Space and Environment: Influence Map 1


This is my first influence map. I first started researching castles. Then i thought about the texture of the castle,
as it is described as old and earthy. Though the book does not suggest where it is or what location i imagine it to be on a cliffside or hilltop of some sort. There are certain perspectives and areas that i would like to test out as thumbnails; such as, the book describes a castle hall with emerald structures in it (hence the stained glass window and emerald). Lastly, i want to challenge myself with perspective and the use of low light, there is a scene of a fire blazing as onlookers watch quietly, I'm hoping that testing out the bright colourful emerald light and the orange fire flames I can come up with some atmospheric scenes.

  1. Hey Rosalyn again! You seem to have a lot going on with your influence map, its good to see your ideas unwrapping. :D I have a few tips on how you can make the most of Influence maps.

    Don't limit yourself to this template. It's just there to give you guidance, but you can start from a completely blank document and customize it yourself and name it.. Make it more 'you' if you know what I mean :) Also, you mention that you thought about castles, and textures. You can make a separate ones for them. Take a look at Lydia's maps for example:

    Little details like that make a difference. Hope it helps :)
