More on the art deco project. Here are the initial finished sketches for some relief sculpted panels that will make up most of the 2nd floor. I’ll be finishing these pieces out themselves as well as reproducing the designs in 3D.
Working on a deceivingly intensive art deco building project that is requiring a LOT of decorative design work. It’s a project I’ve resurrected from a long time ago. Back then, I was going for speed, so I had thrown together a sculptural support cap from an old character model I had made for something else, but since I’m taking more time with it now, I thought I would make a unique to replace the old one. Here’s the concept:
The design might change a bit based on feedback, but the plan is to have her made of stone like the rest of the building with the drapery made of bronze to match other decorative elements on the building. Look for the 3D version sometime.
So a random idea turns into a bus doodle which turns into a photoshopified design which I’ll probably use to try out screenprinting with. Wish me luck!
And the bus sketch (this is not in any way a Disney thing, I merely used the company notepad to draw on, which is what I’m primarily drawing on these days it seems…)
