I really enjoyed this project as I have lots of ideas for story visual scenes and sequences of pictures. I really enjoy playing with different scenes ideas. I enjoy and feel I have strong skills in Adobe Photoshop and used this to make my final images. I feel proud of myself because I used what have learned and I built up my skills, this can only make me a stronger designer. I would like to carry on work with my project ‘Flood in Hull’ in future.

I used Adobe Photoshop to make a sample image of a man with a touch light without a flood.

I presented a range of Photoshop generated images showing the effects of rising sea levels on places in Hull. I used my own photographs of places and surface reflections of water to support these developments. I used both well-known landmark sites and more unusual personal sites to reflect both the personal and more public side of this imaginary scenario.

I used different type font for the title ‘Flood in Hull’ and ‘Tomorrow’s world – The Silence’. I also take photo of myself and I add it behind the title.

Influences, Research, Sources and Ideas

I started by writing a list of my own choosing and I chose create graphic novel and post apocalyptic.

I started five different mind maps for: genres, characters, character’s jobs, character abilities and Hull. I also added list of how a character grows (character Arc) and build a character.

I started write an idea of story in graphic novel: post-apocalyptic, time travel, supernatural, crime, stealth, action, thriller, mystery, survival horror, superhero, driver, drama, fantasy and Moby Dick in space. I started write an idea of a simple visual map of a story and it shows how the story progresses from start to end.

My initial idea was related to post-apocalyptic events in particular that something happens which results in survival of only the deaf. I created a list of title names for graphic novel. I first chose ‘Tomorrow’s world – The Silence’ but later I changed my mind and the title is ‘Flood in Hull’.

I used the Internet to help me research and to look for similar to flood and examples of flood. I looked at similar novel books, films and video games as research: Flood (novel, 2002), The Drowned World(novel, 1962), Flood Child (novel, 2009), Flood and Fire (novel, 2010), Flood (film, 2007), Hard Rain (film, 1998), Deep Impact (film, 1998), Hours (film, 2013), Raw Danger (video game, 2007) and The Legend of Zelda: The WindWaker (video game, 2013).

I researched artists to find any links to post-apocalyptic, I found one artist: John Martin (painter).

I take photo of Hull and I also researched to find images of Hull from the Internet.

I started drawing main character and I have different ideas for logo (three crowns). Also I have drawn character’s faces, building of Hull, Cochlear implants and title ‘The Silence World’.

My Final Major Project

•June 10, 2014 • Leave a Comment

My title of project is ‘Flood in Hull’ and development ideas for graphic novel. The story is about a deaf boy who waking up and heslowly realises that things in Hull have changed into flood. He slowly realises and meets other people that are also Deaf. The boy learns that Hearing killed by a strange sound but Deaf people not affected. Deaf now in world with technology still for hearing, but no hearing left. TV and radio was working but nothing happened. The reader doesn’t have to know from the start what has happened and keep them guessing. I feel graphic novel is a big project and has lots of writing of the story make me difficult project. I want to focus on my skills (computer with Adobe Photoshop) and use same story. I make my story visual scenes and sequences of pictures showing me (hero) with different backgrounds (pictures of streets, areas and town in Hull). a_title

My final project, ‘The Book World’ is an action-adventure game and it is about a boy who falls down into the book world from real life. It will use four book classics, Dracula, Dr Jekyll & Mr Hyde, Moby Dick and Sherlock Holmes. I really enjoyed this project as I have lots of ideas for characters, animation and storyboard designs. I feel I am a strong character animation designer and really enjoy playing with different animation ideas. I enjoy and feel I have strong skills in Adobe Photoshop and used this to make my final trailer and final eight images. I feel proud of myself because I used what have learned and I built up my skills, this can only make me a stronger designer.
