Frank's Sketchbook Entry of the Day
| A More Atmospheric Version
July 29, 2022
OK, I finally am declaring it good or at least good enough to be done.
This is more of the vision of the Bradbury Building that appeared in the
movie Blade Runner. I took the last color verison and made it way darker,
shifting the colors more towards red. I added the two spotlight beams,
highligting the things they hit as well as some other highlights, like the
windows. And then I added smoke that the light catches. And then cropped
the picture to start around the second floor and cut off beyond the
pinnacle of the ceiling to make everything a bit tighter (smaller
space and more cohesive to the idea).
This was all done in Photoshop. I used
this as a reference image, but just for ideas. I didn't steal anything
directly from it, not even the color palette. And it was taken from a
different direction than my friend David's original photo that I used,
so copying would have worked.
I'm pretty happy with the result.

I tend to doodle. Over the years, I've accumulated lots of random
sketches of things, sometimes people, sometimes things, and sometimes
just abstract lines. The basic idea on these pages is for me to slowly
scan in highlights from my collection of random quick doodles. I also
am providing a place where I can explain what it is or what motivated
it or perhaps some reason why I'm not to blame. With the sketches of
people, their name may be hand-written, or there might be a talk title
provided, but I will tend to avoid providing full names. I don't mind
if people know who they are, I just don't want them coming up on search
engine hits, since that might be a bit rude.
Note that the images are PNGs with transparency. Mozilla and Firefox
properly render them. Safari too, I think. Internet Exporer doesn't.
I don't care.
If you want to see the image without the annoying blue-lined background
image, just click on the image.
