I created an accurate as fictionally possible depiction of “The Land” in California by Edan Lepucki. Of course, as the title explains, these characters are in California, however, they travel to a community/part of land that is called “The Land.” When you think of the word land, one may think about a plot of land where you can build a house, a large open field with nothing else around it, or something completely different! Let your imagination run wild! I sure did in order to complete this assignment!
I give you… The Land by Elizabeth Finto!
So it maybe looks a little chaotic, but isn’t that how the apocalypse is? Chaotic? Just a bit. Much like this semester…
How did I create this image? Well, I’ll tell you!
I went to unsplash.com and typed in the word “landscape.” I was given hundreds of different landscape images. Out of the hundreds of pictures, I chose four specific pictures that I think would work well together while also illustrating The Land as I pictured it in my mind.
The four images I used above:
After downloading each stock image, I used Canva to merge all of the photos together. I placed the very bottom image as the base, and then added the next three on top of it while adjusting the transparency of each photo until I got a result that I liked and felt was the most realistic! There is a stream, mountains, flowers, and greenery for miles. I had a lot fun with this! What do you think? Let me know!
