WHAT THE GDCP HAS DONE


ANIMAL FARM

E FOR ME


Capstone project

CAPSTON PROJECT.

Scientists There are two things that I love most: history and games. I always remember my mother bought me a set of comic book introduce the histroy of Chian. And I fall in love with these old stroy. I always wish my works can be educational, and now I an challenge myself. Photograph of participants of the first Solvay Conference, in 1911, Brussels, Belgium. Photo credit: Benjamin Couprie.


Capstone project

Early Phase Style Examination At first, I wish to make a set of cards content with historical person and event. But first I have to decide which type of style should choose to be the main concept of my work. I look over different kinds of work such as Comics, animation, kids book, games or artist. I spend Christmas holiday to duplicate and analyze the style or work I loved. Throughout mount of copy-base practice. It comes to two thought: 1. must keep my style simple in order to create a huge amount of works because each card needs a work, and my works will include at least over 30 cards. 2. Utilize the pinball pen and colour marker will be my main mechanism. I have to admit that I still changing drawing style after I comes out these conclusion, but each time I doing it, I always got new insperations to my work.


Capstone project

This drawing is me trying to create my characters with the style of a game “Darkest Dungeon“, even though I don’t choose this style, but I learned that it is possible to control pure black and white. I always want to try these style. Using huge acale of pure black to creat an hopeless and unsafe felling. And most important of all, I realize that I can do it. It kind of enhances my confidence.

Style Examination


Capstone project

My weakness is colour so this I has to find my own way to put colour on. Mucha’s works include very beautiful line and lots of detail was done with line as well. It is the style I want. During practice, I started to understand how to proform shades or the detail with pinball pen. Sometimes I question myself. am I escaping to put the colour on?

Capstone project

Here I learned the style of a game I used to play before. Japanese style colouring using large pieces of colour to create their work, I analyze the pattern and how they perform light and shade. Also how they design attractive characters. Big eyes, small mouth and mini nose are the factors I find in these characters. This is the style I love but it might take too much time to detailing it. As the result, I didn’t pick it.


Capstone project

Early Phase Game Design

At the very beginning, I want to make a game with a large scale of contents. After few weeks of t tutoring, accepting advice from various angle. I started to decrease the content I will include.

Started with all of human history, narrowing down to the artworks, inventions and discovery a Finally, I focused on only scientists and their accomplishment. Learning how to measure the pro quantity and quality. I face lots of mistake or miscalculation many times. The game rule is being ing the whole production process. I am sure that time was wasted in this part. It might be the big made in this project.

“Because at last, it is an communicate design course, not game design.” Said by one of my classm

Capstone project

Mid Phase Card Design Inorder to design a card, I started to collect cards from my memories, find out the patten and ways to located imformation in a small cards. Finally comes out three main matirial to create a card. 1. Main drawing 2. Interface to place imformation 3.Card back

Capstone project

Althought theses card design is quite well, but I can’t find the card back I’m satisfide with.


Capstone project

Interface prototype I make some design for the interface, but the direction of the word isn’t work very well. Text might be block by the drawing. So I change my design once again.

Capstone project

Card back prototype

In the part of card back, I recollect some cardback once again. This time I aim on the card back of tarrot. And develop it into four card back prototype.

The first prototype was inspired by the card back on the left, I find out that might too similar to it. So I make the second attempt add some material of stained glasses and the detailing learn from previous work, here comes a satisfying work.


Capstone project

These two pic are the other reserch I made. Rightone takes reference from the american tottoms. Right one take reference from a set of tarot I found online.


Capstone project

Card back Design I took lots of time to find the best card back, there are many mistakes. Maybe today I weak up in the morning and thinking that might be another or better way to design card back. And I will take all day to finish it. Sometimes I finish it, sometimes I give up in the middle of the drawing. An idea comes from a quote of Newton, but I didn’t choose it as my card back because of the style doesn’t fit the main drawing

Card back Design The left one takes reference from the traffic sign, but the colour and style matching become problems. The right one fall because it will take too much time and will not work eventually. Card back is vert knotty to me.

Capstone project

Late Phase Character Design My aim at first is very simple, find a scientist and transform his picture or painting into a character, it’s a simple task. However, I faced some problems while working on it. First, what kind of pose should I use? If there are two people in one drawing. What kind of pose is the best? My solution is taken reference from another artwork. Learn the knowledge of the structure of a scenario.

The process of my character design, find target scientist’s picture, find out the special part on their in their face, and transform them into a cartoon style characters. In the case of Wright brother, I took their chin as their characteristic.


Capstone project

Caravaggio,(1601) Supper at Emmaus. National Portrait Gallery, London. The pose on the left down takes reference from actual artwork.

After character design, the second challenge is the pose of each character, most of the pose concept come from any type of art form like Movie, Poster, Fashion magazin...etc


Capstone project

Character Design In this examination, I start to transform the original cartoon character into a story of a scientist. The pose of a cat holding a bird changed into the famous story of Archimedes: he is so happy about his discovery, he can’t wait to tell King about his discovery. So he runs on the street nake

characters to my friends, I estion that if I can make my vid. So I started doing research observe how to make a characwonderful.

Observe how to express emotion with face. And implement it right into my character.


Capstone project

Character Design Marie Curie After the second research on character design, I started again on Marie Curie. While I reading her story, she finally died because expose in radiation, an idea pops up in my mind. If Marie Curie lives in modern society, what will her daily life look like? Maybe she will wear an anti-radiant suit on to protect herself. And it changes my direction in character design.


Capstone project

The original design of Marie Curie card, I give this ideal up because I think it is too easy to just duplicate how they dress in the picture. I want to challenge myself.

Pose reference is from one of the card game I have played before.


Capstone project

Character Design Marie Curie

This is my favourite one But I take the advice that might too sexy for kids. So I didn’t use it as my final outcome.


Capstone project


Capstone project

Character Design Galileo Galilei In the case of Galilei, I use the story of he being prison by the church because of his study is against the bible. In order to create funny faces. I also take lots of reference from other artwork I use this face to simulate the angry of the judge.

Shocked face while Galileo hears the judgment.

Character Design Galileo Galilei A awyer point out the somting handsomely at the court

I develope my idea into a assumption, If Galileo lives in modern sosiety, he will try to redeem himself by faceing court at court. So I wnat to creat scenario of he point out the critical evidence that his was right all alone.

Animal Farm


Animal Farm

ANIMAL FARM Book Cover Sometimes, a book cover can determine the sell rate of a book, but I think, a good book cover should content with hidden hint of the actual book content. in this project, I have tried a new way to finish my work. Chose only 3 colour to put colour on. I treat this project as a big examination of my drawing skill. And I also find some problem with others works and improve it in my way. This is a storybook full of sarcasm to many social phenomena. After reading it, I tried to in the cloud the story and express it in an interesting way, not point out the main idea of the book directly. I know it is an old book, but I still think spoiling is not a good idea.


Animal Farm

Primary Research

I read hole book at the very beginning, and I do many reseach of the author, understanding his political situation. Here is some note I made for it.


Animal Farm


Animal Farm

Primary Research In art style choosing, I look over other designers’ book covers for the animal farm. Here is my discovery: 1. Pigs 2. A large scale of red 3. hidden symbol of the Soviet Union I decided to follow pattern 1 and 2, the reason I didn’t choose pattern 3 is that book is a sarcasm on soviet union, but I think the hidden information should be kept in hidden. it’s author’s effort, I don’t want to break it.


Animal Farm

This work used three colour on hole work, this factor draws my attention, as a result, I start to try this style by my self.


Animal Farm

Secondary Research George Orwell write this book not only to be ironic, it also shows his concern about the worker, in the main story, animals can be considered as worker level. Although they exile human from the farm, they can’t be really free, they just change a patron. They are all the chess in the game call power and right. So I transform animals into card and chess to create the feeling of being manipulated. It also embodies the ending of the story, the scenario of pigs gambling with other human

What GDCP Has done For Me. Series of books, project pass one by one, I start to notice what I have changed so far. Is it mindful changing? or pure skill improving? I really like the feeling to question myself. I took serious of the night of meditation, and there are so many thought and inspiration I discovered. I tried to finish my work by looking back my past. What actually create me. An event? A thing? A person? Thinking out loud and enjoy what GDCP did for me once and once again.


What GDCP has done forme

Primary Research To create my own manifesto, find the different resource. Most of them are the quote from my favourite artist, and I organized them into different categories. Fear and horror was my largest weakness, so I want to create a work that shows my worry and my brave at the same time.

I check the feedback I got before to find my weakness

What GDCP done for me? I remember the day I left Taiwan, during the way to airport my father asked me: “Son, I never doubt your decisions. But this time I’m curious, can you tell me why you want to be an artist (my father said it in mandarin, there is an confusion between artiest and designer in old generation, in here I take it as artiest)?”. I stayed silence for a moment. Than I cried, not only the feeling of leaving home, it also because I don’t know the answer. Actually, cannot answering my father’s question was the main reason. Here comes this question once again, I think I know the answer right now. I afraid of taking flight for a long time. Every time I need to take a flight, insomnia will stay with me 1 month before the flight. Yes, I’m afraid of death. I remember when I was a child, I saw a Snoopy cartoon. In that episode a little girl is be diagnose with cancer, I forgot the ending of it. I remember I was horrify with “death” for a long time, I will cry for no reason just because I think of none can be alive forever, someday I will die as well. Moreover, I might die young just like the girl in that cartoon. There is a quote from an artist Banksy: “I mean, they say you die twice. One time when you stop breathing and a second time, a bit later on, when somebody says your name for the last time.” Now I understand and here is my answer: Being an artiest for me, is to prolong my spiritual life. If anyone can understand, appreciate or being touch by my work. Than I will live inside of their mind. GDCP helps me understand the meaning of every work of mine throughout the course. Which encourage me to peruse my goal. I used to have a set of comic book which introduce the history when I was a kid, they are my best friend while I use bathroom. Few years later, I was a bad student in high school, but I can fail on every class except history class. As my personal experience, the main target audience I’m aiming is students. I wish my design can be both beautiful and educational. Expressing knowledge with interesting way. The reason of targeting student is people often keep their young-period memory well, even till they are old. This thought all come to my mind while the course, GDCP guide me with interesting event, helps me dig out the deep thought inside my mind.
