I had another meeting with Lynn today as we didn’t get everything covered yesterday. I’m having a bit of a crisis with my art style right now, with the style I’ve chosen going against my research – its all pointing to using abstract images, but I need to show my texturing skills for my folio. After doing my Proteus case study I tweeted at Ed Key to get his opinion on what makes Proteus so immersive and present.
As if I wasn’t feeling bad enough about my decision already, he said that the abstract art style is what makes it so present.
I told Lynn about this and she suggested going back to the drawing board and doing some research on traditional abstract artists and those who influenced them, possibly the cubists or futurists. Hopefully in there I should find something that can help me create a middle ground between styles.
