First Idea: Kitchen Stove

Posted by Sam Hayes On Tuesday, December 01, 2009
I thought I would crack on through this first week of our third unit as I'm always rushing things in the last week or so. My first idea Ive had for my enviroment is a kitchen / dining room. The image would show the kitchen area as well as a table and chair. On the main back wall of the picture would be a large window looking out the front of the house, with a car in the drive with it's headlights on. However, in the room, the stove is still burning, next to a newspaper left carelessly next to it. On the table there is a half-eaten piece of toast and the chair is pulled at a scruffy angle, showing someone left the house in a rush. The lighting outside is semi-dark, leaving the image to interpretation; has the owner just gone out the door on the way somewhere in the early morning and catastrophe is about to strike? Is the owner just returning home in the evening and the stove has been on all day? or is the stove meant to be on and there is someone else in the house. I think this image would have the ambiquity that phil mentioned, it could have many different stories behind it.
This was a bit of a long-winded paragraph, so I'm including a couple of images below. One is a sketch of the layout I want the kitchen to have (The quality is quite bad), the second is a quick painting in photoshop of the colour/mood of the painting as well as some more layout.

    Hey all, I'm Liam, a third year student.

    Everyone is now using blogger on our course, and there's a nice community growing with people following each others blogs and helping each other with issues. Not everyone is linked up to each other though, and I thought a central blog for the course which everyone could post to would be a pretty nice idea. I've made one at this address:

    It would also mean that rather then relying on the slow blogfeed and having to surf through the 70 odd blogs that we have between us, we can just come straight to this one.
    With a large knowledge base between everyone a lot of issues could be resolved fairly quickly, and so any problems can be posted here, and we will all have quick access to them.
    Also if anyone has found any good tutorials, has started a new project blog, has had a breakthrough they're pleased with, or whatever else, they can whack it on here.
    Just put a subject in the post title (eg. ISSUE - Blend Shapes, TUTORIAL - Advanced Rigging etc) and blog away.

    If you want to join comment in the first post with your email address (can't do it via linking) and I'll send you an author invite. If you don't want your email address published then just send me one ( saying that you want in.
    When you've joined post saying hello, a link to your blog and whatever else you want.

    Cheers, hopefully hear from you all soon!

    Liam x
