I took a few screencaps from Seven Samurai (1954) and made some rough composition abstractions.
I also took two of the abstract thumbnails from the previous lesson and changed the setting/ context.
Last of all, here's one more set of 'daily' thumbnails. A simple abstract story set in space and another planet with maybe a Dune-ish/ Star Wars kind of setting.
In retrospect, I went slightly over the 20-30 min time I set for myself for each set of studies and abstractions. I still tend to fuss over minor details (like what's in that movie frame) or how can I make this abstract shape *slightly* more representative? It's something I've got to figure out over time.
