Schoolism - Nathan Fowkes week 4

One of my assignments for the Nathan Fowkes class over at Schoolism- this time showing emotions with our lighting setups I don't know how successful it was, but I'm pretty happy with how these turned out.

The 'anxious' one really speaks to me. As someone with anxiety this is how I would describe it in colors! Great job.

This must be a really insightful study! amazing colors can change the whole mood of the scene O.O

Rageful reminds me of Walden and the Werewolf, a short videogame about a man who was bitten by a werewolf, and is trying to hunt down the wolf himself before he turns. Near the end of the game, the world looks like that.

I don't know why, but this almost made me cry. Really beautiful, like, some of the most moving art I've seen. I don't know what, because one could say that, "Oh, there are such better drawings out there, paintings, book covers, movie posters," but this really got me. The way you took such a simple place a made it have so much life. It's perfect, all of them are, the whole set.

Thank you for bringing us this.

This is the sort of assignment that would terrify me.

I think they are well done in matching the mood with the image. I especially like "hopeful."

I find them to be very good, especially the anxious one, I did certainly feel different things with each one O.O

Hm, this might be subjective but not sure about hopeful and 'morose'... seems just kind of flat in comparison with the others, maybe?
Other seems pretty spot on though, good job :D

The "ray of light" imagery in Hopeful was so very on the nose. :D (Big Grin)

I looked over them without reading first, and I think you got them down quite well! I'm not very sure about "hopeful" though, I think the black in the foreground gives the whole mood a bit of a too dark atmosphere.
Thank you for posting these, they were very helpful!

These are great! You captured "calm" perfectly, it reminds me a lot of the morning walks I used to have.  The last one is particularly striking,  there is something unnerving about the underlit scene.
