Week 1 - City-Scape "stumble uponed"
Found this image during a random session of stumble upon. I am unsure of who did it or where it came from, as I have saved it to my computer long ago. I placed it in a folder marked "motivation." This folder contains several images both illustration and photographic, that I find inspiring. The folder is selected as my desktop wallpaper, so the images constantly rotate on the screen. I picked this image because it is very busy and fun. It has a lot of Japanese influences, which is a culture I very much admire. As I continue to push through college to become a theme park designer, I find this image has a lot of those qualities found in concept art of parks. It shows a large amount of space, with different areas of focus. It has characters doing different actions, which help establish the look and feel of the environment. The lighting and shadows help create a mood. I find that if you look at this image long enough, you can soon see it as a real place. That is what is most inspiring about it, any image that can be created into something real.
