Did i miss to notice all the symbols in your sketch that are asked in the question?. you should use all the elements that are given in the question, other wise you are risking your marks.. redo a different composition using all the symbols. on the week end , if you get time, do the photography assignment to improve your perspective visualisation skills. you are required to take a lot of pictures in ants eye view ( example, when you stand infornt of a tall building and looking up to see the top most floor window of the building) and birds eye view ( looking down at a place that is at the foot of the building, from a tall building) you can get creative by taking macro photographs - taking close shots /pictures of objects ( for example, how would a TV look if you look at it from one of its screen corner. ) this will enable you to visualise the extreme perspective conditions, and how the proportion of objects behave from different angles. take 5 different objects and try to get birds , ants and normal eye view snap shots. submit most interesting ones by sunday evening. you will get feedback on monday morning 6th april (sat, sun holiday)
