stage production of Romeo and Juliet.

    as finished as it is going to get.



    Seedling - you're playing a little loose with the perspective and cast shadows, but its probably the oil paint getting in the way. The objects in your scene are being lit from different positioned lights and the resulting light logic creates a inconsistent and confusing image. You may also want to consider the relative scale of the human you have placed in the scene and his size in relation to things in the environment - doors, windows, stairs, etc. He appears rather small in relation to them.

    Unbrella man here is a quick paintover of what I think you should do for depth and focus. the design is not the best either. But, you will learn that over time. I am still trying to get better design, always! I hope this is useful to you! XD

    EOW #54: D-Holme

    Chaos (and all) - I've been putting something together to try to enter this but wondered whether an additional 24 hours would be available on this one?

    Finalised Image

    The hold-manse of the industrialist Montague family looks out across the Bay of Verona at the seat of the aristocratic Capulets. Tensions between the two families have increased with recent bloodshed, now the Prince’s armoured cruiser Augustine lies at anchor, charged with maintaining the civil peace.

    @beelow: Thanks for the suggestions. My composition is pretty much a mess. I'll probably bow out of this one, but I am definatly seeing an improvement each time I do one of these, so I'll probably keep doing them until I get better. I really should have done a more zoomed out version of this so I wouldn't have to be so freaking exact with everything. Oh well live and learn. Thanks again for the help.
