Overall Concept + Character Ideas

"A space-faring cricket team crash land on a lush alien planet, unknown to what secrets inhabit the sacred green they now walk upon"


1: 32, male. B-movie style bubble helmet space uniform with elements of traditional cricket uniform insignia. Happy-go-lucky, quick to run. 

2: 29, female. Much like above she wears a shiny space uniform with coloured stripes. Smart, sly, cautious.

3: 17, male. B-movie style bubble helmet space uniform with elements of traditional cricket uniform insignia. Shy, wary, quietly confident under pressure.

Custom Brush Experimentation + Environment Exploration






By using photographs of the mark-making experimentations I created in previous lessons, I started to extract custom brushes and shapes within Photoshop from various elements of these pieces to then use later on in digital format. Within the greyscale images above I started to throw down a number of different shapes that I had found my mark-making experiments and began to paint with them, creating a series of environmental pieces. The marks I created were completely unique and, by merging these with the infinite number of possibilities that the brush manager in Photoshop allows, I was able to paint in a new style that had marks only I had created. From this I decided to push the environment ideas further, looking more into my interpretation of the Echoing Green poem and creating a scene based around one part of the story.
