4.1.5.Visual Design Concept
The theme of my thesis follows concepts set forth by traditional Korean painting. Conceptual ideals, such as antiquity, far east and the orient, tradition and texture are used to reinforce the messages of my thesis. Main and secondary characters are portrayed in bright, primary colors and white, while backgrounds are rendered in earth tones and colors with low saturation. The basic color concepts are based on ancient lifestyles and social statuses recorded in the record of Korean History. The pictorial elements are used to supplement the audio and the base story in strengthening the metaphor.
