Hello everyone!

Remember to post your progress for this last project regularly! The more you post, the more feedback you will receive! (post your pinterest boards, initial thumbnails, etc...)
I'm looking forward to seeing everyone's progress on this!

Hey everyone!

Here's your task, please, READ CAREFULLY!!

Pretend you just got a freelance comission and I am your Art Director. Read the brief and the instructions below very carefully and provide the work on a timely basis, by the deadline.

- The brief: " ...and what, in the end, became the jewel of our simple suburban street, was the unique tree house Mr. Carruthers built on his giant Oak. The fall of 1964 was really unforgettable..."

- Your final task: create two finished sketches of the scene, being one Black and White and one in Color, suitable for presentation.
- Deadline: 12/07/2017 (a month from today) There will be no extensions for this assignment!!!

- Tips:
READ THE BRIEF AND MAKE NOTES!!! On it you have: location (suburban street), the main subject (tree house), type of tree (big, giant Oak tree), season (Fall) and year (1964). Your final images should reflect all these.
- You have exactly four weeks to complete these assignment, so divide your time accordingly.

Deliverables and Workflow:
- Begin by creating a board on Pinterest, with lots of references of trees, tree houses, 1964 houses, streets and cars, Fall season, etc... Also, inspirational images, such as concept art and illustrations that inspire and sets the mindset for your work
- Create a set of Thumbnails to establish the composition
- Create a set of loose, gestural sketches to begin visualizing the elements and the composition. You can also create separate sketches (you can, for example create a set of sketches just for the trees alone, and another set for houses, etc..)
- Establish the quality of light (light source, direction and intensity) and create a tonal sketch (black, white and greys). You can "borrow" your tonal key from a movie frame, such as we did on the last assignments
- Establish a color pallete that represents the mood described in the brief. You can create a specific Gamut to work from, or you can create a color sphere from a movie frame.
- Use 3D (SketchUp/Maya, whatever you feel comfortable) if you think it will help you establishing the base for the houses, tree and tree house.
- Paintover and finished sketches.

YOU MUST DELIVER ALL OF THE ABOVE!! Deliver as fast or as slow as you want, but I want to see all this: Pinterest Board, Thumbnails, Gesture Sketches, Tonal Sketches, Color Sketch, 3D (if used) and Finished Sketches. If you choose to deliver your Pinterest Board in your first hours (or days) and post a bit of work every other day or so, perfect. If, on the other hand, you choose to do everything on your last week, ok as well, but bear in mind that you will receive less feedback and most likely will deliver rushed work, which will reflect on your evaluation and grading for this assignment. So be responsible.

I will provide feedback on this as fast as I can, almost real time, so REMEMBER, on this assignment, I am the Art Director, so the more you post on our community, the more feedback you will receive.

Feel free to ask any questions you want. WORK HARD!

Consider this a hipotetical contract between you and me for your last assignment of the semester, so please, reply "Ok" in the comments below so you "sign" the contract" (and I know you read everything).
