      Post Graphic Design Department

      This forum is for DV's Picasso's. Your job is to make sure the writer's needs for pictures for their pages are taken care of. Originality is the name of the game. The writer must explain in-depth what s/he is trying to relay in the picture that the writer is wanting the designer to create. Writers, be as specific as possible. You may also take the initiative to start creating "original" pictures that you think will be useful for the writer's and organizer's to add to the book. You will also be in charge of designing a cover for the book
      Department Leader: Department leader's are supervisors of a certain department. They make sure work is being done and they have the authority to tweak, organize, call meetings etc. Staff may consult their department leader and department leader's may consult the Project Leader. Department leader's can hire additional staff members for their department at their discretion. Department leader's, if a staff member is not staying on task or doing what you are asking him/her for the benefit of the department (and ultimately the project) you can recommend them for termination to the Project Leader. Once again, I encourage Department leader's to hire more staff for their departments. To personally hire a new staff member, have them fill out an application and within that application in the additional comments section, have they say that you personally hired them.


      The author of this post wrote this cognizant of the fact that staff members work in more than one department.

      UPDATE:- Finished the points



      Look what I did
      Since we can't use the other one because of copyright I made my own.
      Any suggestions would be great.

      Reality check.

      You don't have to use these images by the way. I had nothing to do, so I thought it would be fun to make them.

      I thought we could use this to help describe how dreams are built up.




      Dream are built through perception and expectations.
      Even though the image above is a set of random shapes, our expectations and perception tells us its a cat.

      This is the same way dreams are built. For example, if in a dream you are stood in a hospital. Expectation tells you that there will be patients walking around. So now your stood in a hospital full of patients... ect

      If you want me to make another image then I will be happy to. A cat was the first thing that came to mind.

      EDIT - Ohh
      Am I right in thinking that in order to perceive or expect something we need Schemas in place?

      EDIT - ooh thanks Jeff

      This is not finished.
      I found it really hard to draw hands I had to find like a dozen reference pictures.

      Anyway, I was still working on it.

      Very nice. I like the perception pic. We should do some more of them. I have an interesting idea if anyone is willing to do this. ...if i can find it. Well I'll let you know, its very interesting in the form of perception. One picture forming into something very unique and different.

      How many people have flying pigs in their dreams?

      Just wondering of course, very nice mrdeano

      aha
      Well, I drew that because another reality check is to look around you to see if your surroundings make sense. Of course if there is a flying pig then you know your dreaming.

      Mkay, I was going to wait til some of the writing department contacted me so we know what exactly is going in the book, and what we need to create. If anyone has ideas for special stuff, extras, or just wants to get their art out, feel free. Tuus volat propriis. You fly on your own wings.

      As for the writing department and their needs, nothing specific as of yet. However, - for now, I'd like to see something completely original and LD-related that can (and will) be used by the writers in the book. Something likened unto what mrdeano did for example.

      Graphics department, we need a picture to go along with the intro, - read our (rough draft version) intro and come up with a picture that could go along with it. We will be removing the picture already in place.

      http://docs.google.com/View?id=ddm75ss6_29d5r3n7d4

      DDK, please make sure that a PM is sent to all of your staff members (which can be a direct quote of this post if you want) so that they will not miss this post and thus get started now.

      We would like this done ASAP.

      Thanks

      Before I go a head with this, I need to know if the book is going to be in black & white or in colour.
      Remembering that printing in colour is more expensive because it requires different paper and more ink to do so.

      So I think if everyone else agrees. All graphics from now on should be in black & white.
      I don't care if some of the graphics team moan about this. The value of this book is one of the most important thing. Members will not buy if it costs too much.

      Excellent question mrdeano. I have not given it much thought, (seeing as I was leaving creative control regarding images as a whole to the graphics department itself) but black and white is much more feasible in terms of cost than colored images within the book (with the exception of the book cover itself).

      hey everyone, here is a rough sketch of my idea for the chapter header illustration for the introduction. don't panic, it's just a sketch, not representative of the final version. the background, behind the window, is supposed to be clouds but the photo i used was bad so it will be more clear in the final. it's really loose in the sketch and will be cleaned up for the final, although i want to use charcoal, so there will be a primitive feel to the linework. the there will be no border edges for the illustration either, creating a floaty kind of effect.

      besides that all i want to do otherwise is add some sunbeam effects, or shadow cast by the girl and the window by the overhead light.

      It's a great sketch, but it also seems a little nightmarish, and that's not like lucid dreaming.

      yeah jeff mentioned it looked a little ghost-ish. i'm going to make sure that the figure has more of a solid feel in the final version. thanks for the critique!
