Nuclear Waistland


  1. Use more gobos and perhaps play with painting with light (a flashlight and long exposure). As it stands the environment doesn't have that wasteland feel. What is the color of light in a wasteland? Is there a nuclear blast or do the soldiers glow? The top image is better with its play of shadow and light.

  2. I found this concept really interesting, but the brightness of the background distracts from the figures. Maybe desaturate or take some interest away from the background. It took me a second to recognize the melted army men. My first thought was maybe try the "painting with light" technique to bring interest to the army men, like Mougel said earlier.

  3. I think it would be interesting to see a "portrait" of the army characters in close-up so I could see all of the intricate parts of the piece...and think the shallow depth of field you're using would fit well.

    agree with joseph on the lighting of the explosion

    it would look cool I think if you cut the paper where the explosion is along the lines and pulled and pushed part of it to create more depth there, and you could also experiment then with light coming from the explosion, but I don't know if thats a direction you want to take.
