But in the meantime, this is what I did last week to start breaking into these environments and thinking of them in a different light:
Test environment study I did, taking elements from a few different photos and combining them into one. This is a garbage dump, for Project Deanster.
Another little study I did of an apartment complex to grab at ideas for Project Deanster.
I tried creating some silhouettes of simple environment elements: trees and islands. I also tried out things like a house and a garbage can.
Some little bridge tests.
