Assignment #3c: Midterm Summary
In this summary, I'll be reviewing what I have done for the following assignments:
Assignment #1, #3a and b, Exercise #2 (redone)
Note: the assignment I left out are the ones I felt did not need to be mentioned because they don't take part in my research project.
Assignment #1: For this assignment, I talked about my love for Walt Disney and his work. I talked about how he was such a big inspiration to me as a kid and has influenced my art style, creativity, and general interest. I talked about how he combines logical and mathematical formulas to aid in his creations of artwork. I also looked at the concept designs that were the starting points to famous Disneyland. With this being the starting point, I started looking into what I myself wanted to create in concepts and find where my dreams and imagination led me.
Assignment #3a: Here, I was researching to hone in on my own interests for creative work and find a clear pathway to a piece I'm thinking of creating with a better awareness of my own interest. I've found that I have a lot of interest in the fantasy genre; I looked at what defines fantasy what aspects of fantasy did I like the most.
Assignment #3b: For this assignment, I looked at 3D modeling software and its aspects that I could use for my final project. I looked at its expansiveness, purpose, and other features to find what it was capable of doing in creative practice in creating an immersive, imaginative space.

I found that I enjoyed Walt Disney's work because of how imaginative it was; I also enjoy the fantasy genre because it was so vast and free. With that in mind, I realized I found an interest in imaginative "world-building". This made me realize that my goal for this project was to create a personal imaginative space which also shown in the redone version of Exercise 2 below:
