I just finished up work on the kitchen assignment for vis dev class. This was my first time designing an interior. Its basically a kitchen based off the writings of Gary Soto, a Mexican American who grew up in 1950s Fresno California. I tried to stage this in 2 views, One of a kitchen in the evening after the kids have been tucked in for the night and the other in mid morning when mom does chores and the kids are busy getting into trouble (mixing a big bowl of pudding on the table).
To help facilitate this assignment we did a lot of outside research and studies, including these little still lifes I did in photoshop.
The Hardest part of this assignment was trying to capture the mood of the story in an imaginative way while remaining true to reference and research.
