After doing my collages I went onto trying to create them into something that looks like a city. I did some thumbnails and I really didn't like them, some of them look more like plants than anything else, so I felt a little bit lost with what I was doing and when I had my tutorial with Phil earlier in the week he suggested I take a different approach with things since the way I was doing stuff wasn't working. So I did some floor plans of my city to try help me figure out what type of structure I'll be working with.

So here are my floor plans. I'm not quite sure about them if any of them would work Until I start visualizing them in 3D its hard to say. So I think I'll make some more and then take them into Maya and see what I can come up with. 

After I did the floor plans I went back to one of my collages and thought I would give it another go at trying to create something out of it. This time going for designing the gate. I actually did a thumbnail I really liked, it took me quite a while to get it but it was the first thing I was happy with so I went on to develop it a little further and design the rest of it. 

I thought I would draw the gate straight on so I could figure out the way I wanted the rest of it to look. I like the idea of having people stuck within the gate and I like the arches that go around it but still not sure what the design on the gate will be. I kind of like Gate 2 but I'm not 100% sure about it. 

So now I need to go back to designing the city I think with the floor plans I made and using aspects of the gate I can come up with some thumbnails I like. I'm also thinking of taking my collages into Maya along with the floor plans and making them in 3D so I can look at them in a new way.
